Signs You Need Garbage Disposal Repair

As long as you install and operate it correctly, you can expect your garbage disposal to work reliably for years to come, even with heavy use. Still, be on the lookout for these signs that a repair or replacement is imminent:

  • Poor performance: If the disposal operates feebly or refuses to turn on at all, you need a professional’s help to get it working again.
  • Extra loud grinding: First, look down the drain with a flashlight to ensure no foreign objects have fallen inside. If you see any, unplug the fixture before attempting to retrieve them. If the loud grinding is unexplained, call a plumber for help.
  • Leaks: Regularly check for water damage under the kitchen sink. If you find puddles or a soft cabinet floor, you need a plumber to fix the leak and stop the damage.
  • Frequent jams: It may be a sign that the garbage disposal may be nearing the end of its useful life span if you find yourself pressing the reset button regularly.

Are you having any of these problems? If so, contact Caffi Services right away to schedule garbage disposal repair.

How to Prevent Garbage Disposal Problems

With a few simple operating and maintenance tips, you can prolong the life of your garbage disposal. Here’s what to do:

  • Be careful about what you put down the drain. Cooking grease, coffee grounds, hard seeds and pits, fibrous vegetables, and starchy foods can damage the blades or cause a plumbing clog.
  • Run cold water while operating the disposal. Then, keep the water flowing for 10 to 15 seconds after shutting it off.
  • Grind ice and citrus rinds occasionally to clean the blades and leave a fresh scent in your kitchen sink.
  • Hire a plumber to clean the kitchen drain every year or two as a preventive measure.

The Importance of Professional Garbage Disposal Service

Unless you have the proper tools, patience, and extensive plumbing knowledge, we don’t recommend servicing or replacing the garbage disposal yourself. Feel free to perform troubleshooting tips, such as resetting the disposal and unjamming it with an Allen wrench, but leave more in-depth tasks to a knowledgeable plumber.

The team at Caffi Services can help with everything from fixing disposal leaks to sharpening the blades to replacing the entire unit. We carry out every task with careful precision and have years of experience to back us up. We can also recommend installing a particular type and size of disposal based on your family’s needs.
