Kitchen Drain Cleaning
PORTLAND OR – VANCOUVER WA
Notice an unpleasant odor coming from your kitchen sink or experiencing slow draining? You may be due for a kitchen drain cleaning. While you may be tempted to run out and purchase a chemical-based solution, this is seldom the best answer. Most are ineffective and can actually damage your plumbing. At Clog Pro Plumbing we provide safe and effective methods for your kitchen drain cleaning needs.
Signs of a Clogged Kitchen Sink Drain
The most telling sign of a clogged drain is slow drainage in your kitchen sink. After time, if the drain isn’t cleared, water will begin to back up and drainage will eventually stop altogether. Once drainage issues start, they typically only get worse over time until action is taken. So the sooner you address the issue, the better.

What Causes a Sink to Become Clogged?
Grease – Oil – Coffee Grounds – Soap Build Up
Clogged Garbage Disposal: One of the most common reasons for a clogged drain is a clogged garbage disposal. If you flip the switch to activate your garbage disposal and the water/food does not drain or you hear a humming sound, that would indicate a clogged or jammed garbage disposal. If this is the case, contact your local plumbers at Clog Pro Plumbing.
Clogged Dishwasher: It’s also important to know that the running water in your sink and your dishwasher flow through the same drainage line. So if you’re experiencing a clog in that shared drain pipe, water can back up and overflow into your kitchen sink.
Avoid Tossing these Foods and Other Items Down Your Drain
Along with your garbage disposal and dishwasher, what you put down your sink drain is a direct cause of clogs. Foods and other items that are harmful to pipes include:
- Grease, meat, and oils
- Coffee grounds
- Vegetable peels
- Fruit seeds
- Paper towels and napkins
It’s best to compost those items or throw them away.
