Food Waste

Garbage disposals are useful for efficient food waste disposal. However, avoid pouring certain items like grease, eggshells, coffee grounds, or fibrous foods into it to prevent drain clogs. If a clog occurs, contact a professional plumber for repairs.

Avoid Fibrous Foods

Fibrous foods like celery, banana peels, or corn husks should not go down garbage disposals because they can wrap around disposal blades, leading to clogs and potential damage. It is best to dispose of fibrous foods in the compost or trash to avoid any issues.

Frequently Asked Questions

You have questions and we have answers!

We understand the importance of properly functioning garbage disposals in households. It is generally worth it to repair a garbage disposal as it can save money compared to replacing the entire unit.

As a professional plumbing company, we have extensive experience repairing various types of garbage disposals. In most cases our technicians can diagnose and fix common issues such as clogs, jammed blades, or electrical problems to restore functionality efficiently and cost-effectively.

In the case that a garbage disposal is not repairable, we are able to install a new garbage disposal the same day! Rescue Plumbing offers free verbal estimates Monday through Saturday from 9am – 5pm.

The easiest way to fix a garbage disposal is by first checking if it’s jammed and using a hex key to manually rotate the blades. If that doesn’t work, pressing the reset button on the bottom of the unit or checking the circuit breaker can often resolve simple issues. If these do not work, contact our friendly staff today!

We generally advise replacing garbage disposals every 5-7 years, although a well-maintained garbage disposal can last anywhere between 8 to 15 years, depending on factors such as usage, maintenance, and the quality of the unit.

Regular cleaning, avoiding putting excessive strain on the unit, and addressing minor issues promptly can help extend its lifespan.
