Some people refer to the kitchen as the “hearth” of the home. This isn’t just some kind of cute phrase that would sound good in a piece of inspirational art. By most accounts, it’s true! The kitchen is the place in the home where everyone gathers for breakfast or dinner, usually with a lot of sunlight, smiles, warmth, and conversation. To many families, the kitchen is sacred, and if anything were to happen to their kitchen, they’d be devastated.
We’re not here to tell you that anything bad is going to happen to your kitchen. But we’re going to be honest with you, something bad could be happening underneath your kitchen. Your kitchen drains could be clogged, leaking, or in rough shape in general.
We’d like to spend this blog post talking about services like drain cleaning in Phoenix, AZ and why you might want to be a proactive homeowner when it comes to protecting your kitchen’s plumbing.
1. Invest in Plumbing Maintenance
In order to keep your kitchen in good condition, there are some steps you can take as a homeowner to make things better. Think about how you clean your kitchen regularly—every bit of effort you put into keeping your kitchen clean and functional is going to make it that much better when you invite friends and family over for dinner.
Plumbing maintenance is a regular service we offer that lets a professional plumber take a good hard look at your plumbing system, especially the pipes under your kitchen. Unlike other tame inspections or quick amateur fixes, we can actually provide serious adjustments and repairs during maintenance to ensure that it’s working to the best of its ability. And, to top it all off, if there’s something we notice that should be fixed, we’ll schedule a repair for you at the next most convenient time.
2. Keep Your Drain Clean of Clogging Culprits
Have you seen neighbors or family members use mesh screens in the drains of their kitchen sinks? This isn’t just for aesthetic purposes or to help with cleaning, it’s to ensure that no contaminants get down into the drain that shouldn’t be there. Food waste, beans, rice, and other materials can quickly add up to clog your drains and make your life hard.
Another great tip you can take advantage of is to keep FOG out of your drain. No, we’re not talking about mist, we’re talking about fats, oils, and grease. These materials are liquid when you’re cooking with them, but they quickly cool down and become solid in your drains. They’ll easily clog up your drain when you’re least expecting it. Throw these materials into the trash instead.
3. Get Your Drains Cleaned Regularly
This might be the most helpful solution on this list. Investing in regular drain cleaning services by our team can clear your home of any drain clogging materials you might be dealing with. Our powerful tools, like hydro jets, can use pressurized natural water to remove any and all contaminants that might be holding on for dear life on the lining of your pipes.
