Preventing Kitchen Sink Clogs

The drainpipe attached to your kitchen sink is designed to remove wastewater and tiny food particles from the home in a quick and efficient manner; if you misuse this fixture, however, you will soon find yourself calling your plumber in Jacksonville for repairs. Watch this video clip for a few tips on preventing kitchen sink clogs.

The best way to keep your kitchen sink from clogging is to be cognizant of the way you use it. While the trap in your sink helps you catch food scraps as you clear your plate after dinner, it is up to you to remember to empty the trap so that the scraps do not make it to the sewer. Never pour coffee grounds or grease down the drain, as these materials will quickly build up and cause clogs. Be sure to properly dispose of your food scraps; consider recycling or composting them.
