  • 2. Do-It-Yourself Drain Cleaning Are you suffering from clogged sink? Does the water go down too slow after running it for a short time? It that’s the case, then you definitely has to consider a drain cleaning service. Just before you do this, there few things that you can do on your own:  First, there are a lot of cleaners that can be purchased at your local hardware store that will often do the trick.  If it does not work, you could perform some minor plumbing on your own by looking underneath the sink. However, if this still does not remove the clog, professional help is definitely needed. Over-The-Counter Cleaners If your sink is clogged, shopping for over-the-counter drain cleaning products is one great solution to do. Gel cleaners are the most effective one but these cleaning agents comes in different forms. You will just pour the gel down your sink, allow it to stand there for a while, and then rinse with hot water. The chemicals that these cleaners have eat away the clog inside your pipes, and the water flushes them away. This is an extremely effective and economical solution for minor clogs. Take a Look under Your Sink If the over-the-counter drain cleaning product is not effective, then you might have to perform some amateur plumbing to repair your clog. If you look beneath your sink, you will see what is known as a "u-pipe." This u-shaped piece of tube has fittings on each side that may be easily unscrewed with a pair of adjustable pliers or a wrench. Simply remove the u-pipe, and what is inside. Most of the time, this is where your clog will be located. You can usually make use of a wire hanger or brush to get rid of

Call an Expert If neither of those options works, you will probably have to call a drain cleaning professional. Plumber will have the ability to remove your clog when the abovementioned options fail to work. Oftentimes, this will simply involve the using a plumbing snake - long wiry equipment that is pushed through your pipes and that has hooks at the end part for pulling out clogs. This is really an easy solution, but you will need an expert to do it for you. There is a lot of do-it-yourself drain cleaning solutions, but in many cases you will need the help of a professional.
