Is this an emergency?

Providing Service in these CT Communities:

You know when your kitchen sink is most likely to clog? When you have the least amount of time or patience to deal with it. Or, at least that’s how it usually feels.

But what if it were a great deal simpler to clear that messy clog than you think? Put the following DIY tips into action and see for yourself:

  1. Let the sink drain as much as possible.
  2. If it’s not fully draining, grab a short-handled sink plunger and to for it.
  3. If the clog still isn’t clear, pour ½ cup each of baking soda and distilled white vinegar down the drain, followed by teapot full of boiling hot water.
  4. If the clog still isn’t clear, repeat step 3.
  5. Still no luck? Purchase a drain snake from a hardware store or home center and follow the instructions on the package.

Here’s what you shouldn’t try:

  1. Chemical drain cleaners.
  2. If you use a chemical drain cleaner anyway, don’t use a plunger afterwards as the liquid can irritate your skin or eyes.
  3. If the clog is in your garbage disposal, don’t ever put your hand down there.

Once you get your kitchen drain flowing again, start treating it once a month with an enzyme-based drain solution. It won’t harm your pipes or the public water supply.
