Garbage Disposal Repair and Installation in San Mateo, CA

The garbage disposal in your kitchen is a useful and practical tool that helps you reduce food waste in your trash cans and associated odors. As helpful as this appliance is, it also isn’t without its problems. Garbage disposals are appliances that often get misused and overlooked until they stop working. When this happens, the first thought that most people have is, “Oh, no! Now I have to go out and spend money I don’t have on a new garbage disposal.” While it is true that there are some problems that can’t be repaired, the majority of disposal problems can be fixed with no trouble and for usually less money than you thought.

Why Do Garbage Disposals Break?

The disposal in your kitchen is an appliance that is used every single day. Because so many people do not use the disposal as it was intended to be operated, it tends to experience the effects of wear and tear faster than any other appliance in the home. We see garbage disposals breakdown often because homeowners put too much food in the disposal at one time, grind up the wrong types of food, and fail to clean the disposal properly to avoid clogs and jammed blades.

The worst thing you can do to your garbage disposal is to clean it using store bought, chemical cleaners. These cleaners are ineffective at cleaning disposals and can actually corrode the inside of the appliance and your pipes; using cold water and a small amount of dish detergent while running the disposal will adequately clean the disposal and get rid of small, food particles that often lead to jams and blockages.
