Clogged Sink Drain

We are experts in clearing pipes and getting bathroom or kitchen sinks to run freely! Our plumbers have the tools and experience necessary to quickly and effectively clear any clogged sink drain.
Grease Causes Clogged Sink Drain
The plumber determined that the clog had passed the kitchen drain P-trap. To unclog the kitchen drain properly, the plumber had to open the clean-out access under the sink. Clean-out access are designed for this purpose, to allow plumbers to access pipes for drain cleaning maintenance. Clean-out access points are generally by kitchen sinks or outside along the sewer line but not by a bathroom sink or tub.
Drain Cleaning Plumbing Services
Our plumber power rodded the kitchen sink drain to begin the removal of the clogged sink drain. Because the clog was made of grease and food particles, it was difficult to clear. Grease is one of the common causes of a kitchen sink clog. When hot grease cools, it solidifies and can adhere to the sides of pipes, causing a blockage in your plumbing system. This blockage can lead to backups, overflows, and leaks.
Kitchen Drain Cleaning Experts
To clear the clogged sink, we had to power-rod several times. This clog was close to 22 feet from the kitchen sinks clean-out access. Our plumber ran the machine another 20 feet down the kitchen drain line to ensure that he reached a larger diameter pipe with the machine. This ensures that whatever was blocking the pipe has gone into a larger pipe and will not clog again. To prevent future clogs, we recommend routine professional drain cleaning!
