Garbage Disposal Repair

Garbage disposals are a great help in the kitchen, but you have to treat them with respect if you want them to last. To avoid calling for garbage disposal repair services, here are a few tips to remember:

  • Use cold water when you grind food. Hot water can melt fats that clog up.
  • Don’t overfill the garbage disposal.
  • Always run water before and after using the disposal.
  • Don’t put bleach, drain cleaners, or other chemicals down the unit.
  • Don’t try to grind bones, coffee grounds or overly fibrous materials (like corn husks), or things like glass, metal or rubber.
  • Never use your hand to pull material out. Use tongs or pliers instead.
