How to deal with a smelly sink

Have you ever been washing your hands or perhaps loading up your sink and had an unpleasant smell rising up from your plughole? Unfortunately we have all been there at one point or another and it is not a nice experience. It is even more embarrassing if it is someone else who notices the aromas rising from your sink.

There are a few reasons as to why your sink might be starting to smell and most often this is to do with a blockage that means that the water can not flow freely. Stagnant water is one of the worst culprits for creating unbearable smells. It can be incredibly difficult to find out what is causing your drain blockage and so using a Drainage Cleaning such as Wilkinson ENV is a good idea as it allows them to investigate and hopefully solve the problem for you.

One of the best ways that you can help to prevent horrible odours from coming from your sink is to be mindful of what items you place in them and ensuring that fats, oils and hair do not get flushed down the drains. You can do this by thinking about using a mesh or catcher that is placed over your plughole to prevent food and other items from reaching the plughole. They are relatively easy to use and inexpensive, but they could save you lots of money in the future should they cause a large blockage in your pipes.
