Kitchens are sanctuaries. You cook there and it’s often where you gather for meals, or just to talk. That sanctuary can be ruined if you notice foul smells coming from your kitchen sink. It could mean food scraps and other materials have clogged your sink, or your garbage disposal is blocked or otherwise damaged and garbage disposal repair is required. Besides causing bad odors, a malfunctioning garbage disposal can create unsanitary conditions in the kitchen, and become a safety hazard. When your garbage disposal needs repair, you need to clear a clog in your sink, or require any other plumbing services such as main water line repair, give our team a call at 214-862-0225.

To ensure your garbage disposal stays in good repair, there are certain items you need to avoid placing in it. When excessive amounts of these items are placed in the disposal, it can cause unnecessary wear on the disposal itself, and often results in pipe clogs. Items include:

  • Fibrous food: Fibers from such foods as carrots, celery, onion skins, and corn husks can clog the pipes. Only small quantities of these items should go into the disposal along with a large amount of cold water.
  • Starches: Excessive starches from foods like potatoes, rice, and pasta, harden and clog the trap.
  • Oil and grease: An oil and grease clog will slow down the garbage disposal. Never dispose of oil and grease in the garbage disposal or kitchen sink. Throw oil and grease in the trash.
  • Egg shells: When egg shells get broken down, they become sandy and gritty, and have trouble flushing down the pipes, which can create clogs.

Moreover, before running the garbage disposal make sure it is clear of utensils use. Both the disposal and utensils can get seriously damaged. 

If you are looking to replace a worn or damaged garbage disposal, along with repairs, our team provides expert garbage disposal installation. You may need to replace an old disposal or you may want to connect one to your current system. An ideal time to add a garbage disposal is when you are updating your plumbing during a kitchen remodel.
