What are Garbage Disposals?

Garbage disposals are mechanical devices installed under kitchen sinks that shred food waste into smaller particles, allowing them to flow through plumbing systems seamlessly. They are equipped with impellers and a motor that pulverize food scraps, reducing the risk of clogs in drainage pipes and sewer lines.

The Benefits of Garbage Disposals

A garbage disposal installation has a few benefits to offer. First and foremost, garbage disposals help prevent clogs by breaking down food waste before it enters the plumbing system. This reduces the likelihood of blockages and backups in sink drains and pipes.

Using a garbage disposal eliminates the need for manual scraping and disposal of food scraps, making kitchen cleanup more efficient and less messy. This proper disposal of food waste in a garbage disposal promotes better hygiene in the kitchen by reducing odors, minimizing pest attraction, and preventing bacterial growth in trash bins.

Finally, garbage disposals can contribute to environmental sustainability by reducing the amount of organic waste sent to landfills. Food waste processed by disposals can be treated in wastewater treatment plants and converted into biogas or fertilizer.

Signs Your Garbage Disposal is in Trouble

There are a few warning signs that you should keep your eyes – and ears and nose – peeled for:

  1. Persistent Clogs: If your sink drain frequently clogs despite proper use, it could indicate a problem with the garbage disposal or drainage system.
  2. Slow Draining: If water drains slowly from the sink or backs up, it may be due to a partially clogged garbage disposal or drainage pipe.
  3. Unusual Noises: Grinding or rattling noises coming from the garbage disposal may signal mechanical issues or loose components that require attention.
  4. Foul Odors: Lingering odors emanating from the garbage disposal or sink can indicate food buildup or bacterial growth, which should be addressed promptly.

Caring for Your Garbage Disposal

The garbage disposal works day in and day out, but it can use a hand every now and then. Routinely cleaning the garbage disposal can help prevent odors, food buildup, and bacterial growth. Using ice cubes, citrus peels, or specialized cleaning solutions can keep the disposal clean and odor-free.

Not everything can go in the garbage disposal though! Remember to refrain from disposing of hard materials like bones, fruit pits, or fibrous foods (e.g., celery, corn husks) in the garbage disposal, as they can damage the blades and motor.

Finally, schedule periodic inspections by a qualified plumber to check the condition of the garbage disposal, ensure proper functionality, and address any potential issues early on. Urgent Rooter is proud to offer garbage disposal services. Call now to schedule an appointment or request urgent assistance.

Highly Recommend Urgent Rooter Plumbing Service

I stumbled upon Urgent Rooter doing a Google search for a clogged shower drain. I'm glad I did because I was quoted and billed $125. Gustavo M. was professional, efficient, and informative of all charges and details of the service. I recommend Urgent Rooter.

Donald Wing

Boris was amazing, he was very informative and friendly. While he was unable to initially fix our issue he was able to educate us on our options. Definitely recommend him and will use his services again.
