For many of us, a large portion of our lives and memories are centered around our kitchens. Childhood memories of mom cooking, late night meals slapped together when you were too tired to think, the first meals cooked with your own family — for all of these moments, your kitchen is at the center.

We take doing the job right seriously and are eager to prove that to you. Whether you need a whole-house pipe replacement or it’s as simple as the garbage disposal not working, we’ve got your back.
When it comes to kitchen plumbing problems, our experts have dealt with every issue under the sun and are excited to extend that experience to you. Faucet, fixture, pipe or appliance, there isn’t an aspect of modern kitchen plumbing that we aren’t well versed in and equipped to fix.
With that experience in mind, here’s a list of the four most common kitchen plumbing issues our pros find themselves dealing with.
Kitchen sink faucets are one of the most problem-prone components in all of the kitchen plumbing, and it’s understandable why. Your kitchen sink is one of the most utilized parts of most plumbing systems and thus, wears down faster than some other parts.
A persistent drip allowed by a faulty faucet can end up costing you hundreds in wasted utility payments, so as small as it may seem, it’s important to deal with any faucet issues sooner rather than later.
Having a drain that fails to do its job can quickly turn into a lot of mopping — and in the worst scenarios, cost you money in flood-related damages. That’s why it’s important to take care of the drains in our kitchens and be aware of what can and can’t be washed down them. For quick reference, here’s a short list of things you should never wash down your kitchen sink:
Most clogs can be fixed with a simple plunger or drain snake. However, in cases where clogs seem just a bit too stubborn, or if you just don’t want to get your hands dirty, the professionals here at Mission Air have the equipment and skills to deal with even the worst of clogged drains using hydrojetting.
While incredibly convenient, the garbage disposal is another one of the common points of failure in the modern kitchen. Likewise, most of the garbage disposal repair jobs we find ourselves doing could be done by any homeowner with a little bit of know-how.
The most common disposal issue is a simple jam, where the unit will make noise but fail to rotate. This can generally be fixed by following these simple steps:
If you’re unsure or are uncomfortable with DIY solutions, our professionals are always more than happy to come to tackle any disposal issue you could be facing. Likewise, if you don’t have one and are considering a garbage disposal installation, we’ll be happy to assess your situation and come up with the best solution for you!
Leaky pipes are another common kitchen issues our plumbers find themselves fixing. This is another one of those issues that can seem small but blossom into a greater issue over time. That small drip can not only waste water and money but can also help create a breeding ground for mold and mildew.
