Your Kitchen sink is most likely, the most used kitchen appliance in your home. It is where you wash dishes, hands, prepare food, and more. It is important that you keep it clean, and functioning. If your kitchen drain is neglected it can become clogged, and develop odor.
Every homeowner should avoid putting food down the drain in general. It can get caught on the walls of the garbage disposal, and not be disposed of properly. It can then cause odor and bacteria to develop. And end up dulling the blades of your garbage disposal. You should always clear off plates before washing anything off in the sink. If you’re constantly dealing with a clogged drain, it may be time to hire a plumbing services company to clean your drains thoroughly.
If you notice that you have buildup, and have to clean your faucet often, it could be because you have hard water. If you don’t have a water softener, your home has hard water. Hard water has high mineral content like magnesium, calcium, and sodium that can cause build up in pipes, and appliances. This can shorten the life span of your homes appliances, and its not safe to drink all the time. It will save you money in the long run, installing a water softener.
