Bathroom sink clogging is one of the most common problems I encounter as a maintenance pro. Here is how to prevents clogs and the products that can help you.

  How to prevent bathroom sinks from clogging?

 Make sure that no hair gets inside the drain. This solution is next to impossible, especially for a rental property.

Use only liquid soap. Also hard to do for a rental but you can make a recommendation.

 Install drain strainers or drains with built-in strainers. This is the solution I would choose because even if you can’t do it by yourself, you will pay the plumber once and not call him every 2-3 months.
