Overcoming Common Problems with Bathroom Sinks
Whether you’re brushing your teeth before bed, washing your hands after using the toilet or getting ready for work in the morning, you and your loved one’s use your bathroom sinks dozens of times a day. When they stop working correctly, it can cause a lot of inconvenience and frustration. At Mr. Rooter of Atlanta, we’re proud to provide local residential and commercial clients with a wide range of professional plumbing services. We’ve seen our fair share of bathroom sink issues, and we want to help you solve your problem. Here are some of the most common sink hassles and tips for what you can do about it.
One of the most irritating bathroom sink challenges is bad odors coming from the drains or faucet. There are many possible sources to the problem. If the foul smells are coming from a sink that doesn’t get used very often, it might just have a dry trap. Simply running water and cleaning the drain might give your nose a break. Unfortunately, in some circumstances, bad smells is an indication of a sewer line issue, which means you may have a more sever underlying plumbing problem. If that’s the case, it’s best to get help from a certified plumber who can properly diagnose and repair the situation.
Another common bathroom battle is clogged drains. This issue can create major hurdles, because the sink will fill with water fast, and drain very slowly or not at all. No one wants to bail water into the toilet every time they wash their hands. For small clogs that are near the surface of the drain, a simple sink plunger or manual snake can usually free the blockage. If you try both techniques and are still running into trouble, then there’s a chance you have a large clog further down the pipe, or you could be dealing with root growth. In such circumstances, you’ll need a professional clog removal or hydro jetting service.
Leaky faucets and pipes can bring severe consequences, including expensive utility bills, water damage, mold growth and more. Dripping faucets are usually noticeable, thanks to their repetitive noises. However, leaks that happen beneath the sink can go unnoticed for months or even years. Avoid unnecessary health risks and renovation costs by investing in an inspection or leak repair as soon as possible.
