What Not to Put Down a Garbage Disposal 

Unfortunately, many Raleigh homeowners are unaware of what should or should not be placed into a garbage disposal, what to do when it suddenly stops working, or worse, gets clogged up and won’t drain at all.

Items That Can Damage Your Garbage Disposal

  • Coffee grounds, grease, and eggshells are some of the most common culprits.
  • Fibrous food items like root vegetable skins often form clogs, some of which require garbage disposal repair
  • Tougher objects like bone or silverware can jam or even damage the machinery. 

If the item is capable of damaging the garbage disposal, it’s possible it'll harm your plumbing too. With enough damage, you may need to consider garbage disposal installation. 

How Do I Know If My Garbage Disposal Is Broken?

However, you may be uncertain if your garbage disposal is in need of repair. You can keep an eye out for any of the following signs that may indicate the need for a repair.

Common Signs You Need Garbage Disposal Repair

  1. Sink is draining slowly. Garbage disposals are frequently located immediately under the kitchen sink. Food waste will have to pass through the garbage disposal depending on which drain is being used. If the drain your garbage disposal is connected to drains slowly, a clog may have formed. Waiting too long may worsen the problem, or even produce mold and bacteria.
  2. Strange noises coming from the garbage disposal. If foreign objects like straws or silverware reach an active garbage disposal, they may damage delicate machinery like the blades. Your garbage disposal may not work effectively or even at all. This is often accompanied by a loud grating sound. Severe damage to the motor could turn a repair job into a more expensive replacement project.
  3. Mold or leaks under or near pipes. When your garbage disposal is damaged, leaks can form. Watch for water damage, or mold growth close to your garbage disposal system. Even if the garbage disposal seems to function normally, a broken seal will still leak.
  4. Your garbage disposal no longer runs. This is a surefire sign something is wrong, although sometimes the cause is electrical. Checking the disposal may not reveal the source of the problem, and attempting to find the problem could end up causing more damage. Sometimes it’s simply beyond repair. Our Raleigh plumbers can assist you with proper garbage disposal replacement, directing you towards brands and models well-suited to your needs.

Despite its small size, a malfunctioning garbage disposal can be dangerous. The blades are powerful enough to cause severe injury. If you think something is blocking the garbage disposal from working, do not attempt to place your hand in the drain to free it. Instead contact a professional Raleigh garbage disposal repair expert from our team.
