Is your Kitchen Sink Clogged?

Is your kitchen sink clogged? Kitchen sinks can become clogged by a number of things such as tree roots in your pipes or putting coffee grounds in the drain (which you shouldn’t do). Here are some home remedies to fix the clog:

  • Boiling water: Debris can get stuck to the side of your drain and cause a clog. Boiling water will help to remove the debris along. 
  • Baking soda and vinegar: This is an alternative to using a store bought drain cleaner. The baking soda and vinegar will break down the debris in the drain.
  • Clean the P-trap: Your P-trap (the elbow-shaped pipe) may be clogged with food or debris causing your sink to be clogged. Place a bucket under the pipe and remove the P-trap. Clean the pipes and put the P-trap back on. 

If these remedies don’t work, the clog may be more severe. Call us today at (716) 803-4065.
