How to Keep Your Garbage Disposal in Top Condition
After many years of experience in the garbage disposal repair business, we’ve seen firsthand what an impact proper operation, maintenance, and cleaning can have for the longevity and reliability of a garbage disposal. Here are our top tips for keeping your garbage disposal and your drains working their best:
- Don’t use your garbage disposal as a trash can. Remember all the food waste you put down your garbage disposal has to go through your pipes. You don’t want to overload the system and get a clog.
- Don’t put grease or fat down the garbage disposal. Grease, fat, and oil can adhere to the sides of your pipes and cause clogs as well as odor problems.
- Don’t put fibrous foods like banana peels, celery, and corn husks, or starchy foods like potato peels or rice down the garbage disposal. These kinds of foods can make your garbage disposal jam.
- Keep utensils and bones out of your garbage disposal as they could nick the blades.
- Clean your garbage disposal weekly by grinding up vinegar ice cubes or a lemon. Don’t use bleach or drain cleaner on your garbage disposal.
