Garbage Disposal Repair & Replacement

schedule now!

Your garbage disposal is one of the most frequently used appliances in your kitchen. Homeowners rely on them frequently to conveniently dispose of messy food scraps and uneaten food. With proper care and maintenance, the average household garbage disposal should last up to 10-12 years. However, if not properly maintained, your garbage disposal can break down and cause drain blockages.

It’s important to realize that your garbage disposal should not be treated as equal to a trash can. Putting certain foods in the disposal can result in blockages or damage to the unit. Some common foods that should be avoided are starchy foods, such as rice and pasta, potato and cucumber peels and very fibrous foods like celery, artichoke hearts, corn husks, etc. Placing these foods in the trash or compost bin can help extend the life of your disposal and help you avoid plumbing costs.

Despite our best efforts, inevitably there will be a time when your garbage disposal needs service. Frequent clogging, despite proper use, having to reset it frequently, continuous odors coming from the unit despite cleaning it, dull blades, or leaks that can’t be fixed.
