Fixing Overflowed Sinks in Dallas

When a sink overflows, it can turn into a large problem rather quickly. Water always has the potential to pool. Whatever pooling water saturates, it damages. It can seep into flooring and carpeting. While an overflowing sink won’t come with biohazards to worry about as an overflowing toilet will, an overflowed sink is still a big deal. The last thing you should do is delay getting that sink fixed.

Overflowed Sink Repair

The first problem that must be taken care of when it comes to an overflowed sink is finding what caused the sink to overflow in the first place.

We can clear up the buildup or repair and/or replace aging components, allowing your sink to drain quickly once again. Not only will we repair your sink fully, but we’ll also give you tips to prevent an overflow in the future.

Overflowed Sink Cleanup

While sink overflows aren’t as dangerous as toilet overflows - the threat of biohazard contamination is much lower - the standing water in your kitchen and the rest of your property must be cleaned up and dried as soon as possible. Otherwise, your property will become a breeding ground for mold and mildew. Every nook and cranny must be checked for water saturation and dried out if need be, and our team never cuts any corners when it comes to restoration work. We will check every inch of the area, dry things out, and repair and replace damaged fixtures and components as necessary. We can even assist if you need mold remediation. We want to get your life back to normal, not give you a reason to worry about more repair work down the road.

Common Causes of Sink Overflows

When it comes to sinks, overflows can occur both due to normal use and improper use. For instance, over time, food particles from doing dishes and hair that falls off can build up and cause a slow-running or clogged drain. This can lead to an overflow just from using your sink. However, some sink overflows occur due to user error. Trying to flush things down the sink drain that shouldn’t go down it, like cooking grease and gristle, can also cause clogs. If you have a garbage disposal, you have an additional worry, as it can also cause a problem with even normal use.

As you can see, there are plenty of things that can cause a sink to overflow. No matter what the cause is, Texas Disaster Restoration is the team to call in the Metroplex.

Frequently Asked Questions About Sink Overflow Cleanup

1Why do I need a professional to handle an overflowing sink? Won’t drain cleaner be sufficient?
If you add drain cleaner to an overflowing sink, all the drain cleaner will do is become diluted in the standing water, adding harsh chemicals to the dirty water. Even if a plunger clears the clog, you may only have a temporary fix. Plus, there’s still the matter of all the water that’s overflowed into your kitchen or bathroom, affecting the flooring and possibly more of your property. Cleaning up, repairing the sink, and fixing the damage left behind by an overflowing sink is a multi-step job best left to the experts.
2Why does my sink make a gurgling noise?
When a sink clogs, air becomes trapped. When air tries to force its way through the standing water, it makes that gurgling sound. A gurgling sink is a sign that something is going wrong.
3Why is my kitchen sink not equipped with an overflow?
That answer is simple: U.S. plumbing codes typically do not require overflows on sinks due to sanitary concerns. While European-made sinks have an overflow designed in the cleanout for easy access, American-made sinks do not.
