Your kitchen is among the most crucial rooms in your home. It is also probably the busiest part of your house, which is especially true if your family enjoys cooking and eating. This means that your kitchen sink is used frequently, thus making it susceptible to damages and leaks among other plumbing problems. To ensure that the operations in your kitchen are running smoothly, you should be able to diagnose common kitchen plumbing problems and know how to avoid them. This will also help you to determine when it’s time to contact us if needed.
The most common kitchen plumbing problems are clogged drains. This is attributable to the fact that most people use their drain as a garbage disposal by rinsing huge chunks of food and grease off their dishes, and consequently sending them down the drain. This leads to the ultimate accumulation of garbage, eventually clogging your drain. Prevent these problems from occurring by being conscious of the material going into your drains. Even if you have a garbage disposal, avoid placing large amount of food and grease down the drains.
While your first reaction may be to use a drain cleaner, you should note that this is not always the best solution. It is safer to clear your drain using a pipe snake. In the event that this proves ineffective, you should probably call us the pipes may need to be removed and cleaned thoroughly.
Another common problem is leaky faucets. Dripping faucets could lead to substantial water wastage, forcing you to pay elevated water bills.
