Signs of a Kitchen Clogged Drain
Even if you have a garbage disposal, not everything is capable of safely going down your drain. Oils, fats, egg shells, fibrous vegetables, for example, are very hazardous to your pipes. Some of these substances will coagulate and harden while others will clump and attract other debris. Though not all clogs can be prevented, knowing the warning signs of a backup can prevent messy blockages. Here are the top signs that your kitchen drain is clogging:
- Foul odors
- Unusual sounds
- Standing water
- Slow draining
If you’ve noticed any of the above signs, reach out to the plumbing contractors at Forbes Plumbing. We use state-of-the-art equipment and effective techniques to clear clogged kitchen drains.
How to Unclog a Kitchen Sink
Oftentimes, a drain snake can clear a sink clog. However, snaking and cabling are not long-term solutions, especially if your kitchen drains are regularly backing up. If the clog is deep or severe, we may use hydro jetting to cut through the backup and clear your pipes out for good. This method uses pressurized water to remove not only the blockage, but any buildup that is restricting water flow in your drains. Not only is hydro jetting fast and very effective, but it is safe even on older pipes, so you don’t have to worry about damaging your plumbing while removing a backup. To really determine the severity of the clog, our skilled technicians will use video inspection equipment to evaluate the line and locate the blockage.
