Every household uses their kitchen sinks and bathroom sinks on a daily basis. Each family understands how important it is to keep their kitchen and bathroom sinks clean and unclogged as most of the cleaning takes place there. For instance, we wash our pans, pots, dishes etc. in our kitchen sinks and for brushing, shaving, washing etc. we use our bathroom. Therefore cleaning of our sinks on a daily basis is of utmost importance to prevent flooding of the sinks which results in emission of bad oduor which is extremely annoying. If you face the challenge of blocked drains, do not panic as you can unblock your drain easily.
It is very important for you to find out the reason behind your blocked drains. If you find that water in your bathroom or kitchen is not draining out, then you must first stop using that kitchen sink or bathroom. If more water is used in that drain which is blocked, it will become messier, therefore to avoid such situation, stop using it. Wear your gloves and goggles and also put on some old clothes as you might dirty it in the process of unblocking your drain. Now open the cover of your drain and with the help of a rod attached to a plunger, dislodge the blockage. Once you are done with this, flush a lot of water and clear out any left out debris. Start using the bathroom or the kitchen as the drains have been unblocked.
If you monitor the drains on a regular basis, you can avert such situation in the future. Make sure you dispose your rubbish in trash cans instead of flushing it down the drain. Try to rinse your cutleries and plates before loading it in the dishwasher as leftover food can easily block the drains. Many products are available in the market which can be used in order to unblock the drains. There are many chemical drain cleaners which when poured into the blockage will help unblocking it. They also help in eliminating bad odour and keep the drains clean. Many people prefer using homemade products for unblocking their drains. For example, some people use baking soda and vinegar along with hit water to unblock their drains. It is a very effective method of unblocking the drain. Pour a cup of baking soda in a dry sink and then pour 2 cups of boiling water into it. Now wait for some time and add 1 more cup of baking soda and then add 1 cup of white vinegar. Now you can plug the drain and soon you will hear a gurgling sound which means that your drain is cleared or unblocked. You will see bubbles and now you can put another 2 cups of boiling water into the sink. This will clear away the residue and you will have an unblocked drain. Thus you can easily unblock your drain using this natural method which is inexpensive as well as environment friendly. You can do this every month and prevent blockage of your drain and in turn prevent bad odour.
Of course, you can always try one of the very effective sink unblocks, which you can find in the nearest supermarket, follow the directions for use and your sink/bath tub will be unblocked in no time.
