It’s pretty easy to take your garbage disposal for granted… until it breaks, that is! Don’t do something crazy like put your hand at risk if your garbage disposal begins making strange noises or stops working completely – let us take a look for you.

Garbage Disposal Repair Tips

Despite what you may think, your garbage disposal cannot process everything. Even the very best units can start being faulty or stop working entirely if the wrong substances or materials are put down the drain. Here’s a quick list of things to avoid putting in your garbage disposal:

  • Pulpy, high-cellulose materials like wood chips or sawdust
  • Meats, skin bones, or animal fats
  • Exceptionally large or hard food items
  • Grease, fats, and oils
  • Fruits and vegetables with thick rinds or skin (like lemons and limes)

If your garbage disposal stops working, do not try to fix it on your own. These units are powered by high velocity electric motors and can cause serious damage to an inexperienced hand in a shockingly short period of time. You’re much better off contacting on of the experts here at Bruce Solomon Plumbing, we’ll help you get your garbage disposal running again!
