Have you noticed when you brush your teeth at night that the sink takes a little longer to drain? That could be the first sign that your bathroom drain may require a plumbing repair. The next question to ask yourself is, have you noticed any other drains in the house being sluggish? If not the clog or blockage is probably within your bathroom sink’s drink line.
Let’s assume, for the moment, that the drainage problem is isolated to the bathroom drain line. There are some basic methods of unclogging that drain that you can try at home first. The most tried-and-true solution is plunging. This is the first step you should try whether it’s a bathroom sink or toilet clog.
Before plunging you want to run some hot water and check the strainer, if there is one. Clean out any debris or hair that was collected. If the water is still draining slowly then try plunging. You will want to prepare the area around the sink before using a plunger. Water could potentially spray all over the place so you will want to be prepared with towels or rags.
Depending on the size of your sink you will either want to use a flanged plunger or a regular plunger. The goal of using the plunger is to either get the clog to push through or to get the clog to come back up into the sink.
