Signs of Clogs
Besides water standing in the sink or taking its time to drain, kitchen sink clogs usually give themselves away by smell. Food material gets caught in the pipe, and over time, as it decays will begin to smell. Kitchen sink clogs are most commonly caused by grease, coffee grounds, and food scraps. Grease and coffee grounds, especially, need to be disposed of in the trash. Malfunctioning garbage disposals can also cause kitchen sinks to clog. Take care of what you put down the garbage disposal. Some materials, like ground-up eggshells, have a hard time flushing down the system. For bathroom sinks, hair is one of the main causes of clogs.
With any clogged sink, if you try to clear the clog yourself, use a plunger instead of liquid drain cleaner. While effective, these cleaners can in some instances actually make clogs worse, and repeated use can damage pipes. You may only loosen the clog and send it deeper into the system. Other solutions like baking soda and vinegar rinsed through the pipe with hot water may be effective, especially for smaller clogs. But, if you have a major clog or want to ensure the clog is cleared effectively, call our clogged drain experts at (310) 901-2120. We are also available after hours for any emergency situations.
