Keeping the Old or In With the New?
We all know what a garbage disposal does. It magically takes the food from your plate and makes it disappear forever. But that process involves blades that are meant to grind that food very small so that it can make it’s way down the drain. Sometimes that just doesn’t work. Then you have a potential 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 Travelers Rest 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?
Disposals are pretty beefy, but you have to treat them right. You can’t just throw whatever you want in them and expect them to last forever. Putting certain types of food waste into the system can cause issues.
Garbage disposal clogs often occur when homeowners pour in:
- Fibrous materials (like carrot peels)
Most meat is too tough and stringy to do well in a garbage disposal. Fats and grease that are solid at room temperature are definitely a no-go. Imagine what happens when that stuff goes from liquid back to solid. A mess. The vegetable peels that you send down after that just get stuck to the sticky mess.
It goes without saying that regular trash should never go down the drain.
