What are some simple maintenance tips?
Managing your garbage disposal is much easier when you are working with a qualified plumbing technician. We can make sure that your unit receives proper maintenance and help to educate you on ways to care for your system at home. Regularly scheduled service visits will eliminate the added worry of clogged drains and system malfunctions. During an inspection our plumbing specialists will carefully check every component and repair or replace worn or broken parts when necessary. Here are some simple things you can do to ensure that your garbage disposal continues to function properly:
- Keep harmful objects away from your unit. This may seem obvious, but even certain food waste, like cornhusks, popcorn kernels, bones, banana peels, and grease will seriously damage your disposal. When washing silverware make sure to be very careful, so you do not accidentally drop a fork or spoon into your system. Also, make sure that when you are disposing of proper waste materials they are small enough to avoid a clog.
- Run cold water for about a minute after the food waste has been discarded. This will help to keep certain components from overheating. Never use hot water, because it can cause certain fatty foods to clog your system.
- Toss a few ice cubes in your unit from time to time. Ice will help to discard of excess debris that builds up on the blades.
