Minor Drain Cleaning Fixes

Our sinks get used frequently and chances are, you likely have other things than just water entering the drain. Hair, toothpaste, makeup, food, and many other things can eventually build up and make it harder for your sink to drain. Drain cleaning can help clear your pipes and create a more efficient flow.

Here at Top Notch Plumbing Services Inc., we are more than happy to come and provide you with professional drain cleaning that is guaranteed to satisfy. However, there are a few steps you can take before calling our team.

1. Baking Soda and Vinegar – This solution is a great way to deodorize your garbage disposal and drain. Boil a few cups of water, then pour some of it down the drain. Follow this by 1/3 cup of baking soda and let it sit for a few minutes. Add 1 cup of vinegar to the remaining boiled water and pour this down the drain. For best results, follow this with another cup or two of boiling water.

2. Plunger –Plungers aren’t just for unclogging toilets — they’re also a great tool for drain cleaning. However, make sure you’re using the right type of plunger as sink plungers look different than toilet plungers.

3. Hair removal tools – If you have a lot of hair in the bathroom sink, you can find pipe cleaner-like tools at your hardware store that are simple and safe to use to remove hair. Chemical solutions, however, may not be safe. They can actually damage your drain and typically only provide a temporary solution.

If these drain cleaning methods are not doing the job, or if you want help, please don’t hesitate to give us a call. We offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all of our work. Reach out to us today.
