10 Nov Bathroom Sink Clogged
Boca Raton 33428 (Bathroom Sink Clogged)
Cause of Problem:
Bathroom Sink would not drain due to build up blocking pipe.
A commercial office building placed a service call for a bathroom sink clogged in the lobby restroom. There was multiple lavatory sinks in the restroom, however only one was effected by the clog. The Rhino Rooter plumber was able quickly jump into action and use a wet-vac to vacuum out the water from the sink! Then he removed the p-trap from the bottom of the sink. The plumber then used his drain machine with steel cable to snake the drain line. Once the cable reached the end he then connected the p-trap back to the sink and tested the drain. And BOOM the bathroom sink clogged was no more! The cable did pull back a bunch of black sludge, YUCK!
Bathroom sinks that become clogged are a common thing. There are many reasons which may cause the sink to clog. A bathroom sink clogged could be caused simply by soap scum and natural body oils from washing your hands. When you really think about how much actually goes down your sink (soap, toothpaste, hair, make-up, etc.) it may make you think twice! You should never use a drain opening product in your sink. The best way to maintain your sink drain is baking soda and vinegar. Use two parts white vinegar and one part baking soda. Mix them together and pour down your drain. Allow to sit in drain for a couple hours in pipes. Then use very hot (carefully with protection) and pour it down the drain to flush away the build up!
