Garbage Disposal Installation in Mooresville
If you’re like us, you might feel like you can’t do without your garbage disposal. Anything that makes cleaning up after dinner easier is a good thing in our book! When you have a garbage disposal, you don’t end up with as many food scraps in your trash can. That means fewer kitchen odors, and fewer pests checking out your garbage in the middle of the night. At Morris-Jenkins, we love putting in new garbage disposals in Mooresville. We’re great at helping you choose the right one for your house and installing it so you won’t have any problems.
Is There Something Wrong With Your Garbage Disposal?
There are only a few things that can go wrong with a garbage disposal. Garbage disposals can be prone to leaks, clogs, and jams. Sometimes, the appliance will stop turning on or it’ll make loud noises. If any of these are happening, you’ll probably be on the phone with a plumber right away.
If your garbage disposal isn’t turning on, make sure you check a few things first. See if it’s plugged in. You’d be surprised how often a plug gets knocked out. Sometimes garbage disposals can cause the breaker to trip, too. If that’s not the problem, it’s something bigger. Sometimes repairs are easy. But we’ll let you know if it would be better to just install a new one.
Garbage Disposal Installation vs Repairs
When a garbage disposal is used every day for 10 years, it can start to get broken down. One of the most common things that can happen is a crack in the disposal. Cracks aren’t fixable, so you’ll wanna plan on replacing it.
Replacements are usually the best choice when the garbage disposal needs frequent repairs, keeps getting clogged, or doesn’t grind up food very well anymore. Hopefully, you won’t need a replacement until you’ve had your disposal for 10-15 years and it’s served you well.
What NOT to Put Down Your New Garbage Disposal
We’re not here to tell you what to do with your own belongings. But we’ve seen a lot of garbage disposals break down over the years and we know what makes them throw in the towel. Usually, problems can be traced back to something that probably shouldn’t have gone down the disposal. We’ve put together a short list of things that you should keep out of the disposal if you want your new appliance to last another 10 years:
- Stringy items: some fruits and vegetables are a little more fibrous. Asparagus, green beans, and even melted cheese can be a problem.
- Thin items: You may think it’s fine to put carrot peelings into the garbage disposal. But since they’re long and thin, they can slip right past the blades and get trapped in your pipes.
- Hard items: Some things are just too tough for your garbage disposal to handle. Chicken bones, fruit pits, and seafood shells are just a few examples.
- Expandable items: Pasta, rice, and oats grow when they’re wet. They’ll cause clogs if they go through the disposal.
