Have a clogged bathroom sink drain? Here are common methods for unclogging
a clogged drain.
Start by using a plunger to remove the clog. Use a plunger with a suction
cup large enough to cover the drain opening. Fill the basin with enough
water to cover the plunger cup. Use 15 to 20 quick, strong strokes to
remove the clog. Use this method as your first attempt.
Many people automatically turn to chemicals. However, be careful if the
drain is completely clogged, as the chemicals will remain in the sink
basin, and be of more danger to you when attempting to clean. Chemicals
can burn the skin, and can cause sickness if the room isn’t properly
ventilated. Also be wary of using chemicals continuously as they can damage
A drain auger, or snake, reaches down to the clog and pulls it free for
complete extraction. For deep clogs, your
local plumber can help find and completely remove the problem from the source.
