Garbage Disposal Repair

Need A Garbage Disposal Repaired?

You Googled “garbage disposal repairs near me” and BOOM! There we were.

Chances are, if you were doing that kind of research, your garbage disposal is already showing signs of damage, and you need professional help. Not sure if you need garbage disposal repairs? Here are some common warning signs that something has gone wrong:

  • Your garbage disposal is making weird noises. Does your garbage disposal hum, grind, or rattle? It might be jammed or the blades might be misaligned.
  • Your garbage disposal is leaking. Leaks under your kitchen sink could either be caused by pipes or by your garbage disposal.
  • Your kitchen sink keeps clogging. If your garbage disposal gets clogged with even small things, it might not be the best capacity for your sink, or something might be going bad with the device itself.
  • Your kitchen sink has a bad odor. If your garbage disposal isn’t properly cutting up scraps, rotting food will build up in your sink drain, and this can even attract pests!
  • Your garbage disposal won’t even turn on. If your garbage disposal has the electrical connections it needs but it still isn’t turning on, it might have a bad motor instead.

Common Garbage Disposal Problems

While it’s never fun to have problems with your garbage disposal, sometimes things just start to wear down. Certain issues are more common than others for garbage disposals, such as:

  • Foreign materials like glass or metal that can cause the disposal to jam or fail.
  • Rust within the unit that can cause the motor to fail (it seizes in place).
  • Rust that can cause the disposal to leak into the cabinet below.

Fortunately, our plumbers are familiar with all these problems and more! When you call us out, your plumber will carefully inspect your unit to determine the exact cause of your problems. Then, with your permission, we can get to work on any repairs needed to get your disposal back to the daily grind!

How to Prevent Garbage Disposal Damage

Your garbage disposal is great at making food scraps disappear, but did you know there are certain food items that should never go down your disposal?

Never put these down the drain:

  • Eggshells
  • Stringy vegetables
  • Coffee grounds
  • Bones
  • Nuts

In order to do everything you can to prevent your garbage disposal from breaking, it’s best that you don’t put any of these things down it, and try to never overload it. If you have a full plate of food, you should scrape most of it into the trash before washing it off so you don’t risk clogging up your disposal.
