Every sink in your home is different. And while your bathroom sink doesn't jam or can break as much as your kitchen sink, it still needs to be repaired from time to time.
There are many reasons for your bathroom sink to require repair. And while you might think it is easier to just replace the entire bathroom sink, there are plenty of other options out there. For instance, if your bathroom sink has some minor defects or stains on it, all you really need is a good cleaning and polish. But if your bathroom sink is all clogged up, give Aspen Mountain Plumbing a call, and we will come to fix it up.
What makes up a bathroom sink
Bathroom sinks are watertight vessels with a hole in them. They are, for the majority of the time, installed in your bathroom. They are often made from porcelain, acrylic, certain metals or even plastic. Bathroom sinks come in all shapes and sizes. For example, the traditional bathroom sink with a single faucet is still prevalent in most homes. But now, people have been incorporating more and more double bathroom sinks into their bathrooms to accommodate everyone who wants to use the sink at the same time. The more complicated the bathroom sink, the harder it is to fix. So, if your sink has multiple holes and matching faucets, then it would be best to avoid DIY mistakes that could cost you even more money down the road.
Why do bathroom sinks get clogged
Bathroom sinks get clogged for many reasons. Sometimes the clog builds up over time, and sometimes the bathroom sink faces a sudden clog in the drain. Here are some of the most common bathroom sink clogs:
Dry Rot: when solid objects enter the drain and stay stuck in there too long.
Mildew: bacterias that invade the opening of the pipes under your sink.
Buildup: grease and other nasty things get mixed with water over time, forming a thick blob of gunk inside the drain.
Mineral deposits: caused by the water you use every day to wash your hands and face.
Hair: the most common reason for clogging up bathroom sinks. When too much hair enters your bathroom sink drain, it all gets stuck in your pipes.
What happens if I drop something in my bathroom sink
Dropping something into your bathroom sink is not the end of the world. If you think you dropped something in there, turn off your water and remove the drain cover to see if it's in there. If you do find something, take it out with a pair of pliers or by hand. If you can't reach it or see it, call Aspen Mountain Plumbing. We won't charge you much for this service, and we retrieve items dropped in the sink all of the time for Rock Springs, WY, homeowners.
Why does my bathroom sink smell like sewage
There are a variety of reasons why your bathroom sink might have an awful sewage smell. Each bathroom sink is attached to a sewage line, and it could be as simple as replacing the bathroom p-trap. Or as severe as a crack in your sewage line. Either way, when this problem arises, give Aspen Mountain Plumbing a call.
Why is my bathroom sink leaking?
Something is definitely wrong with your bathroom sink if it is not working the way it should, for instance, if it is constantly leaking. The most common causes of a sink leak are if the water keeps running even though you have turned off your faucet, then it's likely that there is some scale or hard water buildup in your bathroom sink faucet. A leak can also be caused by a crack in the pipe or sink. The best way to tell if your plumbing is leaking is by looking for water spots on the floor, or under your sink. If the leak is causing damage to your bathroom, turn the water off and call Aspen Mountain Plumbing.
