When you cook or prepare meals for your family in the kitchen, you probably use the garbage disposal in the sink to grind up and eliminate scraps and other waste. But if you accidentally flush allow something that’s too large or coarse down the drain, it can lead to a clogged kitchen sink. Because there is so much food that goes down the sink in this room of the home, a clog will quickly lead to strong and unpleasant odors. These bad smells can seep to other rooms in your home and lead to bacteria growth and other issues. You can try using a plunger to clear the clog, but if this doesn’t take care of the problem, give us a call at Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® of Hendersonville to clear the clogged kitchen sink in your Asheville, North Carolina home.
You can also take some precautions to prevent a clogged kitchen sink at your home. Certain things like eggshells, vegetable peelings, and onion skins are difficult to grind up completely, so they are more likely to lead to clogs. You should also never put oils, grease, or fats down your kitchen sink. Even if they are liquid when you put them down the drain, they will solidify when they cool down and cause a clog. You may also want to flush boiling water and baking soda down the drain every few weeks to eliminate odors and keep the drain flowing smoothly. Our experienced plumbers are also available to clear your clogged kitchen sink quickly and efficiently, any time you need us.
