How to Prevent Sink Drain Odors

Posted on July 7th, 2016

 

Is there a bad odor coming from you kitchen sink?  There may be some left over food particles in your garbage disposal.  Fortunately, with a little deodorizing, you can eliminate these foul odors from your kitchen.

Steps to Eliminate Drain Odors:

  1. Turn on the Disposal – Turn on the disposal and run some water down the drain. This will help dislodge and clean the inside of the garbage disposal.

  2. Add Ice Cubes – Pour a few cups of ice cubes down your disposal and wait until the ice cubes have been crushed and cleared out.

  3. Add Lemon Peels – Throwing a few lemon peels and ice cubes down your disposal will help freshen things up and get rid of any noxious odors. Instead of a foul stench, you’ll be left with a citrus scent!

  4. Turn off the disposal – After the lemon peels and ice cubes have been cleared out, turn off your disposal and then turn off the water. You should be left with a fresh smelling sink!

Repeat these steps to keep your garbage disposal smelling fresh and clean all year long.  If you’re still having trouble getting rid of your sink odors, give us a call!
