Let Us Clear Your Clogged Kitchen Drain

Clearing Kitchen Drains in Albuquerque

The sink is undoubtedly one of the most critical aspects of a kitchen. Your kitchen is incomplete without a sink whose faucet runs perfectly and a drainage system that allows all the dirty water to run through.

Over time, however, your sink’s drain will start to lag or even get blocked altogether due to months of accumulated grease and food particles. You shouldn’t have to deal with the inconvenience of a clogged drain by yourself. Instead, consider hiring our professional plumbing service to help in unclogging your kitchen sink drain and bring it back to full function in a matter of minutes.

We at Wagner use specialized tools and equipment to effectively cut through the grease and eliminate the food debris so that your kitchen returns to excellent order and hygienic standards.

Common Issues With Kitchen Drains

Some of the most common problems that plague the modern kitchen drain include:

  • Clogged or lagging drain
  • Loose or jammed garbage disposal
  • Odors

DIY vs Professional Kitchen Drain Cleaning

Clogged drains are a common but truly annoying sight in many kitchens. Eager to get back to work, most people try all kinds of DIY fixes. However, not all DIY attempts are successful; some lead to broken drains, messy kitchens, the resurgence of the clogging in less than a few hours, or worse, a plumbing accident, leading to water spillage all over the house.

Not all clogs can be fixed with plungers and sticks. A professional kitchen drain cleaning service like Wagner has the experience, expertise, and equipment required to handle the most stubborn of clogs in your kitchen drain. Tools such as cameras and drain augers should disrupt the solids stopping the flow of water in your drains without destroying them. What’s more, attempts to clean your drains might lead to injuries. Leave this job to the pros, who are insured against such incidents and possess protective gear to minimize their risks.

Snaking Kitchen Drains

This unclogging method requires the use of a tool called a drain snake or hand auger. Snaking is a trusted method for cleaning out clogs in smaller drains such as the kitchen or the bathroom ones. Our plumbers use the hand auger to eliminate debris such as soap, food, and scum.

If you have encountered a clog that is so tough that a plunger or clothes hanger will not remove, you need to consider having your kitchen drain snaked. Your kitchen sink cannot be snaked from above, which is why you want to call Wagner. The procedure will require the dismantling of the piping. Our plumbers have the know-how that will give you the best results.

Tips for Maintaining Healthy Kitchen Drains

Garbage Disposals

Your garbage disposals require plenty of maintenance to keep the blades stainless and the piping clog-free. First, consider cleaning it at least once every two weeks. Remove any large debris carefully within the unit then pour a cup of vinegar to kill any bacteria that have accumulated within it. To freshen it, cut up lemon or lime then feed the chopped pieces into the disposal along with warm water.

As you use your garbage disposal, run cold water to help carry the cut-up waste off the blades. Avoid using hot water as fatty deposits will melt and stick onto the blades. After feeding the waste, run more water for ten seconds to ensure all the garbage is flushed away.

Flushing Drains

Debris such as food and scum can build up in the kitchen drain, causing it to have an unpleasant smell. To avoid this scenario, flushing your drain is a crucial part of maintenance. The first step is to remove the particles already sitting in the sink using a slight rinse. Proceed to clean the sink using hot water, dish soap, and a scouring pad; working along the sides of the basin and pushing the grime towards the drain. Rinse the basin, then proceed to flush the drain with a mixture of one part baking soda and two parts white vinegar. Start by pouring the baking soda down the drain, then slowly pour the vinegar along. After fifteen minutes, pour piping hot water down the drain to eliminate all remaining dirt.

Flushing Grease Down Drains

Pouring grease down the kitchen drain is never a good idea as clogging is bound to occur due to its high viscosity. However, if after a deep-frying session some ended up down your kitchen drain, you do not have to worry. Start by pouring a kettle of boiling water down the sink, which should soften the oil and reduce the risks of forming clogs. Proceed to pour half a cup of baking soda down the drain, followed slowly by a cup of white vinegar, then wait for ten minutes. The mixture should break up the grease to further reduce the clogging risk. Wind up by flushing the drain with a kettle of boiling water.
