What’s all the fuss about sink blockage?
A blocked bathroom sink or kitchen sink is caused by:
- Foreign objects
- Accumulation of hair, food scraps, grease and other gunk
- Heavy rain or storms
- Damaged, corroding or badly installed plumbing.
When you pull out the plug, a blocked kitchen sink or blocked bathroom sink means the water doesn’t go down efficiently – or at all. A sink that is blocked may also:
- Produce bad smells
- Cause a mess or damage
- Lead to flooding
- Breed mould, bacteria and other health & safety hazards.
Are there any other signs and symptoms of a blocked kitchen sink?
If it’s blocked and a messy puddle is already on the floor, you know you have a problem. But there are other signs of a troublesome kitchen sink, including:
Your bathroom and kitchen sink work very hard, and if a blockage is brewing, that typical and foul ‘biofilm’ drain smell is a sure sign that something is up.
Before it becomes completely blocked, all that muck effectively reduces the circumference of the drain and slows the progress of the draining water. Eventually, it will block completely.
When you hear your drains gurgling, it’s the sound of air that is trapped around an obstruction as the water tries to go down.
If you notice any of these things, don’t ignore them! Partial blockages almost certainly become a sink issue before long, or they are the symptom of a bigger problem.
