Keeping your kitchen in working order is essential to make sure that your home runs smoothly. If your kitchen breaks down, you cannot cook meals and the hub of your family life ends up breaking down. For this reason alone, you need to keep your eyes on the plumbing in your kitchen. The last thing you want is a burst pipe or a backed up drain in your kitchen. Here are three signs that you need to have a plumber come in and take a look at the plumbing in your kitchen.

Leaky Faucets

A leaky faucet is quite annoying, listening to it drip all night can keep you from sleep, and it can also end up increasing your water bill (yes that little drip can increase your water bill!). You need to fix a leak as soon as possible because that leaking water can end up causing mould growth, which can lead to allergic reactions and the need to replace cabinets. Fixing a leak is often quite inexpensive, so there really is no excuse.

If you have a leaky faucet, then you need to call us at Total Plumbing and Heating. This easy fix can be performed in about an hour, depending on the cause, and you will end up saving yourself money, and the headache of a mouldy under-the-sink area. If you want to try and DIY this fix, you can try to replace washers and O-rings, but if this does not do the job, your best bet is to call the professionals.

Bad Smells

Many people end up having bad smells wafting out of their kitchen sink or dishwasher. If this is your case, both things need a good clean. While cleaning a dishwasher is relatively easy (dishwasher cleaning products are sold at the store, you just need to put them in the dishwasher and run a cycle) cleaning out build-up in your drain and pipes can be a lot more difficult. You also might have ended up having a small animal climb into the pipes and die, which is causing the foul smell.

At Total Plumbing and Heating, we can come in with a plumbing camera and check out what is causing the bad smell and if it is a dead animal or just old-fashioned food waste build-up. No matter the cause, we can clean out your pipes and get your kitchen smelling fresh again.

Clogged or Slow Draining Drains

If you pull the plug on your kitchen sink and the water does not go down at all or slowly gurgles down the pipes, then you need to contact a plumber. It is easy to end up with a clogged kitchen drain because food waste inevitably goes down the drain (but hopefully not grease or oil!). If the drain is slow or unsteady, the water level rises in the sink, or water has to flow out of the emergency drain, you will need to get your pipes serviced.
