Trust Our Local Calgary Plumbers To Fix Your Clogged Kitchen Sink

If you have a garburator installed in your sink to grind and get rid of food waste, you still have to be mindful of what enters into your sink because flushing waste that is too large or coarse down the drain can result in a clogged kitchen sink. Given that so much food passes through the sink in the kitchen, a clogged kitchen sink will, undoubtedly cause a strong and unpleasant smell.

How to Clear a Clogged Kitchen Sink in Calgary

1. Clearing a Greasy Clogged Kitchen Sink in Calgary

Our professional Calgary plumbers are available to help you with your clogged kitchen sink anytime. But you may want to try the following methods to clear your clogged kitchen sink of clogs. While none of the methods is guaranteed, they are worth being tried. Contact Urban Piping when your clogged kitchen sink proves too stubborn to be fixed by the methods below.

Being one of the most common causes of the clogged kitchen sink, starting with clearing a greasy clog is the right thing to do. If the clogged kitchen sink is as a result of grease, then pouring boiling water and dish soap down the drain should be able to remove the clog.

Before you start the clearing process, remove the backed up water from the sink with a ladle or cup. Pour a half cup of dish soap down the drain. Immediately after that, pour about 10 cups boiling water down the drain. Leave the mixture and allow to cool off. If the clog was caused by grease or fat, the drain should be clear. However, if the situation persists, you should try another method.

2. Plunging the Clogged Kitchen Sink in Calgary

This is where your homeowner’s plunger will be useful. Irrespective of whether there is water in the kitchen sink or not, the plunger is a handy tool you must keep near you in the kitchen. Put your plunger in the sink carefully. Push the plunger up and down severally for about 2 minutes and put some water to test if there is a passage already. If the water goes down the drain without a hindrance, you have successfully removed the clog. However, if the drain remains clogged, try another method or call Urban Piping for Calgary Plumbers that make short work of a clogged kitchen sink.

3. Removal of the Drain Trap

The cause of your clogged kitchen sink might be the trap that is why you should take a look at it if the first two methods failed. Removing the drain trap of your clogged kitchen sink is not complicated, although it can be messy. Before you start, place a bucket underneath the ‘S pipe’ in the sink drain and also towels to contain any splatter from the drain. Start by using big pliers or wrenches to turn the nut on the ‘S pipe.’

Be as gentle as possible in order not to crush the pipe. There is a possibility that water will leak out of the pipe as you are unscrewing the nut. Having removed the ‘S pipe,’ check its inside for clogs or any blockages. Push an object through the pipe to remove any clogs that may be there. Replace the ‘S pipe’ and everything and check if the clog had been removed. If water cannot pass through, that means that the clog is down the pipe and needs a different approach.

4. Snaking a Clogged Kitchen Sink Pipe in Calgary

If the cause of the clogged kitchen sink is further down the pipes, a snake should be able to get rid of the clog.  Purchase a snake at your local Calgary handyman store and run it into your pipes until you feel resistance. Try and push past the resistance, which is the clog. Ensure to be as gentle as possible to avoid damaging your pipes. If you can successfully get past the clog, then you must have removed the clog.

What Causes a Clogged Kitchen Sink in Calgary

As a precautionary measure, keep away the following clog-prone items from your sink. As long as you follow this guide, you will not experience a clogged kitchen sink for a long time. Here are the things that you should not flush down the drains of your kitchen sink.

  1. Eggshells
  2. Vegetable peelings
  3. Potato peelings
  4. Onion skins
  5. Fat, oils, and grease

Vegetable peelings, potato peelings, and onion skin cannot be wholly ground by the garburator. So, putting them into your sink increases the chances of clogging your kitchen sink. Also, avoid pouring oils, fat, and grease into your kitchen sink even when they are in liquid form. They will eventually cool down, solidify, and cause a clog. Throw away grease, fat, and oil properly and keep them away from your kitchen sink. You can flush boiling water with baking soda down the drain of your kitchen sink monthly to prevent lousy smell and keep your drain flowing smoothly.

Graham was honest, thorough, and friendly. He recommended only the services that were needed and started with the simplest approaches first.
We are super happy about the service we got from Urban Piping ! Jordan went above and beyond in helping us! He installed a new toilet , and kitchen faucet and helped out out with a couple small problems as well. I can't say enough about what great service we received.

Jordan was very pleasant and efficient replacing a toilet for us. Quick and seamless service. Graham was wonderful setting us up. Excellent service and helpfulness. Well done!
Very professional service. Went above and beyond compared to other plumbers I have used. Responded quickly including coming right back when we noticed something needed tweaking.
Recently Urban Piping did a drain cleaning at my residence in Mckenzie Towne because our sinks and showers were not draining properly. They were prompt, efficient, the price was right....and the problem was solved. Well Done.
Called Urban Piping at 7:30 am and Graham was here by 12:45. The job was done quickly and professionally. Would definitely use this company again.
Found out upon our home insurance renewal that our house in McKenzie had poly b piping, they were going to jack our premiums through the roof if we didn’t get it replaced. After some online searching we found Urban Piping specialized in poly b replacement so we decided to have them come out. From the initial estimate to the day the work was finished there was nothing but professionalism with them. I am proud to say our house is poly b free and we can’t even tell where the walls and ceilings where taken down.
Urban piping came and replaced all my poly b piping! They were fast and efficient and pretty cute to boot! Highly recommended
The poly B replacement they did turned out amazing. It was exactly as quoted and you couldn’t tell where they opened up the walls and ceiling. He was punctual, friendly, professional, and extremely knowledgeable! If you need an amazing plumber call urban piping Ltd. highly recommended
Great work and great service! Would highly recommend. Jordan is the greatest.
Graham and the rest of the team at urban piping we’re professional and efficient with their work on my home. Will be highly recommending them to all my friends and keeping them in mind for future jobs. Thank you !

