Clogged Kitchen Sink

Clogged Kitchen Sink

Clogged Kitchen Sink? They happen for numerous reasons. If we’re being honest though, it’s usually due to what is being put into the drain. We’ve seen it all. It’s human nature to take a dish straight from the table to the sink and start the garbage disposal.

What most people don’t realize is that the food that goes into the drain never actually makes it out of the drain. It sits in the 20-40 ft of kitchen pipe until it transforms over the years into black goo. Yes, thick, black goo. It builds up to the point where water can no longer drain. You now have a clogged kitchen sink drain. 

Again, kitchen sinks can become clogged for numerous reasons but the most common is fats. Fats the are left on every dish, pot or pan when cooking any protein.  What can you do to prevent it? If you want to prevent a clogged kitchen sink, take the dish to the trash can first, then to the sink. Then again it could be your floor drain.

What are some other “No No’s” when it comes to kitchen sink drains?

  • No peelings of any kind, fruit or vegetable

  • No egg shells (they don’t sharpen the blades, I promise)

  • No mashed potatoes

  • No plastic of any kind (yes we’ve seen it too many times. It’s called a garbage disposal but that’s not what it’s capable of)

What are some other contributing factors to a Clogged Kitchen Sink?

  • Under the sink drain pipe configurations

  • Galvanized pipe. This material is much more prone to collecting that nasty build-up than other materials such as plastic pipe or cast iron pipe. 

  • Venting. Is your vent pipe an issue? Air has to flow in order for water to drain.
