Why Is Your Kitchen Sink Blocked?

There are many reasons why your kitchen sink can get blocked. However, the number one cause of nasty kitchen sink drain blockages is grease. A build-up of grease usually comes from cooking oil and dishwashing detergents. 

The grease builds up slowly on the drainpipes’ walls. As time goes on, the diameter of the drainpipe decreases as the build-up grows and eventually causes a nasty blockage. MPJ plumbing technicians can help get rid of grease clogs. 

Another common cause of a blocked kitchen sink is food scraps going down the drain. This is a big problem with commercial kitchen sinks because of the huge amount of food scraps that find their way into the drain every day.  

Other reasons your kitchen sink drain can get blocked includes poor installation. If the quality of the workmanship is poor, the chances of the sink drain getting blocked is very high. For example, a kitchen sink that is too small could have been installed.  

These are the major factors that may contribute to kitchen sink blockages. You need a professional plumber to unblock the drains and provide a long-lasting solution. 

Signs Your Kitchen Sink Is Clogged 

You can easily read the signs that your kitchen sink is clogged even before a blockage occurs. Here are some of the most common signs of a blocked dink drain: 

Slow Draining 

When the kitchen sink drain is new, it drains pretty fast. Even when the basin is filled with water, it will take just a matter of seconds to empty it. If you notice the sink is draining very slowly, this is a sign of a clog that is blocking water from going through the drain. You need to call a professional plumber to fix and clear the clog before a complete blockage occurs. 

Bad Odours 

If there is a bad smell coming from the sink, this is another sign that you have a clog in the pipe. The smell must be coming from the organic matter that has built-up in the drain. In this case, it is likely that food scraps trapped by the clog are decaying. Call MPJ Plumbing technicians to clear the clog before the condition gets worse and more expensive to fix. 

Sounds in the Drain 

Have you been hearing gurgling sounds coming from your kitchen sink drain? Well, you need to call a plumber because this is a sign of a clogged sink drain. This sound comes from the air trapped inside the drain pipes. As it escapes through the trapped water, it makes gurgling sounds. If you have been hearing these sounds, you are days away from getting a total blockage.
