Firstly, you should shut off the gold faucets, as this will cut off the water flow to the faucet. Doing so will prevent your kitchen from flooding, and it will also make your tap feel lighter. You can also place a bucket underneath the sink while working on this task. After the valves have been shut off, there might still be some air pressure in them. Let this air out for a few minutes and the faucet should feel lighter and more comfortable.
