Sometimes sinks will become clogged.
It happens to everyone, and there’s
really no getting around it. Whether it
is hair clogging a shower drain or bathroom
sink, or food particles clogging a kitchen
sink, a sink is likely to clog at one
point or another. We all know how frustrating
it can be to watch water building up.
However, clearing out a clogged sink in
our apartments in
Alachua, Florida is relatively easy,
and it will have lasting effects.
Here are a few ways you can quickly
clear up a clogged sink:
- If your kitchen sink seems to be
clogged, try turning on your garbage
disposal for a few seconds.
- Please do not use a foaming pipe
snake, such as Drano or Liquid Plumr.
These products can damage your pipes.
- Insert a mechanical snake into the
drain and run the length of it into
the pipe. Discount stores often carry
easy-to-use snakes like “Zip-It”
which can work well with a simple hair
clog. When the entirety of the snake
is inserted, pull it – and whatever
was causing the clog – out of
the pipe, and dispose of everything
- If nothing you try seems to help
unclog your sink, call the office here
at One 51 Place Apartment Homes. We’ll
be happy to send a maintenance technician
to your home to repair your sink problem.
Having sinks and drains that drain well
will certainly help you to live more peacefully,
and that is just what we want for our
residents at One 51 Place. If you would

floor plans we have available, feel free
