Generally sink repair in the areas we serve including Corona, Moreno Valley, Riverside, Ontario, Rancho Cucamonga and Redlands includes problems with slow draining and blockages or leaky pipes under the sink. We also get frequent calls about leaky faucets or faucets in kitchen and bathroom sinks that constantly drip even when they are in the fully off position.
Draining and Blockages
The most common causes of poor drainage or complete blockages in kitchen and bathroom sinks include grease, food items or other solid items being washed down the drain. In the kitchen sink this can include food, cleaning products, dirt, residue and even soap that can build up on other materials in the pipes. In the bathroom the most common types of sink repair issues from clogs are caused by the same types of products including lotions, soaps, creams, shaving products and hair going down the drain.
Using a screen over the drain can help prevent these items from clogging up the drain. Flushing very hot water down the drain on a regular basis can also help with removing some types of build-up.
Leaky Pipes and Faucets
When we get called out for sink repair that includes leaky pipes or faucets the repairs often require replacement parts. In faucets the washers, springs, rings and fittings can all cause leaks or prevent correct use of the tap if they are in poor condition. It is essential with these types of sink repair calls to use the correct product for the repair that is specific to that brand of faucets.
Leaky pipes under the sink, including the P-trap, often become damaged either through being knocked and hit or because of damage to the inside of the pipe itself. This can occur when chemicals or harsh commercial drain cleaners are poured down the drain and corrode the pipe and fittings.
We can provide 24/7 service for all your sink repair needs, regardless of the problem you are experiencing. Give us a call at Best Plumbing Services to schedule a repair call.
