How a Garbage Disposal Works

Garbage disposals are responsible for grinding up food particles that fall down the sink. They ensure no large chunks of food enter the drain pipe, which could result in a clog. If they get broken or damaged, they will not be able to run effectively. Food is pushed into a shredding chamber by the flow of water from the faucet. In the chamber, sharp blades quickly shred and break up the food particles, allowing them to flow down the drain.

Problems Your Garbage Disposal May Experience

Over time, garbage disposals may wear down. If they turn on but fail to grind up food particles, it may be that the blades are stuck. We can inspect the system to determine the issue, and perform necessary repairs.

Garbage disposal blades may become stuck on a variety of materials, including:

  • Plastic twist ties
  • Staples
  • Coins
  • Hard chunks of food
  • Stringy food

Foods that could cause your garbage disposal to become stuck include celery, apple seeds, and eggshells. Furthermore, items such as plastic bread ties, pop-tabs, and scouring pads could get stuck in the blades of your garbage disposal, causing it to malfunction. It is important to seek professional assistance as soon as you notice a problem. If you wait to seek help, the drain may become backed up, leading to water damage and expensive repairs.

When Should I Replace My Garbage Disposal?

In some cases, simple repairs may not be enough. If your garbage disposal is older and consistently gets stuck or needs a lot of minor repairs, it may be necessary to install an entirely new one. This can provide many benefits. It will help the system function more efficiently, which will help keep your drains clear. This will help you save money on repairs and other issues in the future. 

Furthermore, a newer system will last longer, allowing you to enjoy a functioning garbage disposal for many years. We will discuss your options and help you choose a garbage disposal that best meets your needs. Once you pick a model, our team will install it in a safe and timely manner.
