Clog Prevention | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

Billy the Sunshine Plumber is here to help you if your plumbing develops stubborn clogs.

You had envisioned a Valentine’s Day spent outdoors, having fun. But it looks as if the weather doesn’t want to cooperate. Your bathroom sink has also decided not to cooperate. Instead of draining quickly, the water simply sits there and goes down one small drip at a time.

It appears as if you have some type of clog forming. That’s not unusual for bathroom sinks, according to Better Homes & Gardens.

No matter how careful you are about preventing items from slipping down your sink, soap and residue builds up and slows down the drain over time,” BHG says. “And nobody wants a smelly drain, especially in small spaces like bathrooms and powder rooms. If left untreated, a blocked drain can clog the entire pipe, preventing water from draining properly.”

Your best bet at avoiding clogs is regular cleaning and maintenance of the drain in your bathroom sink. BHG says that you should clean the drain at least once a week: “Remove debris from the drain weekly. Remove pop-up stoppers or drain guards and discard any debris that has collected. Rinse and replace the stopper.

Should you encounter a tougher issue than hair, or should you get a clog, then BHG suggests you use a drain snake. A biodegradable, non-corrosive pipe cleaner, used monthly, will also help keep your drain clear and prevent bad smells.

“There are also natural cleaning products available in stores, but avoid using harsh drain cleaners or bleach, which can be harmful to both your pipes and your health,” BHG advises.

Of course, no matter how hard you try, sometimes clogs happen. If you do get a clog of any kind that you can’t clear by yourself, call Billy the Sunshine Plumber for help.
