Garbage Disposal

The Garbage Disposal Experts of Chicago

Keep Your Kitchen Pipes In Top Working Order

A hugely useful feature of the modern plumbing system, garbage disposals help to make life in the kitchen both that much easier and convenient. With the simple flip of a switch, you can dispose of any food scraps while cooking or cleaning up after a meal cutting down on the amount of smelly waste in your garbage can. Food scraps are bound to slip down the kitchen sink drain at some point, but a garbage disposal can help protect your pipes from blockages by breaking everything down into smaller pieces. Keeping your garbage disposal in top shape is still incredibly important and it’s always best to contact a specialist for regular servicing or if it seems like your garbage disposal unit isn’t working properly.

If you’re in need of garbage disposal repair or installation, contact us to have an expert come out and fix your garbage disposal or install a brand new one. At Advantage Plumbing, we know the ins and outs of these units, and can assist you in selecting the right unit for your home and sink, or we’ll help locate the source of your garbage disposal issues if your unit is not moving quickly enough or has stopped functioning altogether. Give our team a call as soon as you notice trouble with your system, or if you’ve decided you cannot go without a garbage disposal in your kitchen any longer.

The key with keeping any system in top working order is to always treat the system with care, and your kitchen sink disposal is no exception. You want to be sure to only be disposing of soft food items and still be throwing things like plastic paper, or animal bones in a normal trash can. You can also avoid costly servicing or drain blockage by avoiding using the disposal for fibrous foods such as celery, squash, or broccoli as these types of foods can wrap around inner workings of your disposal and cause the motor to struggle. You can also avoid drain clogs by disposing of things that expand when they soak up water like rice or pasta. Other items to avoid pouring down any drain would be especially fatty oils or grease as they tend to coat the inner lining of pipes and gather debris.
