Kitchen Drain Cleaning

Kitchen sink drains can become clogged for many reasons. Think about all of the different things that go down these drains. We wash dirty dishes, allowing soap and detergent to leave a trail after being washed down the drain. We also get leftover grease and fat that are not easily washed away. Over time, as all of these different items go down kitchen sink drains, they can develop blockages and water cannot flow easily through your drains. However, there are a few things you can do to minimize clogs.

How To Prevent Drain Clogs

  • Limit Drain Waste - When cooking fatty food items that produce a lot of greases, do not dispose of them in your kitchen sink. Instead, pour excess grease into a coffee tin or container for later use. Coffee grounds are another item that shouldn't go down the drain. Instead, take those coffee grounds and use them to create mulch for an outdoor garden.
  • Hot Water Helps - Pouring hot water down the drain once a week helps keep the drains clear, as hot water aids in getting rid of grease deposits. Boil a pot of water, then add a drop of dish soap. Pour the liquid down the sink slowly to help dissolve any oil. Repeat the process more than once if the grease build-up is excessive.
  • Use Drain Covers - Installing a sink drain cover can help reduce the amount of large debris and leftover food buildup that goes down your pipes. Be sure to install a cover that has a strainer and rubber stopper to keep your drains as clear as possible.
  • Run Cold Water Occasionally - When utilizing the garbage disposal, it is better to have cold water running the entire time. This helps any grease in your disposal stay hard enough for the blades to break it up.
  • DIY Remedy - Take one cup of baking soda and pour it down the sink. Then pour half a cup of white vinegar in the drain and cover the drain opening. Allow the mixture to work in the drain for about thirty minutes then run hot water down. If your sink is severely clogged, you will need to repeat the mixture again.

Avoid Using Chemical Cleaners

When dealing with a clogged kitchen sink drain, one of the best tips we can offer homeowners is to avoid using a dangerous and very caustic chemical drain cleaner. The majority of the time, these drain cleaning chemicals do not resolve the blockage, and because of the dangers involved with using them, they simply are not the best option for homeowners dealing with a clogged drain.

How can I prevent clogged drains?

Never rinse cooking oils, fats, or food particles that expand (such as pasta or rice) down your kitchen sink. Periodically clean out hair caught in your shower drain.

Why are my pipes making loud noises?

If your pipes are rattling, bumping or vibrating, they are not secured into place correctly. This causes them to rattle or bump against the walls and floor as water flows through them. If the noises are bothering you, call AJ Danboise plumbers and we can secure your pipes properly and prevent the unnecessary sounds.

Another cause of banging pipes could be a water hammer. After you flush your toilet, the water is traveling so quickly that it makes the pipes rattle. You can install a water hammer arrestor at the shut off valve to compress and absorb the the rapidly moving water.

Main Drain Cleaning

All drains in your home eventually lead into your main sewer line, which connects to a city sewer line or septic tank. Main sewer lines typically clog because of tree roots looking for water. Roots break through the line and clog the drain. AJ Danboise plumbers are Farmington Hills drain clog remover specialists and can quickly diagnose the problem and offer you a number of options to resolve your issue.
