Blocked Sink in Birmingham ?

 

If you have a blocked sink in Birmingham we can send you assistance to get it cleared for you.

 

If you can try and clear it yourself you may be successful.

 

  • Initially remove any obstacles from inside the plug hole i.e. food, hair and any other blockages.
  • This can be achieved by using a suitable chemical cleaner or caustic soda. (Ensure chemical is suitable for the type of sink and plug hole you have e.g. enamel sink or chrome plug hole).
  • Always read the label and any warning material when using chemicals and the correct gloves and clothes if advised.
     
  • If this does not clear the sink then a sink plunger may be required.
     
  • Before 'plunging' cover the overflow with a damp cloth and hold it there, this will force the air to hopefully clear the blockage.

  • Place the plunger cup over the plug hole, and plunge vigorously up and down for a while.

  • Should the plunging not clear the blockage then the next step is to remove the trap under the sink. A bucket should be placed under the trap to catch the water, which will come from the sink.
     
  • Check the trap for any blockage, if it is clear then a pipe cleaner (such as a flexible curtain wire)

should be used to dislodge the blockage if possible.

 

We also clear blocked toilets and drains.
