Reasons for clogging the sink pipe
Sometimes, if you don’t try to unclog the pipe in the first few days, the blockage becomes so severe and difficult that you will need a pipe unclogging service to open it. The reasons that cause this problem are:
- Entry of food waste, tea grounds, fruit, vegetables, etc. into the pipe
- Pouring oil and fats in the pipe
- Entry of carpet lint and similar materials into the pipe
- Sediments and mass
- The slope of the dishwasher pipe is low
Be careful: sometimes when washing greasy and oily dishes, fats enter the pipe; Then you turn on the cold water. Cold water causes fats to stick to the wall of the pipe and other things to stick to themselves. In this way, sediment is formed on the pipe wall. This sediment has caused the diameter of the pipe to decrease and if the sediments are not removed soon, the pipe will be completely blocked and as a result the water in the pipe will rise.
If you don’t have proper nets in the sink to catch food and other materials and garbage, the food will settle in the pipe and gradually clog the pipe. The material inside the pipe is rotten and causes a bad and unpleasant smell.
