Garbage disposals are a modern household convenience that we do not pay much attention to until they break. A clogged or broken garbage disposal can create quite a plumbing problem too! Our technicians are highly experienced in repairing garbage disposals, replacing old garbage disposals, and clearing garbage disposal clogs. Garbage disposals can become damaged when non-food items enter the disposal.
All it takes is a few pieces of plastic or metal to cause a build-up inside your garbage disposal that prevents food from moving through it. This can lead to an entire drain system backup if left untreated for too long! It’s important to keep an eye on your garbage disposal so you know when it needs repair or replacement. Here are some tips on how to avoid issues with your garbage disposal!
Garbage disposals are one of the most useful appliances in your kitchen. They make cleaning up after dinner so much easier, but they can also be dangerous if you’re not careful. Here are some helpful tips to make sure your garbage disposal stays running strong and is safe for you and your family:
Before you put food in the garbage disposal, make sure the faucet is on and the garbage disposal is already running. Also, make sure you only run cold water into the disposal to prevent the motor from overheating.
Try to avoid putting stringing foods, like lemons or celery, into the garbage disposal. Stringy foods and starchy food, like potato peels, cannot be broken down properly by the disposal and can break the garbage disposal.
Foods like rice and pasta expand when they come in contact with water and can lead to clogs in your garbage disposal. It is always best to avoid these types of foods when using your garbage disposal.
Garbage disposals can be a tricky thing! If you have a very old garbage disposal that keeps breaking, it might be time to replace your disposal with a new one. On the other hand, you might just need a simple repair to your existing unit.
