How To Maintain Your Garbage Disposal

Garbage disposals are great to have in any household because they prevent stinky garbage cans and make clean up after an evening of cooking a breeze. But, many homeowners don’t give much thought to how the garbage disposal works with their plumbing systems.  

The plumbing experts at LimRic Plumbing, Heating & Air are happy to answer this common question: How can you ensure that your garbage disposal continues to work properly and efficiently?  

The Answer? You must be very careful about what you send down your disposal, as it will affect your whole kitchen’s plumbing functionality.  

Garbage disposals are meant to break down foods and send them through the pipes. Just because you may think something is safe to put into the disposal does not mean that it is. According to our plumbing technicians at LimRic, the following items should never be placed in the garbage disposal:  

Fat or Grease, Pasta, Rice, Stringy Vegetables, Potato Skins, Whole Fruits or Vegetables, and Coffee Grounds 

If there is ever an issue with your garbage disposal such as a leak, malfunctioning parts, or an unpleasant odor, don’t take the risk of sticking your hand down the drain. Let one of our plumbing professionals at LimRic solve the problem for you!
