Tips for Maintaining Your Garbage Disposal

Because these mechanisms are used to chop up food waste before it is washed down the drain, many people think that garbage disposals can handle just about anything. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, garbage disposals are only designed to dispose of certain items and improper use can lead to breakdowns and other problems.

Here are some of the best and easiest ways you can ensure that your garbage disposal lasts a long time and works as efficiently as possible:

  • Always run plenty of cold water when using the disposal. This helps to ensure that food waste flows easily and any remnants of grease do not become lodged in the drains.
  • Only use your disposal to chop up soft, edible items. Avoid running hard, fibrous foods, such as egg shells, celery, onion skin, corn husks, etc. through the unit.
  • Never put any non-food items down the garbage disposal (ice is acceptable), as this can damage the blades and cause problems.
  • Clean your garbage disposal by putting rock salt and ice cubes down the drain at the same time. Avoid using harsh chemical cleaners as this can ultimately cause damage to your pipes.
  • Never place your hands, fingers, etc. down the garbage disposals. Disposal blades are extremely sharp so, for your safety, never reach down the sink even when the disposal is not on.

Even when the proper steps are taken to avoid problems, garbage disposal issues can still arise. If you’re experiencing problems with your unit, including a disposal that won’t turn on or fails to properly chop up food waste, give Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® a call. Our highly-trained and experienced technicians can help you get to the root of the problem. We’ll provide you with honest recommendations and make any necessary repairs or replacements as quickly and efficiently as possible.
