Garbage Disposal Repair
Garbage disposals are a modern convenience that we often take for granted. This electrical appliance under your kitchen sink is designed to quickly grind food into tiny pieces. This helps prevent clogs from disposed food and minimizes waste in landfills.
Because such a large amount of material passes through it, a garbage disposal can be susceptible to failure. If the unit stalls, there is often a reset button underneath the sink on the bottom or back of the disposal. If a restart does not solve the problem, call our expert plumbers to promptly assess the issue.
We will help you determine if it’s more cost effective to repair the disposal or replace it with a new one. We believe in honestly and integrity, so we provide our expertise to our customers and give up-front pricing.
Garbage Disposal Maintenance & Cleaning
While it is likely that a disposal will eventually have issues, there are simple things you can do to clean and maintain your garbage disposal in order to lengthen its life. The following tips are simple to follow and can be done in just a few minutes each week.
- For odor control, put a lemon or orange down the drain with cold water running.
- To maintain the sharpness of the blades, a cup or two of ice down the disposal will do wonders.
- Finally, pour ammonia and warm water in the drain, leaving it to sit for half an hour. Then turn on your disposal while running cold water.
