Maintenance Tips for Dishwashers and Drains
Your sink drain, dishwasher and garbage disposal can cause dirty work in your kitchen. However, with just a few simple plumbing tips, you can keep your dishwasher and sink drain running efficiently.
“Dishwashers and drains battle kitchen waste and activity daily, which can take a toll on the appearance and performance if not cleaned correctly,” said Chris Salatino with Kenmore Major Appliances.
Electric dishwashers require regular cleaning. To ensure efficient performance, make sure you clean the filter at least once a month. You can also use commercial cleaners to help remove the mineral buildup.
If you are having problems with a smelly drain, you may need to remove the bacteria growing in it. Use a bleach solution if your sink’s drain is clogged with moldy buildup.
