Many of our plumbing service calls involve garbage disposals. They may be one of the most misused appliances in any home. Few people realize that garbage disposals are only designed to handle light food residue that is rinsed from plates and cooking utensils before they go into the dishwasher.
Large quantities of food and debris going into disposals can overwhelm them and clog the kitchen sink drain. Few things are more frustrating than a kitchen sink that won’t drain. Our professionals will repair or replace broken disposals and get your sink back to normal in no time.
Cleaning your Garbage Disposal
1.Fill garbage disposal with ice cubes from freezer 2.Add 1 cup of rock salt (ice cream salt) 3.Cover opening with stopper..do not run water. 4.Start the disposer and let it run until grinding noise stops. (about 5 seconds) 5.Remove the stopper and flush unit with cold water while running for 10 seconds. This will sharpen the grinding chamber and removes residual crud from the interior!
