Drain repair for your kitchen and bathroom

Have you ever had problems with your kitchen or bathroom sink? Have your drains ever become clogged to the point where they don’t drain any water? When you have sink drainage problems, there are a variety of ways to fix and unclog your pipes. Depending on what is clogging your pipes, you may also need to replace the traps and the main line. Hopefully, the tips and suggestions below will help you get your bathroom and kitchen sinks working properly again.

There are a variety of degrees of blockages in the drainage system which, of course, can be caused by a number of things including food, materials, debris, and other substances that are not meant to be drained. One of the best ways to prevent your kitchen drain from clogging in the future is to have a trained plumber install a garbage disposal system. The garbage disposal can usually grind anything you throw into it, which prevents large chunks of food from falling into the sink.

If the water stops draining in your kitchen or bathroom, you can get a simple solution at Wal-Mart or a grocery store near you. The best solutions will help dissolve and break down food particles and grease buildup in your drain pipes.

Another home remedy to unclog the bathtub and sinks is to sprinkle them with a little baking powder. About a cup or just a little less will suffice. After adding the baking powder, the next step is to add about 1/3 cup of vinegar and then pour in some very hot water, about 1/2 cup. Let it sit in the pipe for about 30-35 minutes and then run very hot water down the drain for about 60 seconds.

In addition to adding a garbage disposal to prevent clogging, you can also run hot water down your drains every other day. So every two to three days turn on the hot water in your tubs and sinks for about a minute or two. This will help prevent pipes from clogging and keep odors to a minimum.

One of the best ways to tell that your drain is clogged is that the water starts to run very slowly. Of course, before that happens, you may notice a strange smell or smell due to food that is moldy and accumulated inside the pipes. It won’t be long after you notice the odors and the water will stop draining properly, which means it’s time to do the baking powder/solution mixing steps!

Good luck fixing and repairing your drainage systems for your kitchen and bathrooms!
