Garbage Disposal Repair Services

Garbage disposals have a pretty easy job, but they can develop problems that require repairs. One of the most common issues with a garbage disposal is a clog. If you are not careful about what goes into the disposal, it can become clogged with food particles, coffee grounds, and other debris. The disposal may also become clogged if it is not used regularly.

What Items Should Not Go Down Your Garbage Disposal?

It is important to be careful about what goes down the disposal. Foods that are fibrous, stringy, or expand in water, such as celery, potato peels, pasta, and rice, should never be put in the disposal. Some other items that should never go in the disposal include coffee grounds, eggshells, bones, and grease. If you have a problem with your disposal, we offer professional garbage disposal repair in San Diego.

What is The Lifespan of a Garbage Disposal?

Garbage disposals have a limited lifespan of about 10-15 years. If your disposal is at the end of its life, or you don’t have a garbage disposal and are interested in the convenience and environmental benefits, we offer garbage disposal installation in San Diego. A new disposal can make your life easier and make your kitchen more efficient.

How to Clean & Care for Your Garbage Disposal

Garbage disposals are designed to grind up food particles, so any food that goes into the disposal will be broken down and flushed down the drain. However, the disposal does not clean itself. It is important to be diligent about cleaning the disposal to prevent odors and keep it running efficiently. The good news is that cleaning the disposal is fast and easy.

Here are a few tips for cleaning and caring for your garbage disposal:

  • Run the disposal regularly: If you don’t use the disposal for a while, it can become clogged with food particles and other debris. Running the disposal regularly will help prevent clogs and keep it clean.
  • Use cold water: Run cold water through the disposal before, during, and after using it. The cold water helps harden food particles so that they can be ground up and flushed down the drain.
  • Use a cleaner: You can use a commercial cleaner, or make your own cleaner with vinegar and baking soda. Pour the cleaner down the drain, run the disposal, and then rinse with cold water.
