Whether it’s a bathroom or kitchen sink, clogs do occur over time. At Sunshine Plumbing, Heating and Air, we understand that you need clear drains every day. There are several ways to avoid clogs and prevent them in the future.
Common clog culprits are hair, food particles, grease and foreign objects. Kitchen sinks, in particular, are more prone to clogs than any other plumbing. We need to remove the clogs through hydrojetting, mechanical snakes or simply applying industrial chemicals. Our goal is to keep your plumbing running smoothly to avoid more expensive repairs in the future.
Prevent sink clogs by throwing most food scraps away instead of pushing them into the garbage disposal. Avoid combing hair or using foreign objects above an open drain. Pour any oils or grease into a disposable container to throw in the trash, not down the drain.
Once a month, boil a pot of water on the stove. Slowly pour the boiling water down the kitchen and bathroom drains. This hot water removes some built-up sediment to make the pipes clean again. You’ll increase their lifespan between service calls with basic water.
For any questions about your sinks or plumbing, contact Sunshine Plumbing, Heating and Air out of Denver, CO. We are happy to answer your questions and evaluate your plumbing. Your comfort is our goal.
