Benefits Of A Garbage Disposal Installation

As people become more environmentally conscious, one area they focus on is the amount of trash they put out into the landfills. One way to do that is by installing a garbage disposal in the kitchen. While some people scoff at the idea of installing one of these devices, consider the following benefits.

Why Did My Garbage Disposal Stop Working?

Garbage disposals are one of the most useful items within a kitchen. They are also pretty easy to take for granted until they stop working. Our first priority when we show up to a garbage disposal repair calls in Orange County is to determine whether or not the garbage disposal is really the source of the problem. Connected to every garbage disposal is a drainage pipe. If the pipe beyond the garbage disposal becomes clogged, the water will not be able to drain. Those clogs may lead you to believe that your garbage disposal is broken, when in fact it is actually a clog in the pipe. If the garbage disposal motor is running, then it is likely a clog. The good news is, even if you have a clog, we can help you fix the problem. Pristine Plumbing, Inc. has the best prices on drain cleaning in Orange County.

If you cannot hear your garbage disposal motor running, then it is likely an issue with the actual garbage disposal itself and not a drain clog. There are a lot of things that could cause the garbage disposal to quit working. There could be an item jamming the disposal which keeps the blades from rotating. It could also be an electrical issue or even a mechanical failure. The good news is, when you hire the right garbage disposal company, it is relatively inexpensive to repair or even replace your garbage disposal.

Effective Food Waste Management

Intead of throwing food waste into the trash where it rots and stinks up your kitchen, garbage disposals make it easier and healthier to dispose of food waste and keep your kitchen smelling clean.

Reduced Environmental Impact

Imagine reducing the amount of waste you put into the landfills by 20%. Dispensing of food waste via a garbage disposal instead of putting it in the garbage is an ideal way to reduce the amount of trash that goes out of your house. Also, in some instances, when food scraps are put into a garbage disposal, that waste is rerouted and turned into renewable energy or fertilizer instead of going into a landfill.

Protects Plumbing

If you continue putting food scraps down your drains, it eventually leads to clogs, which can require the help of a plumber to fix. Using a garbage disposal reduces the chance of clogs and protects your plumbing in the process.

How To Prevent a Broken Garbage Disposal

The garbage disposal may be one of the most important appliances in your kitchen. That’s why it’s vital to take good care of it to ensure that it performs like you need it to for years to come!

Here are a few tips to take proper care of your garbage disposal and keep your kitchen sink drain sink in pristine condition:

  • When grinding food waste, run plenty of cold water. Warm water will cause fats to congeal and jam up your unit.
  • Try not to put bones, pits, shells or other tough materials in your disposal. They can damage the blades and the machine itself.
  • Don't put grease or oil down your sink drain - this can cause dangerous clogs and overheating. Dispose of oil in the trash and wipe greasy pans with a paper towel before washing.
  • Never grind coffee grounds, tea bags or other stringy wet sludge. These materials have a tendency to become tangled in the disposal's blades.
  • If you have problems with odors from your garbage disposal unit, you can run a mix of water and lemon juice down the sink for a few minutes after using it.
  • You can grind ice in the garbage disposal to keep the blades clean and sharp.
