There are ways to minimize family-caused clogs. Watch what you and your family put down the kitchen sink. You have probably heard the saying that oil and water don’t mix. Clogged kitchen sinks can occur when oil, grease, fat, and other fatty acids (lipids) are poured down the drain. Because they separate from water, vegetable oil, bacon grease, etc. stick to the sides of pipes and attract other food waste, which eventually blocks the flow.
Foods that expand or thicken in water, including pasta, rice, and oatmeal, can contribute to a clogged kitchen sink in your Denver home. Solid food waste, like eggshells, coffee grounds, and bones, can also be problematic.
A clogged kitchen sink can have its roots far from your kitchen, which is why Go Direct uses a sewer camera when inspecting sewer lines in your Denver area home. While you see the backup in your sink, the blockages can be formed due to tree roots, scale buildup inside a pipe, or damage to your sewer lines underground.
After identifying the source of the clogged kitchen sink with the sewer camera, Go Direct will recommend the best solution. It can be as simple as cleaning out the clog with a sewer snake. For buildup on sewer line walls, we may recommend sewer jetting. For damage to your sewer lines, we may recommend sewer line repair or replacement.
Your garbage disposal can also clog if you put coffee grounds, eggshells, celery, banana peels, grease, pasta, fruit pits, and other fibrous or greasy items in it. If you have a garden, composting food waste and paper products can enrich your soil and make plants thrive.
