How Kitchen and Laundry Sink Plumbing Works

The plumbing in many Detroit area homes works in a way that all of the drains are connected to same plumbing pipes. Your drains can easily back up with a combination of grease, starch, and fibers, and instead of water backing up at the kitchen sink, kitchen water will start to back in other drains.

It's very common for homes in the Metro-Detroit area to have drains that back up due to the kitchen or laundry sinks. Regularly cleaning these drains is an important part of your home's plumbing maintenance plan. We use the highest quality tools and most up-to-date procedures to thoroughly clean these drains and ensure that your kitchen and laundry sinks are cleared, and stay cleared.

Signs of Clogged Kitchen or Laundry Sink Drains

  • Gurgling sounds come from the drains, especially running a washing machine or dishwasher.
  • Mysterious puddles of water appear on the floor near tubs or sinks.
  • Water backs up out of a sink drain.
  • You notice a rotting food smell coming from your home's kitchen sink drain or disposal.

Clearing Area Floor Drains

Most people think of their kitchens and bathrooms when they are considering the most important aspects of their home's plumbing system. These rooms are home to the plumbing fixtures that people use most often, like sinks, dishwashers, and showers. However, it's important to remember that basements and utility rooms are home to some of your most important plumbing fixtures - your water heater and your floor drains. Area floor drains in Metro-Detroit are an extremely important part of any home's plumbing system, and keeping them clean sometimes gets forgotten.

The plumbing experts at Father & Son Plumbing and Heating can help you keep all of the drains in your home functioning properly and efficiently. We've been Metro-Detroit's professional plumbing and drain cleaning experts for two generations. We are so confident in our drain cleaning abilities that it always come with a guarantee on our workmanship. If you've noticed a problem with your area floor drains, you can rely on us to get your drains flowing freely again.

Anywhere in your home that may have areas in danger of flooding and causing damage should have an area floor drain. Basements are the bottom-most part of your home, so naturally, floor drains are especially common in them. Just like all of your other drains, these floor drains need to be equipped with traps beneath them which should be kept full of water in order to prevent sewer gasses or odors from escaping into the room. Many times, these traps become clogged and blocked with debris, and that can cause a backup. Our drain-cleaning experts can help you clear these blocks and provide you with tips on maintaining your floor drains to prevent blockage in the future.

The constant draining of grease, soap, and food waste can add up quickly and cause your home's drains to clog and run slowly over time. If you notice that your drains are running more and more slowly, there's a good chance that a clog is beginning to develop, and you should call us as soon as possible to have the blockage assessed and cleared quickly to avoid any unnecessary blockages.

Hydro Jetting 

When a traditional snaking cable cannot remove the clog, then hydro jetting may be recommended as a next step. The hydro jetter consists of a large tank of water, a high-pressure hose with a high-strength nozzle, and a machine that pressurizes the water in the hose. The Hydro Jetting process is done through your plumbing cleanout. The pressurized water is sprayed out of the nozzle at a very high rate. By working upstream, the hydro jetter clears out debris which harmlessly flows down the already cleared drainage path. 

Hydro Jetting sewer lines can have some serious benefits!  Father & Son's water jetting process easily removes debris, built up mineral deposits, and even tree roots from the pipes of your plumbing system, without damaging your pipes. However, if tree roots have penetrated your pipes, then your pipes are more likely to have repeated backups.

Over time, tree roots can cause serious damage to the pipe’s protective waterproof coating and the pipe itself. Give us a call to schedule a free estimate to determine the cause of your sewer backup and the best strategy to remedy the problem.  We can perform a sewer inspection to determine if Hydro Jetting is the best solution.
