Clear Clogged Drain in Your Kitchen Sink
The kitchen sink may start to drain slowly as the pipes become clogged with food debris, grease and soap. While your drain opening may look fine, when you look deeper you will see gummy deposits lining the drain pipes. In hard water areas minerals build up creating craggy surface area that traps and holds anything that goes down the drain. Using home remedies such as vinegar and baking soda can only do so much to remove these stubborn blockages and help to clear clogged drain.
Some kitchen sinks have an added contributor to the clogged drain issue. For example, many people are not aware of the fact that their kitchen sink garbage disposal unit may be clogging up the drain. Nearly 70% of clogged kitchen sink issues are related to garbage disposal units.

Clean Out Drain Without Chemicals
You could go to the hardware store and get a chemical drain cleaner to clean your drains but harsh chemicals are not only hard on pipes, they are also not good for the environment. There are better ways of cleaning out drains and getting them to run smoothly without the use of chemicals. People have used home remedies like baking soda and vinegar to get the bathroom drain running smoothly again.
First you pour some baking soda down the drain then add vinegar; wait a while then flush the sink with hot water. If it does not deliver the results you want, repeat the process again. Sometimes it works well, but after a few weeks you run water and the sink fills up. You try to wait patiently while hoping it will drain. You can use home remedies again or you can call Windsor Plumbing and use our drain services. Windsor Plumbing experts will get those pipes cleaned out thoroughly. The next time you fill the sink with water and pull the plug it will drain out of the sink instantly.
The baking soda and vinegar remedy is fine for a short term solution. However, if you want your drains to run smoothly for a long time, the pipes need to be thoroughly cleaned. Simple solutions create a temporarily clear path for water to drain, but there are still mineral deposits and other debris caked on the pipes that will keep causing the water to drain slowly as hair, soap, grease, and food continually get caught, building up and leading to a blockage.
Hydro jet drain cleaning; how it works
In order for drains to run smoothly all deposits need to be cleaned out. Hydro jet drain cleaning does just that. Water, pressurized by a special machine is forced through the drain at a pressure high enough to clean out all the debris in the pipes. Hydro jetting can be incredibly effective.
First we determine how extensive the problem is.
Next we find an access point near the clog. This clean-out opening is where a nozzle attached to a high pressure hose is placed.
After the nozzle is in place, water, pressurized from the tank is forced through the pipe. The amount of pressure used depends on how big the obstruction is.
The pressurized water dislodges all the debris present in the pipe.
After impacted debris has been forced out, the hose is removed and the clean-out opening is securely closed.
The last step is testing the system. We make sure your pipes are clear, working well and the drains are operating smoothly.
Hydro jet drain cleaning is one of the best ways to get your pipes back into like-new condition.
Clean out drain pipe mineral buildup
As time progresses minerals in the water adhere to the surface of the pipes. They build up and create areas where blockages can occur. As you can imagine these area are jagged and hair, food and other debris get caught easily creating slow drains and sometime blocking drains completely. Cleaning out the drain pipe without removing the mineral buildup is a very short term solution.
In order to get the best results for freely moving drainage, the deposits need to be cleaned out as well. Hydro jet drain cleaning breaks up the mineral deposits without damaging the pipes and removes them from the pipe surface. The force of the pressurized water not only cleans away food, soap, hair and whatever else may be caught on the deposits, it eliminates the deposits altogether leaving pipes clean.
Unclog Drain With Plumber’s Snake
Using the hydro jet is one way of unclogging backed-up drains. Another tried and true method you may be more familiar with is the plumber’s snake. It is also called the plumber’s auger and can be used on clogged toilets as well.This device is a long metal tube. Inside the tube is a cable attached to blades or a corkscrew auger on one end and a crank on the other.
The blade end is inserted into the drain and the tube is fed down the pipe until it reaches the obstruction. The crank is turned and one of two things happens. Either a hole is made through the clog or the clog gets twisted around the auger so it can be pulled out of the drain.
