Garbage Disposals

Garbage Disposal Repair & Installation

Your garbage disposal is easily one of the most useful appliances in your kitchen, if not your entire home. Garbage disposals make cleanup easier and faster — when something goes wrong, you’ll quickly notice how much it complicates your day. If you’re experiencing issues with your garbage disposal, call on the experts at Blanco AC, Electrical & Plumbing for fast, quality repairs.

Signs Your Garbage Disposal Needs Repairs

While a full appliance breakdown is virtually impossible to miss, your garbage disposal will typically show signs that it needs to be repaired long before then. Keep a lookout for these symptoms of a problem with your garbage disposal:

  • Leaking
  • Only humming when on
  • Foul smells
  • Water backing up
  • Water won’t drain even after it runs
  • Smoking

Because you use your garbage disposal on a daily basis, you’re attuned to its normal functions. You’ll notice when something is off whether the garbage disposal is clogged or just isn’t running like it’s supposed to. Call the team at Blanco AC if you suspect a problem with your disposal system.

What Can You Put Down a Garbage Disposal?

Although garbage disposals are a convenient way to get rid of food scraps quickly, they aren’t a catchall for all of the waste in your kitchen. Inadvertently sending things that shouldn’t go down the garbage disposal down the drain is one of the leading causes of a garbage disposal not working properly. So what can go down a garbage disposal?

You should only put food waste down your disposal, but there are certain things you should never put down your garbage disposal, including:

  • Coffee grounds
  • Pasta, rice and bread
  • Egg and shellfish shells
  • Animal bones
  • Nuts, pits and seeds
  • Onion layers (not diced onions)
  • Stringy, fibrous fruits and vegetables (celery, corn husks, banana peels, etc.)
  • Potato peels
  • Grease, oil and fat
  • Non-food items

If you’re not sure whether an item can go down the disposal, it’s just as easy to err on the side of caution and throw it away. You can also refer to the list above to remind yourself what’s safe and what’s not. Simply understanding what can and can’t go down to your disposal can save you the hassle and expense of repairs in the future.
