Should We Repair or Replace the Disposal?
Garbage disposals aren’t very glamorous, but they perform an essential service in our Piedmont SC homes. They take the food that we are finished with and whisk it down the drain. But sometimes that process gets interrupted by clogs or blades that no longer turn. That can lead to a big mess.
Greenville Plumbing Pros will be happy to look at that broken disposal to see if it needs a simple reset or if it’s better to just start new. Give us a call in Piedmont to set up a service appointment at 864-362-2955. Get the great service you deserve.
Is Your Garbage Disposal On It’s Last Leg?
Garbage disposals tend to last a long time if you care for them properly. There are definitely some things that just can’t go through the disposal. They just can’t.
Here are some items that you should not put through your disposal:
- Fibrous materials (like carrot peels)
Meat seems like an odd thing to have on the list, but it’s kind of tough and sometimes turns into strings when put through the disposal. That means the blades slow down or stop and the motor can overheat. Fatty substances that are solid at room temperature may seem OK, but once they turn from liquid back to solid, you have a gross mess in the appliance. The next items you run through the disposal will just stick to that mess. Vegetable and fruit peels can do the same things that stringy meat can do.
Regular kitchen trash should never go in the disposal.
