Do I Need Kitchen Drain Cleaning?

This question is relatively simple, but your situation can be drastically different from another clogged drain. We generally ask two questions when people need to know if they require professional services:

  • Is your kitchen drain completely obstructed?
  • Is there any sign of leaking under the sink, or along another pipe that is connected?

If you answered yes to both questions, you probably need a professional plumber. In the case of leaking or other signs of damage, you may need D & F’s plumbing emergency services!

Clogged Kitchen Sink

A slow draining kitchen sink is typically caused by what is being put down the drain. Hair, grease, fats, and other food remnants can get stuck in the pipe, sometimes in the U-bend itself.

Clogged Garbage Disposal

Grease, egg shells, fibrous vegetable and fruit peels, bones, and coffee grinds should never be put down the drain for the disposal to grind up, especially all at once! Grease can coat the inside of your disposal and make other food particles stick to the sides, gradually building up until you have a completely clogged kitchen drain. Garbage disposals are not meant to replace compost bins or trash bins.

Clogged Dishwasher Drain

It’s not something people think about often, but a clogged dishwasher drain can wreak havoc on your kitchen plumbing. Dishwasher drains can accumulate pieces of food, hair, grease, and even soap deposits over the years. If you’ve been noticing your dishes aren’t as clean, or your dishwasher isn’t draining at all, you may have a clogged dishwasher drain.

Using Chemicals to Clear a Clog

We know how tempting it is to use over-the-counter solutions–we don’t blame you for choosing a $5 answer! However–it’s not a long-term solution, and it is most definitely causing damage to your pipes.

Kitchen drain cleaners can cause more damage in two ways: they can push the clog deeper into your plumbing system, potentially stopping up a major pipe, and they can carve away the lining of your pipes. Have you ever noticed that plumbers don’t use these chemicals? It’s because we know they typically make the clog worse, and we also have seen first-hand how much damage they can cause!
