The garbage disposal 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. That’s why so many of our plumbing service calls involve clogged kitchen drains and garbage disposals.
Over time, large quantities of food and debris going into disposals can overwhelm the pipe and clog the kitchen sink drain. Few things are more frustrating than a kitchen sink that won’t drain, but our plumbers are experts at kitchen drains. We’ll also repair or replace your broken disposal and get your sink back to normal in no time.
Take it from a plumber, use your disposal as little as possible. It’s not your actual disposal that you should be worried about, it’s the food that accumulates in your kitchen drain line that will ruin your day. Keep this in mind, most of the food that you put down your disposal actually stays in the line. It DOES NOT roll down the line and leave your house. It sits in the pipe and eventually composts into a jelly like sludge. Gross huh? Too much sludge turns into a clogged kitchen drain line. My advice, scape plates into the trash can, rinse the rest into the sink.
Don’t pour grease or other fats down the disposal. Don’t put egg shells, any kink of fruit or vegetable peelings, coffee grounds, grains, banana peels, carrots or celery into your disposal. You will clog your drain line.
******* Be sure to run plenty of water while using the disposal *******
If your disposal does clog or leak, give us a call. We can get you back into service within a few hours.
