Kitchen Sink Clogs Most Often the Result of a Broken Garbage Disposal

The kitchen is the heart of your home; it’s where your family meets for every meal and enjoy each other’s company throughout the day. So, when something like a clog disrupts that every day flow, you are bound to be frustrated.

Having a clogged kitchen sink is not only annoying, but it’s unsanitary. All types of food and other debris get mashed together and back up into the sink that is normally used to wash dishes and hands.

In most instances, the reason for this clog has to do with your garbage disposal. Disposals, though they look like food-crushing monsters, are really much tamer than that and can’t handle everything we wish that it could.

To understand this more, it’d be good to know the most common items that clog up the kitchen sink so you’ll know what to put in the trash next time.

Common Reasons for Clogged Kitchen Sinks

  1. Grease: After you make bacon or other greasy foods, what do you do with the leftover liquid that’s in the pan? Probably pour it down the drain, right? Well, while the liquid form of grease won’t directly harm your drain, it will when it turns into a solid. As it solidifies, it sticks to the walls of the drain and catches other falling particles, eventually clogging it right up!
  2. Foreign objects: If you have kids in your home, having things be in places they aren’t supposed to is not an unusual occurrence. However, if these items get dropped into the kitchen sink, you’ll notice it stopping up.
  3. Food in the drain: This is probably, and unsurprisingly, the most common cause of clogged kitchen sinks. If there is any food that’s left on a plate prior to washing it, that food will stick to the drain. The biggest culprits of this are cereal flakes and soft bread particles.

An important thing to remember is that you shouldn’t try to clear a clogged sink by yourself. Garbage disposals are finicky, and you don’t want to hurt yourself or damage the unit. In addition, any harsh chemicals that you put down the drain could damage the pipes more and you don’t want to risk that, either.
