March Sink Cleaning Tip

Don’t forget your drains and faucets! It only takes a few minutes to tackle these spots. You can soak them in vinegar and they brighten right up. CheckMark Pros Cleaning Services is located in Hebron, Kentucky.

Place a bag filled with vinegar over the end of your faucet and secure it with a rubber band.

pro tip for bathroom sink drains

Step 1–Put a towel in the cabinet under your drain to soak up anything that drips. Remove the retainer nut for the lifter rod. The lifter rod secures your drain plug inside the pipe. You can see the rod sticking horizontally out of the drain pipe. It should be threaded hand tight. Once the retainer nut is removed you can pull out the lifter rod.

Step 2–You will now be able to remove the drain plug on the topside of your sink. This baby needs some cleaning! You can soak this in the vinegar as well, but it will also need to be scrubbed with a brush.

Step 3–Scrub inside the drain hole as far as the toothbrush can reach.
*Don’t rinse the sink and drain until you have replaced the plug.

Yuck!

Let’s face it. Sink drains are disgusting.  You don’t really see what’s going on down there–or rather, should we say what is growing down there.  
Even in extremely clean homes, homeowners are appalled at what we find in some of the less noticeable spots . That’s why they are more than happy to entrust the cleanliness and sanitation of their home to our Professionals.  

"Many of our clients say they really look forward to our Pros coming to clean--Not just because of the way we make their home look, but because of the way we make their home feel." 

-Jill, CheckMark Pros Cleaning Manager

Why does it matter?

Keeping your drain clean improves the efficiency of your sink and it prolongs the life of your fixtures.  
Mineral build up on surfaces can be very destructive.  With a little bit of knowledge and some elbow grease it can all go away.  

Why Vinegar?

Vinegar is an acid.  But it is not a harsh acid like you might see in a super hero movie.  It is relatively gentle but extremely effective at removing soap scum, hard water deposits, and yes, even glue!

CheckMark Pros use vinegar throughout your home.  We mix a formula to give us a all purpose cleaner that is safe for everyone in the home and does a fantastic job.  Some people ask if their home will smell like vinegar.  And if you remember what it smells like when you die Easter eggs, we can understand why you would ask that question. 
The answer is no. 
One of the regular positive comments we receive from our clients is that they love the special blend of essential oils that we add to our formula to give your home that fresh, clean and sanitary aroma.  We even have several seasonal options from which our clients can choose.
