Garbage Disposal Installation, Repair & Maintenance in Mission Viejo
When they are working as they should, we often take our garbage disposals for granted. We rely on this appliance to properly eliminate food waste from our sinks and ensure that they remain free of debris and in sanitary condition. When it breaks down, it is important that you call a professional plumber to perform the necessary repairs. At Always Plumbing Services, we offer same-day services so that the time you’re without a garbage disposal is minimal. Your satisfaction is our priority, which is why we offer affordable, upfront pricing and financing options should you need a brand-new unit.
Common Garbage Disposal Problems
Although it has the word garbage in its name, a garbage disposal does not actually get rid of all waste. In other words, you cannot just put anything down your drain and expect your garbage disposal to eliminate it. To help prevent unnecessary buildup from accumulating, it’s important to know what should go in your trash can and what can be put down the disposal.
For maximum efficiency and to maintain your garbage disposal’s lifespan, we recommend that you only put organic materials down your drain. And, it goes without saying, never stick your hand down the disposal while it is powered on!
To keep it working properly, our Laguna Hills garbage disposal technicians recommend that you avoid putting the following items down your disposal:
- Inorganic material
- Any fatty substance
- Ground coffee
- Potato skins
- Any fibrous food (like celery)
It’s also important that you never overstuff your garbage disposal, so be sure to watch how much you’re putting down it at one time.
Should you need repairs, we will dispatch an experienced technician who can inspect your unit and perform necessary fixes on the spot. It is our mission to restore your kitchen to proper working order as soon as we possibly can.
Maintenance Tips from Our Expert Plumbers
While repairs or replacement will eventually be necessary, there are things you can do to prolong the life of your garbage disposal.
- Using cold water when you run your disposal
- Using dish soap when you run your disposal
- Running it often to prevent corrosion of the blades and maintain your disposal’s ability function
If your unit begins to smell foul, we recommend using lemon or orange slices to give your kitchen a nice citrus scent. You can also use frozen vinegar, which will kill any bacteria as it is ground up. If you leave baking soda in your drain and return to rinse it, any awful smells should be eliminated.
In the event you need a new garbage disposal, our technicians are extremely capable of helping you select one that will best meet your needs.
