You know how you feel after a big holiday meal — full, bloated, and sleepy! Well, your plumbing system can sort of feel the same way. You see, one of the most common plumbing problems we get called for during this time of the year is kitchen sink clogs, and there are a number of reasons why. Certain food items, like celery stalks, corn husks, potato skins, FOG (fats, oils, and grease, and rice can all lead to clogged drains and pipes!
