We know how important your kitchen is–it’s the center of your home! But what happens when your kitchen drains are clogged? At Pacific Plumbing & Drain, we are available to diagnose and fix your drain cleaning problems as soon as they arise, at affordable rates.
What causes clogged kitchen drains?
Food may belong in kitchens, but it does not belong in your kitchen drains! Even if you have a garbage disposal, there are only certain items that should go in your kitchen sink drain. Here are some items that can clog kitchen drains:
- Coffee grounds
- Fruit and vegetable peels
- Starches, like potatoes
- Egg shells
Use a kitchen drain strainer to catch anything on the way down. Throw it out in the trash, and you’re done! You’ll maintain clean and clear kitchen drains.
How do you unclog drains?
It really depends on the location of the drain, the underlying pipe structure, where the clog is, and what the clog might be. We use a combination of the methods below:
- Hydro Jetting
- Rooter services
- Video Inspections
We prefer to use mechanical methods for very simple reasons: they don’t cause damage to the pipes, and they don’t involve excess chemicals in your plumbing system. A lot of the over-the-counter plumbing drain cleaners that you see are just too harsh–and unnecessary!
Plumbers are professionals, and we know exactly how to unclog your kitchen drains. We can use a video inspection to pinpoint the exact location of the clog, use mechanical methods to dislodge it, and make sure it’s gone for good.
