  • HOW TO UNBLOCK A KITCHEN DRAIN By Heppelthwaite Red Van Plumbers http://www.Heppelthwaite.co.uk
  • 1. Remove Everything The first preliminary step is to remove every obvious cloggage from the sink area. If this doesn’t work, proceed to the next step...
  • 2. Using a Plunger Step 1: Boil some water in a kettle or large pot, and pour it into the sink. Be prepared for some rising hot steam when pouring into the blocked drain!
  • 2a. Using a Plunger Step 2: Use a coat hanger or something similar to ensure the boiling water seeps into the blockage. With any luck, this might dislodge the problem waste, too.
  • 2b. Using a Plunger Step 3: Get Plunging! Place the plunger over the drain and use an aggressive plunging motion - but slowly and forcefully. Let the plunger take hold and work in vertical movements. Check if the water drains normally. If so, you’ve done the job!
  • 3. Cleaning Chemicals There are lots of drain unblocking chemicals on the market, but these can be considered unwelcome in a family home. There are alternatives...
  • 3a. Baking Soda & Vinegar Baking soda + water is a fearsome combination. Pour a cup of baking soda down the drain, and then a cup of vinegar on top. Wait for 5 minutes and then pour some boiling water down to follow.
  • Safety First! Remember that when you’re trying to unblock a drain with a plunger, with chemicals, or with the baking soda & vinegar solution, safety is paramount. Always wear rubber gloves and if the blockage won’t budge, call a professional.
  • If in doubt, call a plumber!... Heppelthwaite Red Van Plumbers can fix the drain blockage for you if you can’t budge it. Just give us a call on 01628 533 550. Or visit us at: http://www.Heppelthwaite.co.uk
