What Garbage Disposal Problems Can Be Repaired?
There are a number of reasons your garbage disposal might be acting up. One of the most common problems to affect garbage disposals is clogging or a jam. There are things you can do to prevent clogs, but sometimes they happen anyway. You can reduce the risk of clogging your garbage disposal by only putting food down the drain. Additionally, never put the following food down your disposal:
- Coffee grounds
- Expanding foods (bread, rice, pasta, etc.)
- Bones, nuts, shells and seeds
- Potato and citrus peels
- Stringy fruits and vegetables
- Fats and oils
Another problem you could be having with your disposal is a foul odor. If foul odors are coming from your disposal and they won’t go away, we can come and determine where the problem is coming from.
If you find that your garbage disposal is needing repairs more and more frequently, and it is 10 years old or older, you should consider replacement. We can help you find and install affordable and efficient garbage disposal replacement.
