Tips for Maintaining Your Garbage Disposal
Here are a few tips we like to share with our customers to help them maintain a healthy garbage disposal.
- Run your disposal often. You don't want food scraps to get stuck in the blades, so make sure to run the disposal any time you put food scraps down the drain.
- Run cool water instead of hot. Hot water can damage and dry out the soft rubber parts within your disposal. Opt for cooler water when possible.
- Be choosey about what goes down the drain. Starchy food waste should be scraped off instead of put down the disposal, since it's difficult for the blades to chew up. Also, never put coffee grounds, fats, or oils down the drain.
- Say no to over the counter drain cleaners. These are not only toxic, but they do damage to your pipes the more you use them. Try natural methods for clearing your drain, like baking soda and vinegar, or just throwing a fresh lemon down the disposal and chopping it up.
