Garbage Disposal Repair in Charlotte, Gastonia, & Rock Hill
Garbage disposals are commonly misused. They are designed to handle light food and residue, and will easily become clogged when overwhelmed with too much food waste.To help your garbage disposal enjoy years of trouble-free operation, do not put the following items down your drain or disposal:
No Grease. Never pour grease down your drains or into your disposal. Grease will collect and solidify, blocking plumbing fixtures and preventing the disposal from operating in a correct manner. Additionally, pouring grease down the drain pollutes the environment.
No Starchy or Stringy Materials. Starchy and stringy materials can also keep a garbage disposal from operating correctly. Fibrous foods, like rhubarb or celery, wrap around the blades and prevent the disposal from working properly. Starchy foods like potatoes accumulate around the disposal blades and degrade its efficiency.
No Pasta, Rice, and Eggshells. While these foods may seem disposal friendly, they are not. Rice and pasta absorb water and continually expand. Eventually, this constant expansion will block your plumbing and prevent your disposal from doing its job. Eggshells have a membrane that wraps around the blade of the disposal, prohibiting it from efficiently disposing of food waste.
