Garbage Repair and Replacement Services
Garbage disposals are among the most popular appliances in households. These electrically powered devices located under the kitchen sink are so handy and many times consumers don’t realize all they do until they begin to malfunction. If not operated or maintained correctly, garbage disposals can break down, clog the drains, or require expensive repairs.
When this crisis hits, there are a few things you should and should not do to solve the problem. For example, if you suspect your garbage disposal is broken and decide to repair it yourself, never place your hand down the drain into the disposal. Also, never pour an over the counter drain treatment as it can further damage the appliance. Instead, make sure the disposal is plugged in. If it is, try pressing the reset button found at the bottom of the appliance.
If resetting your disposal doesn’t fix the problem, it’s time to contact a plumbing service. Not only is this a dangerous job for individuals to do themselves, but the slightest wrong move can damage your appliance beyond repair.
Consequently, some of the common signs that your garbage disposal may be broken include strange, humming like noises coming from the sink, garbage disposal leaks, or water that drains slowly. Damaged disposals are usually caused by improper disposal of food waste.
To avoid needing a garbage disposal replace, avoid placing the following items inside the drain:
- Glass, plastic, metal
- Oils and fats
- Large or hard food items
- Potato peels
- Expandable foods like pasta or rice
- Bones, meat, skin
- Fibrous foods
- Apple seeds or peach pits
Clogged drain lines should be looked at by a professional contractor. Taking care of the matter yourself, can not only further damage the disposal but endanger your safety. Hiring a reliable plumbing service is the best option and it does not have to cost you an arm and a leg. Reliable plumbing providers are also able to tell you if the garbage disposal is repairable or needs to be replaced.
Whatever the case may be, an experienced, licensed professional is able to repair your garbage disposal or install a brand new one for you in only a matter of hours.
