Garbage Disposals

Care For Your Tampa, FL Kitchen With Garbage Disposal Repair & Replacement

A broken or faulty garbage disposal can take away the joy of washing your dishes. They're one of the most vital modern conveniences, helping to prevent clogs in your drains by breaking up food matter. However, like all appliances, they do not last forever; in fact, most only survive for around 10-12 years.

What Are Some Problems I Could See With My Garbage Disposal?

As a homeowner, it's important to remain vigilant to keep an eye out for issues with any of your appliances or components so you can get them fixed before they become a serious issue. Your garbage disposal is no different. Here are some things to watch for:

Clogs - Garbage disposals are sturdy appliances that will take a lot of punishment; but while they are meant to help prevent clogs, it doesn't mean they are completely immune to them. Sometimes it's just enough to get the motor stuck and activate the "kick-off" switch. You won't necessarily need to replace the unit - just let one of the pros from Matt's Plumbing Services clean it up and reset it and you'll be good to go.

Leaks - Your garbage disposal isn't doing you any favors if it's leaking water under your sink. Not only will this boost up your water bill, but it can also cause damage to your fixtures or cabinetry. Because of the intensity of a garbage disposal operation, leaks can develop so it's important to take a peek at it periodically.

Odors - The purpose of garbage disposal is to chop up food particles and help them rinse down your drain and get out of your home. If they can't get out, they'll start to fester, rot and stink. If you're noticing awful smells coming out of your sink's drain, you need to have your disposal checked for clogs or other damage.

How Can I Prolong The Life Of My Garbage Disposal?

Avoid putting large items down the disposal as they may clog the drain or become stuck on the blades. The unit's manual from the manufacturer will often list foods that might be too much for the blades and motor to handle.

A simple but essential maintenance step is running water for 30 seconds before and after use. You should also cut items into small pieces and feed them slowly. This can help prevent issues and provide space for your disposal to do its job well.
