How Sink Garbage Disposals Benefit Homeowners

Are you without a garbage disposal unit in your kitchen sink drain? You’re missing out on a lot:

  • Reduce Drain Clogs: Break up food into smaller chunks so that it can flow down the drain with relative ease.
  • Make Cleanup and Cooking Easier: Make fewer trips to the garbage can, scrape plates into the drain as you clean them, and cook or clean a lot faster with the help of a sink disposal unit.
  • Create More Hygienic Conditions: Without a kitchen garbage disposal, you have to throw your food waste into the trashcan, and the longer it sits, the longer the odors linger.

Contact a local technician for garbage disposal installation or replacement today, and make your job in the kitchen a lot easier. Only an experienced professional can ensure that the new unit is installed safely and correctly. Our plumbers are here to handle any plumbing installation for you, big or small!

Maintaining Your Kitchen Garbage Disposal

You should keep in mind that your garbage disposal cannot break apart every item you put into it. The impellers that move when you flip the switch are not razor sharp as you may imagine. They can only process food waste—anything you could break apart with human teeth. That’s why we warn any homeowner against putting food wrappers, meat bones, or any other hard foods or non–foods into the drains, in order to avoid garbage disposal repair.

There are a couple of other food items that could be harmful to your garbage disposal. Stringy, fibrous foods like celery and onion skins might not fare well in the disposal because they could become wrapped up in the impellers. Large chunks of food are more difficult for the unit to break up and could overwork the motor. Fats, oils, and grease can coat the unit and the inside of your pipes as they cool.
