Whether the drain in your kitchen or bathroom is clogged, Coastal Plumbing of Brickell Inc has just the solution! We know how unpleasant it can be to yank out a clump of hair, soap, and toothpaste from your shower drain, and the problem may be deeper than you can see from the surface of your tub.
The same concept applies to your kitchen sink. Perhaps your garbage disposal does not appear to be performing properly, and you are noticing the water does not drain when you run the sink. Often times, grease or foods that do not dissolve tend to stick onto pipe walls, which causes the clogging. Some foods that most commonly cause such blockage include:
- Egg Shells: You may try to use drain cleaners in order to rid your pipes of food. Egg shell pieces however, will latch onto whatever else is attached to the walls of pipes, and will not dissolve with the use of regular drain cleaners.
- Coffee Grounds: When combined with grease and other materials that exist in your drain, coffee grounds to not facilitate a smooth draining process, as many people may think. In fact, coffee grounds may react with the other substances and worsen the issue!
- Pasta or Rice: These types of carbohydrates expand, as they absorb water. They are also starchy, so they stick to pipe walls. The combination of sticky and spongy characteristics make for the ultimate clogging food.
- Potatoes: This is also an extremely starchy food that will grab onto pipe walls and other moving parts.
Of course, there are many other substances that can easily accumulate and result in the clogging of your drain. The build-up inside your drain is not only frustrating from a functional aspect, but also poses a threat to your health. Over time, the residue can lead to the formation of mold and mildew, which can cause various allergic reactions. Avoid such serious problems by calling the professionals at Coastal Plumbing today.
