Cleaning the Drain After Celebrating | Roto-Rooter Chicago

KitchenGo! Cubs! Go! .

For the first time since 1945, the Cubs were in the World Series. Fans celebrated good plays, home runs, and flying the W.

Postseason baseball lasts for a few weeks and fans had plenty of opportunities to hold or attend viewing parties. But with all of the food and drinks that were consumed, along with the scraps that are tossed, there's a good chance sinks and drains will become clogged.

After the World Series is over, here are some tips to unclog your kitchen sink drains, assuming the issue isn't with the garbage disposer.

Super easy

The best news is cleaning your sink is easy, and you won't need to set aside a large amount of time, so you can catch every game on time.

To get started, you'll first want to try unclogging the sink with a plunger. All it takes is 20 seconds to hopefully fix the issue.

Cleaning may be required

If the plunger didn't do the trick, then you may need to clean the P-trap, which usually gets clogged because of large amounts of grease or stringy food. You'll first need to disassemble it to start cleaning.

And if the sink still remains clogged, try snaking the line. Once the drain is open, pour ½ a cup of white vinegar and ½ cup of baking soda.

But if your sink is still clogged, call the professionals at your local Chicago Roto-Rooter to help diagnose the issue.
