How To Avoid Most Kitchen Sink Stoppages

Overall, plumbers probably get more calls to open clogged drains than any other service. The most often clogged drain is the kitchen sink. Kitchen sink stoppages are usually caused by liquid fats, emulsified by warm soapy dishwater and then carried through the drain pipes. As the water gets colder it proceeds down the drain and leaves the fatty deposits along the drain line. A film of grease forms on the pipe wall and so on. Coffee grounds, egg shells, etc. add to this accumulation layer until the pipe becomes completely clogged. Not only that, but buildup often makes drain pipes smell awful. Here are some recommendations in order to minimize Kitchen sink clogs and back ups.

1. Garbage Disposer

If you have a garbage disposer use it sparingly. This means don’t stuff large amounts of food all at once. Just a little at a time, and keep the water running, to help flush the particles down the line.

2. Don't put down the drain

Do not let egg shells, stringy vegetables, and potato peals go down the drain. They are the number one cause of a kitchen sink back-up, when the clog is located in the pipes under the sink.

3. Dishwasher

When using a dishwasher, wipe your dishes thoroughly before you put them inside the machine. This appliance is a silent cause of kitchen sink back ups.

4. Grease

Pour excess grease into a tin can, not down the sink drain. Even with hot water, grease will solidify and stick to the walls of the piping. Grease is the number 1 cause of kitchen sink back-ups, when the blockage is down the line.

5. Vinegar

Periodically fill your kitchen sink with hot water mixed with vinegar, pull the plug and let it drain. Vinegar is a great cleaning solution. It helps to break down deposits, and is really good at killing bacteria.

6. Ice cubes

Every once in a while, grab a handful of ice cubes and grind them in your garbage disposer along with cold water. The ice cubes will actually help sharpen the blades inside the disposer.
