Clearing Your Blocked Sink or Basin

There are many ways to try and clear a blocked sink. Methods like running hot water, using a plunger, removing the u-bend beneath the sink, and pouring chemical products could all shift a minor blockage. However, not everyone wants to get their hands dirty or even feels safe doing so. Some methods come with their own risks, and when used improperly, store-bought drain cleaners can even damage your property’s pipes.

Whether you’d rather avoid DIY clearance work or have tried in vain to unblock your sink, we’re ready to help. Our engineers unblock kitchen sinks across London and many parts of the Home Counties. We even have experts available who respond to emergency callouts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Customer reviews

  • Explained the problem, and didn't try to up sell me expensive work. A simple fix with a plunger was all that was required. He was friendly, helpful and honest. Would use Aspect again based on my experience.

  • We had a drainage problem in our kitchen that was fairly bad. The tradesman was quick, efficient and to the point. Didn't take too long to do which made me feel at ease and gave some good advice too!

  • Excellent service. I called this morning at 8am and a technician was out by 12:30. Reece was polite and friendly and sorted out the clogged drain in no time flat. Would absolutely call Aspect again and recommend them highly.

Why your sink or basin blocks up

We’re used to finding all sorts of items lodged in sinks and wash basins. Here are some products that you definitely shouldn’t throw down there:

  • Oils, grease and solid food waste
  • Plastic or paper drinking straws
  • Toothpicks and wooden skewers
  • Cotton buds and dental floss
  • Tissues and kitchen paper
  • Pieces of plastic and other material

Unless it’s a liquid that won’t harden in the pipe, you should avoid throwing anything down the kitchen sink. It’s also worth investing in a drain screen too. This will catch large chunks of food and prevent items from falling into the plughole.
