Sink repairs Streatham- Types of blocked sink repair methods to consider

A blocked sink is a common problem in most households, and it is very important to know where a problem is arising while you are trying to resolve the clogging problem, especially if you don’t want the problem to re-occur frequently. There are four major blocked sink repair methods, and these are:

Repair of plumbing trap,
The use of sink cleaner chemicals,
The use of a sink plunger, and
The use of a plumbing snake.

When it comes to the removal of clogged sinks, it is not advisable to make use of sink unclogging chemicals, the reason being that these chemicals may work like magic, and in a very fast manner, but they are only good for a limited cause of blocked sinks. Chemical de-clogging methods are ideally suitable only if the clogging is caused by grease or hair. Some hard-to-get clogging materials may not be removed easily with the use of chemical substances. In order to dissolve the material blocking your sink, you need to scoop a sufficient amount of the chemical and dilute with 50%of water. You must be sure that the clogging items are indeed greese or hair or some other items that can be dissolved easily by the chemical.

A toilet plunger is another method whereby simple sink blockages can be easily cleared. The plunger has a rubber cup at the top, and you need to ensure that this rubber cup covers the entire sink draining hole; likewise, you need to ensure that there is sufficient water in the sink. The main principle behind this sink unblocking is that the cap exerts pressure through the drain, thus forcing the blocking materials to be removed through the pumps.

To save yourself the time and energy needed in unclogging a blocked sink, make sure you contact professional Boiler repairs Streatham repairers.
