When your Garbage Disposal stops working it can be a major inconvenience if you cannot use your kitchen sink.
Although your garbage disposal often goes unnoticed in your kitchen it can really cause problems when it stops functioning or gets clogged.
There are several reasons your garbage disposal may not be working and in some cases it will need to be replaced.
At Premier Plumbing we always send an experienced plumber to your home with the expectation of getting your existing garbage disposal working again and giving you back your sink.
Garbage Disposal Maintenance Tips
If you want to keep your garbage disposal an good working order, you must always use plenty of water to flush it so that it will properly dispose all the garbage you place in it.
You should never put metal, plastic, or glass down your disposal. In many cases we find silverware jammed in the disposal and it can be damaging to your system. Remember, the garbage disposal is a convenient way to get rid of plate scrapings and assorted soft foods.
In the event that you do accidentally get something stuck in the disposal, you may be able to use pliers or tongs to pull the jammed object out. Never put your fingers in there because they could get caught in the disposal and cause serious injury.
If you are trying to fix a jam in your disposal on your own, make sure you turn off the power!
