How to Unblock Kitchen Sink in 3 easy steps.

We know blocked drains can be a nightmare, so we’ve put together a quick guide to help you unblock kitchen sink in 3 easy steps.

1 – Try Plunging

The obvious first step would be to try and plunge the drain using an appropriate plunger. If the drain blockage is only effecting one drain in your house, for example just your kitchen sink. Then plunging it might do the trick, as the blockage is likely to be close to the appliance. But if the issue is further down the pipework, you might require specialist drainage tools, and it might just be best to call a specialist.

2 – Try Acid.. or even Coca-cola…

Specalist acid such as One Shot is great to use for drain blockage but please be careful, its will burn your skin… And also your pipework if too muh is poured and left to settle on a pipe. When pouring acid down your drain, its best to pour small bits at a time, leave it for a few minutes and then rinse it thoroughly with clean water. Coke might do the trick… but nothing beats Acid.
