The kitchen is one of the most used rooms in the house. It’s also the location of a lot of pipes, fixtures, and appliances that can be susceptible to developing issues. In order to avoid major issues and improve the longevity of your home’s plumbing system, it’s important to follow a few simple maintenance tips.

1. Keep an eye out for leaks.

Hidden leaks are a common plumbing problem and one of the most expensive to fix. That’s why it is important to keep an eye out for any leaks originating from your kitchen sink, faucet, or other appliances. At the first sign of trouble, contact a local plumber to investigate and fix the problem before major damage can occur.

2. Take care of your faucet.

Plumbing issues can arise with the kitchen sink faucet simply due to the amount of use it gets. One way to ensure a longer-lasting faucet is to keep the faucet’s aerator clean. Over time, lime buildup or sediment can block the small openings in the aerator and result in lower water pressure or leaks. To clean the aerator, carefully unscrew it from the faucet and use a small brush to remove the sediment.

3. Prevent clogs

Wherever there’s a drain, the potential for clogs exists. The kitchen sink is no exception. The best way to prevent clogs from forming is to be mindful of what goes into the sink. The most common culprits for kitchen sink clogs include coffee grounds, eggshells, fat, grease, oil, and starchy foods like rice and potatoes. There is a common misconception that it’s safe to send these items down the drain if they go through the garbage disposal first. In reality, these items can still cause clogs in a drain line even if they’ve been chopped into tiny pieces. Periodically cleaning your kitchen sink drain with dish soap, warm water, and vinegar will help break apart any debris before it can form a large blockage.
