Sink clogs are one of the most common sink repair calls we get. There are a number of things that can result in clogged sinks. In the bathroom, clumps of soap, hair, and dirt can get trapped on the sink stopper or build up in the P-trap, blocking water from flowing through and then out of the drain. In the kitchen, soap, grease, and food particles can build up along the walls of your pipes, eventually getting large enough that they block water flow.
Almost everyone has had to deal with a leaky sink at one point in their lives—a sink that won’t stop dripping no matter how hard you try to turn it off. And let’s face it—faucets are some of the most used appliances in your home, so they’re BOUND to leak at some point!
Fortunately, faucet repair or replacement is no problem for the sink repair experts at James A. Wheat & Sons. Call us as soon as you notice that you have a leaky faucet—the constant dripping can corrode fixtures, stain sink bowls, and waste lots of water.
If the water pressure in a few of your sinks is wonky while others are normal, there could be a couple things wrong: you may have faulty aerators, rotting pipes or other plumbing issues. If you’re experiencing strange water pressure issues, call James A. Wheat & Sons for a quick diagnostic—the problem may be a quick fix or it may require some more detailed plumbing work.
Bad odors from sinks are another fairly common occurrence, and fixing the problem ranges from easy to slightly complicated.
If you’re getting bad odors from your sink as a result of a dried-up P-trap, run the faucet for about 30 seconds to fill it back up. If it’s a faucet that you don’t use very often, make sure you run it periodically so the trap doesn’t dry out.
If this doesn’t work, the bad odors may be the result of a bacterial bio-film developing in your pipes. Bacteria from the bio-film are released into the air when you run your sink, resulting in a foul odor. If this is the case, call James A. Wheat & Sons! Our expert plumbers can clean out your drains so you won’t have to deal with the nasty smells.
Don’t let busted sinks slow you down. If you need sink repair or replacements in Maryland or Washington, DC, schedule an appointment with our experienced plumbers today.
