Martinsville Garbage Disposal Service 


Trustworthy Plumbers Serving Your Community Since 1992

Garbage disposals are a top seller in modern kitchens. Homebuyers looking for their dream kitchen would never think to buy a home without one. Contrary to popular belief, garbage disposals don’t chop food into small pieces. They grind food into pieces small enough to be mixed with water and transformed into a slurry that’s safe for your pipes. One of the most common problems homeowners can face with their garbage disposal is clogs. Clogged or jammed disposals can quickly become a messy and frustrating problem. Next to clogs and jams, disposal damage is another common issue. Eating utensils, larger bones, or non-food items can damage a garbage disposal and burn out the motor. Some foods and food byproducts, like grease and fat, can wreak havoc on the components of your garbage disposal. 

Garbage Disposal Repair and Replacement 

Many home and business owners know what it’s like to be faced with a clogged sink caused by a jammed garbage disposal or a garage disposal plagued with a loud hum caused by a burnt motor. When a garbage disposal starts malfunctioning, the cause of the problems will impact how much of a mess the broken disposal will be for your kitchen. Depending on the cause of the issues with your system, a broken garbage disposal can cause backups in your sink and prevent your dishwasher from working properly.

Tips to Prevent Garbage Disposal Damage


The best thing you can do for your garbage disposal is to prevent it from needing repair. Here are a few tips to prevent your garbage disposal from becoming damaged. As discussed earlier, there are several ways your disposal can be damaged. 

Here are the best ways to avoid them: 

  1. Never allow food into your dishwasher because the plumbing for your disposal and dishwasher are connected. If the dishwasher clogs and pushes food into your disposal, it can harm its components. 
  2. Hot water is the enemy of your disposal. Use cold water to help the motor stay cool. Doing this will extend the life of your system. 
  3. Certain foods can make your disposal work too hard. These foods are usually too hard to grind, like uncooked rice, dried beans, or bones. Keep these items out of your disposal because they will damage the unit.
  4. If your system starts running slowly, don’t solve the problem with caustic chemical solutions to break up the garbage or eliminate odors coming from your disposal. If the smell is lingering, try a holistic cleaning solution. If the problem persists, contact our Martinsville garbage disposal experts.
