There are many minor plumbing problems that a handy do-it-yourselfer can fix around his or her home. However, some jobs are better off left to a professional. One area of a house to consider hiring a professional plumber for is your kitchen.
You might think it is easy to get rid of a clog in your kitchen sink because the label on the bottle of clog remover says so. However, if your sink or garbage disposal seems to always be clogged, it could be a sign of a bigger problem. Making multiple attempts with caustic chemicals to clear your drains is dangerous, and it could damage your plumbing. It’s best to call a professional plumber.
Foul Smells Coming From Drain
Pouring vinegar and baking soda down your drain is a good way to neutralize smells that are common to kitchen sinks and/or garbage disposals. But if your drain is giving off extremely foul odors, this could also be a serious problem that requires a professional plumber. It could be that there is buildup down the drain line. If it is not properly removed, buildup could cause a complete clog. A foul smell could also be a sign that your drainpipes are not vented properly, and you are getting sewer gas in your home.
Any leak in your kitchen is the reason for concern, whether it is coming from your faucet, under your sink, your refrigerator’s water line or dishwasher. If a leak is not properly fixed, you will wind up needing more than a plumber once mold or mildew sets into your walls, kitchen cabinets or flooring. It’s important to stop a leak quickly.
Replacing Certain Appliances
Unless you have had experience installing a dishwasher, garbage disposal or water line for a refrigerator, you may want to leave the job to a professional plumber. If these appliances are improperly installed, you might not immediately notice water leaks until damage from mold or mildew has already begun.
If you’re ready to renovate, working with a professional plumber for your kitchen remodel is a must. Moving water and ventilation pipes or installing new piping for an island sink or pot filler over your stovetop are not DIY jobs. You may think you are saving money, but if done improperly or not up to code, you risk damage to your home and possible problems if you try to sell your home later on.
