Common Issues With Kitchen Sinks
You rely on your kitchen sink a lot every day—from the preparation to the cleanup of your meals. That is why it can be frustrating and even risky when something goes wrong with your sink. When this happens, don’t hesitate to contact a plumber in Lake Elsinore, CA, from A.M. Plumbing & Rooter. Find out the common problems with kitchen sinks below:
Kitchen sinks are susceptible to clogging, and it’s easy to see why. Several things can find their way down the drain, from grease to food scraps. Even if you have a garbage disposal, you should be careful of what you put down the drain. A simple way to prevent clogs is to use a drain screen. If the sink gets clogged, avoid using chemical drain cleaners and call a plumbing company to deal with the issue.
Leaks Underneath the Sink
Leaks under the sink usually originate from the drain or water supply line. The drain leaks easily at pipe connections, while the water line often leaks at the area where it fastens to the wall. Worn-out seals and gaskets usually cause leaks to occur. Enlist plumbing repairs once you notice mold growth or damp spots on your floor.
Leaky faucets can waste gallons of water, even if it’s just a minor drip. If the faucet handle is closed all the way and still drips, it’s best to hire plumbing services to get to the root of the problem. We may check if there are water pressure issues, loose faucet coverings, and other factors that may cause leaks. In most cases, we can easily fix the problem. If the faucet is on its last legs, however, we recommend a replacement.
Issues with your kitchen sink can be a major inconvenience, but by understanding the culprits behind them, you can take proactive steps to prevent them from becoming an emergency plumbing situation. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
Here's What Our Customers Are Saying About Us.
This afternoon we found a leak after disconnecting our refrigerator. We called A.M. Plumbing. Their response time was excellent. They arrived to our house within an hour after calling them. When the plumber got to the house, he was able to rapidly diagnose and fix the problem. He was very professional, did a great job and they charged us a very reasonable fee. I would recommend A.M. Plumbing to anyone that needs plumbing repairs. Thank you, again, for a job well done!
I have called A.M. plumbing twice. Both times the service was excellent. He was able to talk to me about the problem and offer his recommendations. I found him to be trustworthy and reliable, which is what I am looking for in a plumber. I would highly recommend A.M.Dan Steele
Alex and his team are by far the easiest to work with! From the time I spoke with Kristen(sp?) to the time the job was complete they spoke to me like a person and not like I'm an idiot. I had a whole house repipe and an awesome never run out of hot water tankless water heater installed. They were professional and cleaned up after themselves. So glad to have found them on here and will be sure to pass along my experience with them to others. Thank you Alex and the team at AM, our family of 5 can finally have hot showers again!!