Jordan replaced the hot water tank for us. Really nice guy, great job done. A good company to work with. Keep up the good work.
Very professional, friendly, and affordable. Highly recommend for any plumbing work. 👍👍👍
Jordan arrived punctual, and completed the job to our satisfaction in the time allotted. Both Jordan and Graham were friendly and courteous. Job site was left clean and tidy after old tanks removed. They were recommended to us by a friend, and I would certainly recommend them to our friends.
Forward thinking company with integrity
Graham from Urban Piping arrived on time and had everything ready to go. He gave me a quote for $700 to do a Garburator in my kitchen. He inspected my existing plumbing under my sink and then explained to me the process and immediately went to work. Not only does the garburator work great but now the plumbing under my sink is very clean and organized. The invoice on my bill was BELOW the quote. I didn't think that was possible but I was extremely happy. I HIGHLY recommend having the guys at Urban Piping as they did the job right the first time. I will definitely be using them again when I do my basement renovation!
Graham does an amazing job very well done. Love these guys
these guys are so good honestly saved my home when i needed it the most. cant recommend them enough

Graham and Jordan do an amazing job! so efficient and clean i was truly impressed with the level of professionalism and quality done from urban piping
The guy with the beard was fun to hang out and talk with while he did work on my entertainment room.
Urban Piping did an outstanding job replacing the poly-b throughout our house, replacing toilets and flushing drain lines. We were impressed with the customer service, prompt response time and attention to detail through the estimate process. Going through the findings, I learned a lot about the house because Graham took the time to show and explain things to me, even well outside the scope of work. These guys do the entire job, including the refinishing work to walls, ceilings, etc so my job was easier, I didn't have to research and hire separate contractors for anything! Graham also helped us to make smart decisions about specific pieces of work to stay in budget.When it came time for work to begin, he walked me through what to expect through to completion. Attention to detail is beyond thorough with this crew! Everything turned out exactly as we expected and on budget, and the quality of the finishing work is so good that my family can't tell where the walls were opened up! They ran air scrubbers and took great care to protect the house from damage or traveling mess; it was cleaner when they left than it was before they started! Thanks for taking such great care of us through this project, guys!

Huge shout out to Jordan for going above and beyond to repair our 1974 plumbing!! Even managed to track down the only 2 remaining parts in all of Canada!! You are awesome, thank you Jordan and Graham for helping us out! Highly recommend Urban Piping Ltd.
Jordan from Urban Piping came over to do a complete drain cleaning service to our home because we were having problems with the bathroom sinks and drains draining slowly. He was in time, very friendly and cleaned every drain in our home. He also found that there was a problem with a seal in our master bathtub and fixed that for us too. Quick, easy, and great price on the service. Good job guys.
Very good on the plumbing and pipe replacement side of things. Ok on the drywall work.
Professional and friendly staff, have used them on multiple occasions to help install a new water tank and a few emergency calls. Would highly recommend to everyone!
What water tank replacement My hot water stop working so I called urban piping ltd and Graham answered the phone was and was very professional he tried to trouble shoot it over the phone and when he couldn't help over the phone he came the next day early morning looked at it told me his thoughts on the hot water tank and that it had to be replaced so with in a hour he had a new tank at my house and in one more hour he had it installed and working so for that I'm grateful to Graham Drew at urban piping and will be calling them again when something else quits and I will recommend them to my friends and family so once again thank You Graham Drew great work!!!😊
We contacted Urban Piping to complete a poly-b remediation in our home. Graham was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions before the work began.We really appreciated Urban Piping going above and beyond including using an air scrubber during the project to keep the house clean. They made every effort to give suggestions throughout the project and worked very hard to get the work done in a tight timeline. Graham personally came back to our house when the project was complete to discuss the invoice and any final questions or problems we might have had. You don't normally get this kind of service from other contractors and it definitely put us at ease. We chose to use Urban Piping because of their impressive experience with poly-b remediation and because they answered every question we had and made sure we were completely satisfied. We would absolutely recommend them to others for this work to be completed in their home.
Graham and his team were fantastic! His calm demeanor coupled with his excellent service made our Poly-B replacement as stress-free as possible. The attention to detail is unsurpassed. He reorganized our shut-off valves to make them more accessible, brought the plumbing up to the current code, totally protected our home and furnishings, and left the home in almost spotless condition. Having the big air scrubbers constantly on to remove the dust, the plastic walls cordoning off areas and the great clean-up crew made coming back home a great experience. On time and on budget too!!! I'd recommend Urban Piping to everyone for Poly-B remediation.
I cannot express my admiration enough for this company. Came home to a busted leaking water tank, and with a way after hours call to them (expecting a machine and instead, chatting with the owner) had arranged a replacement the next day. He showed up when he said, and was in and out in 1 .5 hours complete ( I had drained the tank ahead of time) An absolute professional job, and very cognisant of keeping carpet and floors clean. I would not hesitate for a second to recommend Urban Piping Ltd. for any water tank replacement or any other job for that matter. Thank you Graham, you have a customer for life.Richard S.
