Efficient Garbage Disposal For Healthy Living

When speaking about garbage disposal it more commonly refers to an electrically powered device that is installed under kitchen sinks between the drain and trap. This unit is responsible for shredding waste food so that is small enough to pass through the plumbing.

Proper Garbage Disposal Tips and TechniquesEfficient-Garbage-Disposal-For-Healthy-Living-Junk-King-Marin.jpg

As is the case with most electrical devices and equipment, regular and thorough maintenance is required for them to function properly. So here are a few useful tips that homeowners can apply to keep their garbage disposals working properly and efficiently.

One of the most essential tips that homeowners could utilize is to use garbage disposals often. Frequently using your garbage disposal reduces the chances of rust , corrosion and build up. In other words “If you don’t use it you lose it.”

Persons should also ensure they don’t overwork units by placing large pieces/amounts of food down the drain at once. Instead they should cut up larger items into much smaller pieces and only throw down small amounts of food at a time rather than everything all at once.

Another very important thing persons should keep in mind is that they shouldn’t turn the unit off until they are sure that everything has been thoroughly chopped and washed away. Just to be on the safe side when turning off the actual disposal pour a little dish soap into the drain and allow the water to run for about 10 seconds to make sure any remaining bits are flushed out of the pipes.

Once these basic tips are upheld they can aid in keeping disposal units well maintained and in good working condition for a very long time. Nevertheless in many homes there are some practices that householders adopt when using their garbage disposal that complicate its smooth operation eventually leading to malfunction. Here are some of the practices that householders are urged to abstain from or to discontinue.

One of the most common things that persons do that can cause an issue with disposal units are to throw foods with strings and peels down the drain .Foods like celery, artichokes, asparagus, lettuce, corn husks, carrots, onion skins and potato peels are all stringy and have the ability to wrap around disposal blades causing the motor to malfunction. Therefore when dealing with these kinds of items it’s better that they be thrown into the trash or compost receptacle.

It is also extremely important that persons remember not to put fat, oil or grease down into disposals. This is strictly forbidden as these can coat blades and make them less effective. They can also contribute to clogs which cause blockage and stink so instead pour or place any fat, oils or grease into a separate container and dispose of it with the regular trash.

Most people think they can get away with putting whatever they want down garbage disposals as long as you throw some drain cleaner down after it however this is where they are wrong. These chemicals don’t actually work but corrode the blades and pipes within the unit .

So persons should be extra mindful of what they put into their disposals to avoid the expense and inconvenience. If you want to clean your garbage disposal just use a small amount of dish soap and cold water. This along with regular maintenance and frequent use should ensure that units work well for a long time to come.  Contact us for more information.
