Garbage Disposal Repair

Garbage Disposal Repair in Raleigh Starts with Proper Maintenance

While you may not often think about your kitchen’s garbage disposal, it’s a useful and hardworking appliance. It’s designed to safely flush small quantities of food residue through your plumbing. Unfortunately, many homeowners are unaware of what should or should not be placed into a garbage disposal, or what to do when it suddenly stops working, or worse, gets clogged up and won’t drain at all.

Coffee grounds, grease, and eggshells are some of the most common culprits. These and 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 they’re capable of damaging the garbage disposal, it’s possible they’ll harm your plumbing too. With enough damage, a better option may be garbage disposal installation. You’ll have to look into garbage disposal replacement rather than repair or maintenance services.

In the meantime, we’ll share some tips on how to avoid clogs and the need for garbage disposal repair. 

Common Signs You Need Garbage Disposal Repair

  1. Sink is draining slowly. Kitchen garbage disposals are frequently located immediately under the 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 garbage disposal 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.
