Blocked Sinks

The plumbing system in your home is pure magic when it’s working as intended. However, a single malfunction like a sink that doesn’t drain can turn your entire home into a nightmare. Clogged sinks are some of the most recurring plumbing issues for UK homeowners. Blocked kitchen or bathroom sinks will interrupt drainage, leaving you with virtually a useless fixture. When this happens, the expertise of expert drainage cleaners can save you significant trouble, which is where we come in.

No1PHD provides drainage services that range from new fixture installation to maintenance to repair. We serve various regions in the UK, offering dependable solutions for a number of issues. Clogged sinks are some of the areas where we excel. We carry out thorough cleaning to ensure that your sink is in tip-top shape to cater to your needs.

What is the best way of handling blocked sinks? It depends on what caused the clogging in the first place. Here, we explore some of the common ones we encounter.

Gunk Buildup

A lot of dirt can end up in the drainage via the sink. Soap and cleaning detergent can solidify and cake on the sides of the pipes. Grease and fats are the biggest culprits. Fat and cooking oil from used utensils can fail to dissolve properly, accumulating in the pipes. Food remnants lead to the same problem. When people don’t clear their plates after eating then throw those little bits in the sink, some of particles can ends up in the drainage system. All these block the pipes, reducing the flow of wastewater. Bathroom sinks have the same problem. Most people brush their hair in the bathroom sinks, and those strands get caught up in the pipes. Skin flakes and dirt can also stick to the side of the pipes, and over time, this buildup decreases the diameter of the passages.

We combat these types of blockages in various ways. Hot water is always a good start to help dissolve any fats, grease and soap. However, your sink might require more than that, especially if the accumulation has been in existence for a while. Our drain cleaners might have to remove the U pipe. This is the part of the drainage that looks like an intersection below your sink. A majority of sinks get blockages in this region. The bend in the pipe provides a good place for all that stuff to sit. No1PHD uses a range of drain cleaners to ensure that your kitchen and bathroom sinks are in the best condition. Our descaling and fat removal services are some of the best because we are meticulous.

Corroded Pipes

Your sink might be failing to drain water because the pipes it connects to are corroded. Regardless of the quality of pipes, over time, they can suffer corrosion. Various factors like the type of wastewater they carry, the materials and environmental conditions can cause pipes to corrode. If you allow the corrosion to accumulate, it will be difficult for water to flow from the sink to the sewer system. However, corrosion is not easily detectable because you can’t see it unless you take apart the plumbing.

Our professional services are available to deal with precisely these issues. If you suspect that your pipes are too old and might not be up to the task, call us. Our drain experts will conduct thorough inspections before recommending solutions. Replacing worn-out pipes is the only way to guarantee a fully functioning plumbing system. In some cases, pipe scaling might be the issue. Scaling is a result of hard water depositing various minerals on the surface of the pipes. In small amounts, pipe scale is not harmful; in fact, it can help reduce corrosion. Too much of it, however, decreases the size of the pipe, which can block the flow of wastewater. Our plumbers are well-trained and experienced in descaling plumbing pipes without causing any further damage.

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.

For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
