The garbage disposal is one of the most used appliances in the home, as well as one of the most misused. Many people shovel their food down the garbage disposal which later ends up clogging it. The garbage disposal is actually designed for light food residue. In fact, many of Winters Home Services plumbing services include garbage disposal repair.
The kitchen drain can easily get clogged when mass amounts of food are released into the garbage disposal. This can be one of the most frustrating situations for homeowners, but the plumbers at Winters Home Services are professionals at kitchen drain cleaning. We will repair and replace your damaged garbage disposal to get your sink working correctly. Let’s take a look at some common mishaps that lead to a clogged garbage disposal
Objects Shoved in Disposal
From silverware to large pieces of food, objects often get jammed in the garbage disposal. With soapy water covering the disposal, sometimes it can be challenging to see what gets caught. Never try to remove the object or it will get stuck even further. Contact Winters Home Services immediately to sufficiently remove the object.
Clogs from Grease & Dirt
Clogs can occur from a number of items including grease, dirt, grime, etc. Our plumbers can clean the clog using safe products to unclog your drain. We may need to clean the P trap or snake the line if the clog is severe.
Garbage disposals automatically turn off when they are overloaded in order to inhibit the machine from getting too warm. Your first step should be to hit the reset button but when this doesn’t work, call Winters Home Services.
Garbage Disposal Installation Services
A garbage disposal offers a nice convenience to your kitchen and cuts down on cleaning time. When food is thrown into the trash it can lead a foul a smell so incorporating a garbage disposal into the kitchen is the perfect alternative.
If your existing disposal clogs often, is noisy, leaks or does not operate correctly, it may be time for a replacement. Installations should only be performed by plumbers as the installation requires both plumbing and electrical connections.
