Is your sink draining very slowly or not at all? Does it have an odd, stinky, or off-putting odor? Do you hear gurgling sounds coming from the drain? These are the signs that your sink likely has a clog. With a two-bowl sink, you can tell something is blocking your drain when the water goes down in one bowl and comes up in the other.
While commercial drain cleaners seem like an inexpensive quick-fix for your draining issues, they are harmful and toxic. Their powerful chemicals can potentially damage your plumbing system and pipes, and even give you a chemical burn if they come in contact with your skin.
If over the counter cleaning supplies are gone, many might consider fixing their drainage issue with an online tutorial. Yet, it is important to keep in mind that plumbing tools like a drain snake or drain auger—the tools professionals often use to unclog sinks—should be handled by an experienced user. Improper use could lead to injury or damage to your plumbing system.
