Garbage Disposals

All Repairs & Replacement

If you have a garbage disposal, you know how great it is to be able to easily get rid of food scraps without having to worry about a clogged drain. Remember when you had to catch all the food gunk in a stopper and then try not to gag as you picked it up to throw it away?

Unfortunately, garbage disposals are only meant to dispose of certain biodegradable items. There are many things that can unwittingly clog or break your garbage disposal.

What NOT to put down your garbage disposal:

  • Stringy Vegetables
  • Husks
  • Grease
  • Large Bones
  • Skins
  • Pasta and Rice
  • Pits and Seeds

You can help sharpen your garbage disposal’s blades with ice and help with the smell by grinding citrus peels and wedges.

Even if you use your garbage disposal properly, there are other causes for a malfunctioning garbage disposal:

  • Faulty Wiring
  • Jammed Grinder/Disk
  • Leaking Hoses and Seals
  • Worn out Impeller
  • Tripped Reset Button
  • Misuse

Since your garbage disposal has many moving parts and is hooked up to both your plumbing and electricity, it is recommended that you get a licensed and trained technician out to repair your garbage disposal. Don’t risk further damaging your disposal or putting yourself at risk trying to fix it yourself.

Your garbage disposal is meant to last a long time, but sometimes replacement is necessary.
