From cooking to cleaning, you use your kitchen sink for a lot of tasks. If the drain becomes clogged, you’re going to notice immediately, and it's going to be a pretty big inconvenience until it gets fixed. Kitchen sink clogs are typically the result of food debris and cooking grease that build up along the sides of your pipes over time. Many stores sell chemical drain cleaners to tackle these types of clogs, but there are several reasons why you should stay away from them. These products are harsh and may ruin your plumbing system, plus they are highly corrosive and dangerous to handle. What we recommend instead is a more natural, yet still highly effective treatment: enzyme drain cleaners.
How Do Enzyme Drain Cleaners Work?
Persistent clogs typically do not respond well to baking soda or vinegar treatments, but there is another natural drain cleaning method that does work: enzyme drain cleaners. These eco-friendly drain cleaning products contain living bacteria, which produce enzymes that break down organic buildup in your plumbing system. These natural enzymes are the perfect solution to a clogged kitchen drain, where efficient water flow is critical.
The best part about enzyme cleaners, besides the fact that they are very safe to use, is that they continue to work over time. You’ll notice noteworthy results almost immediately, but the enzymes will actively clean your drain for weeks or even months after the first use. Your disposal and drain will remain clear as the bacteria in your drain continue to break down any solids.
Add Enzyme Drain Cleaners to Your Drain Maintenance Routine
The most efficient way to solve a drain clog is by preventing one altogether. There’s a reason so many plumbers highly recommend preventative maintenance. When properly cared for, your plumbing system will reward you by functioning correctly.
Here's what you can do to avoid drain clogs:
- Use drain covers to prevent hair or food debris from falling into the drain
- Run hot water down the drain after each use
- Toss a handful of baking soda down the drain, then run the hot water to remove buildup and odors
- Add enzyme drain cleaner to your drain on an as-needed basis
