Garbage Disposals

Garbage Disposal Repair and Replacement Services

A garbage disposal is a great invention and an excellent way of saving money. It’s no secret that waste from cooking and all the scrap that is accumulated after each meal can clog your drains. Garbage disposal units help you save the extra money you would have otherwise spent on plumbers over time as it will help you unclog your drains without any professional help. .

When they’re maintained and used properly, they certainly do make things easier in the kitchen. When not used wisely, however, they can become exactly the opposite.

Installing a disposal in your home by one of our Glen Ellyn plumbers will help you ensure that there are no bad odors in your kitchen. Because the disposal grinds waste material into very small pieces, the garbage does not have an opportunity to sit around and rot in your waste basket. The waste is instead flushed into the sewage system. Getting rid of this waste helps fight against any nasty odors that might be invading your home.

Garbage Disposal Do’s and Don’ts

Run the garbage disposal regularly, even if you don’t need to use it much and you will prevent it from rusting up and keep any items from getting stuck.

How you put the food into the garbage disposal and how much you add is important to keeping it running well and not clogging up. Toss any larger food pieces in the garbage can or chop them small enough so they will grind well.

Whenever the disposal is turned on the cold water should also be turned on at the same time. Continue to run it for 15 seconds (or more) after it’s done grinding and powered up so that it flushes the food down the drain.

Keep your garbage disposal clean. After each use, run a little dish soap through it and flush with cold water for at least 15 seconds.

You should avoid putting oil and fats in your disposal unit as well. Fibrous foods like celery, asparagus, artichokes, chard, kale, lettuce, potato peelings, and onion skins should all be kept out of your garbage disposal unit. These items can easily entangle the blades causing it to jam.

Whether your garbage disposal got jammed, makes loud noise, leaks or worst of all has no power, your Glen Ellyn plumber is ready to repair or replace your garbage disposal.
