“It’s just the grossest, most disgusting thing,” Elizabeth said. “You make a meal, you want to clean up, and the kitchen sink just won’t drain. I can’t figure out why this keeps happening. It takes forever for the water to go out, and when it’s sitting in there, it stinks so bad. Afterward – I don’t even want to talk about it. I just want my sink to stop clogging.”
Kitchen sink clogs are one of the most common reasons people call their NYC plumber. There are several reasons why kitchen sinks clog, and the vast majority of them have to do with the materials that find their way down the drain as we make and clean up after meals. When we wash fruits and vegetables, dirt, wax and grit go down the drain with the water. Food scraps, grease and other residue also go down the drain as we wash off dishes and cooking pots. All of this material can accumulate in kitchen drain pipes, to the point where it stops water from leaving your sink in a timely fashion. Worst of off, because much of this material is organic, it slowly rots away, which produces a horrible odor.
You can try to address the clog with household drain cleaners, but these products tend to promise a lot and deliver very little. To eliminate a persistent kitchen clog and get rid of the nasty drain smell, call your NYC plumber. Using specialized equipment, your NYC plumber will remove the obstructive material, allowing the water to flow freely once again!
