What to Do to Prevent a Blocked Sink Billingshurst

If you have a blocked sink in Billingshurst it is never any fun and we are pretty sure that you have never had a blocked sink party at your home. We would believe it though, if you told us that you have had an un-blocked sink party before! There is just something better about celebrating an un-blocked sink, especially if it took you a while to get it unblocked!

There are many things that you can do to prevent having another blocked sink in your future:

Block the Hair

There probably won’t be much hair in your kitchen sink, but we can guarantee that there is some hair in your bathroom sink. It falls in there as you are brushing your hair every morning or as you are shaving. There is not much that you can do about the little pieces that you shave off, but you should try to prevent any long pieces of hair from going down your drain. This long hair can clump together and cause a major blockage in your sink.

Cut Down on Fats and Grease

We know that you have been tempted to dump that grease from the hamburgers you just fried or that bacon you just cooked down your kitchen drain. However, we recommend that you never give those ideas another thought in the future. Fat and grease are two items that can get stuck to the side of your pipes and the thicker it gets, the bigger of a blockage you have.

Place the Food in the Garbage

Certain foods like bread, pasta, rice, and quinoa expand when they are introduced to water. If you place these items down your drain, they will stick together over time and cause a blockage that will be difficult to remove.

Use Your Dishwasher Wisely

If you load dishes into your dishwasher without scraping the leftover bits of food into the garbage, you are setting yourself up for a blocked drain. Your dishwasher uses the same drain as your kitchen sink and even though the dishwasher water gets extremely hot, bits of grease can get through to the pipes. Pieces of food can also escape the trap inside your dishwasher and find its way into your pipes. It is important that you follow the same rules when loading your dishwasher that you do for your kitchen sink.

A blocked sink can be a hassle, but if you follow the tips above, you shouldn’t have a blocked sink for a long time. However, you will want to call a professional if you continue to have blocked sinks without a known cause. The issue may be somewhere further down into the main pipes of your home.
