A Lesson In Clogged Drains

1 Hour Service for Plumbing in NYC and Manhattan

When it comes to kitchen plumbing, unfortunately there are common problems. Two of the most common problems in kitchen piping are leaks and clogs. These problems occur as a result of a build up of debris and grease. What most people don't know is that these aren't hard fixes, and sometime it can be taken care of D.I.Y. The easier of the two fixes is clogs, because for leaks you have to first determine where it is coming from, as it could be coming from multiple sources. Let's talk about removing the pesky, clogged drain.

A Way to Removing Clogs

If you haven't taken a close look at the piping under your sink, let me tell you that you will find a U-shaped pipe. With that being said, no matter how careful you are with what food gets in your sink and what gets past the food trap you are likely to suffer from a clogged kitchen sink at some point in your life. The U-shaped pipe makes it rather easy for things to get caught, leading to a stuff-up. Chemicals can work sometimes, but some people do not like putting corroding materials down their drains. You can instead make a at home remedy by measuring out a half-cup baking soda and pouring it down the drain. Follow that with one-half cup white vinegar and do the same. The fizzing between the two ingredients should loosen some clogs. The final step is adding boiling water too the mix. You may want to repeat this a few times, but if you don't see improvement then the problem might be out of your hands.

Next you would need to introduce plumbing tools to the mix, like a plumbing snake. This tool is not cheap, and the one that are inexpensive don't work so well. The higher-end machines also require some skill, because there are more features to be use. The right plumber will have the right tools and they will know how to use them properly.  If you are sick of your sinks draining slowly, and nothing you've tried at home works, then call us today and see how we can help. We have the tools and we have the talent. We do great plumbing in NYC.
