It can even be worse and disappointing if you are dealing with this issue alone as a single mother and when still you don’t have the right tools or anyone to help you solve this problem. If you try to leave the sink to settle so that the stinking water won’t come out anymore, and it continues to come out, then the situation gets worse. Even after trying various recommendations, the situation will still keep on, even when you ask for assistance from your family members as well as your friends. All in all, if you find yourself in this awful situation, read this article, and you will find some of the things that you can do to unblock your clogged sink.

1. Find yourself a plumber Toronto.
Other than trying to do it on your own, which is what many people do, it would be much easier and with no much stress if you can call a local plumber to come and unblock your sink. Although there are many ways to find a good plumber, the best one is the internet, you just google the name plumber, and your home area and the list of available plumbers in Toronto will appear together with their contacts, pick an ideal one for you and give them a call. You will be surprised to know that the plumbers charge very affordable fees, as opposed to what many people think.

2. Make use of a Plunger.

If you should try something to help you unblock your sink before you can call a plumber in Toronto, you should try a master plunger; the one that looks like an accordion. The reason you should use a master plunger is that it unblocks better than a standard round plunger would; although it can still help you if it is the only thing you have. Regardless their fancy names, these plungers are found in stores near you at a price of 10 dollars. Get the plunger to completely cover the drain hole, and then work it up and down in a rapid motion so that the suction will break the clog loose. Alternatively, if this doesn’t work, you might need to remove the pipe below the sink.

3. To avoid future problems get a garbage disposal.
You will not have this problem in future if you install a disposal garbage below the sink. This will help break large food particles by grinding it before it goes down the pipe, this will help to prevent your sink from blocking in the future, which will be benefit you.

With the above tips, you will never worry again about your sink.
