Garbage Disposal Clog

What is a Garbage Disposal Clog?

Garbage disposal clog is a common problem. A garbage disposal can be your kitchen’s best friend or worst enemy. While it is very good at chopping up food waste, when the disposal becomes clogged, it could become a problem.

A few ways to know if your garbage disposal is clogged include:

  • The garbage disposal is not running smoothly, meaning it frequently stops or doesn’t grind at all
  • The garbage disposal is louder than usual. Loud grinding noises and humming can mean the disposal is not tearing up waste when turned on
  • There is a bad smell coming from the garbage disposal due to a blockage of rotting food

How to prevent a clog in your garbage disposal

Garbage disposals make it easy and convenient to get rid of food waste. However, ease and convenience are compromised when the garbage disposal is not functioning properly.

Here are a few ways you can prevent a clog in your garbage disposal:

  • Do not flush cooking oils, grease, or stringy food products such as meat and cheese down the garbage disposal. Instead, discard these types of wastes in a trash can for garbage pickup.
  • Avoid flushing large items down the garbage disposal
  • Clean your garbage disposal regularly by turning it off and carefully removing it for deep cleaning and the clearing of any built-up debris.

Rescue Plumbing

Here at Rescue Plumbing, we get a lot of calls from customers who say that their garbage disposal is clogged. 

Did you know that most garbage disposals come with a hexagon-shaped tool called an Allen key?  This Allen key or Allen wrench is used to manually turn the garbage disposal when the motor is stuck to free the clog.  If the key does not do the trick, give us a call and we can help.

Our plumbers will be there with a fully equipped van. Each plumber will have brand new garbage disposals and drainage piping to connect them.

Schedule a free estimate and same-day service by calling (773) 799-8848. We will come to the rescue!
