It is so frustrating to be washing dishes in the kitchen sink and have dirty water back up from the drain. Because most dishwashers drain into the same pipe as the sink, if there is a clog somewhere in the pipe, the dishwasher will fill up the sink and dirty water will spill over onto your floor. When this happens, turn off the dishwasher immediately and call the Lakewood plumbers at Roto-Rooter to clear the blockage.
If the drainage is just slow, you may be able to use liquid drain cleaner to get things moving again. However, overuse of products like these are bad for the pipes and can damage them. If the clog is not too far down the pipe, you may be able to dislodge it with a pipe snake. However, if you can’t get the problem fixed easily with these measures, call in a professional before you spend money on bigger and better tools.
Once the pipe has been cleared, it is helpful to use enzymes periodically to keep the water flowing through it and avoid future clogs. The culprit in kitchen drainage problems is usually the food disposal. While these are handy to have, if they aren’t used properly they can cause a lot of plumbing issues. Some communities have even considered banning them because of the trouble they cause in the city sewer system.
If you have a disposal, it is vital that you give everyone in the house a lesson on its proper use. Children have to be reminded frequently what can be put down it and what can’t. Never put potato peelings in it. Scrape dishes in the garbage. When you do use the disposer, run the water full blast the whole time it is going. Also, make sure to let it run until it is cleared completely. Don’t put bacon grease or oil down the sink. The oil combines with food particles, and other debris, to forms clogs. If grease is accidentally put down the sink, run hot water for a few minutes to help clear it.
