Garbage Disposal Repair

Garbage disposals can face a number of different problems. Some of these are easily fixed, while others require advanced training. Here are two of the most common issues:

  • Jamming – This occurs when people try to dispose of large food chunks, paper products, or grease in the disposal. In case of a jam, never stick your fingers into the disposal. This is extremely dangerous.
  • Overheating – Overheating is another common issue with modern garbage disposals. If the disposal does not hum when you flip the switch, it’s probably overheated.

If you have to wonder whether you’re up to the task, don’t take an unnecessary risk. You might create the need for even costlier repairs. Instead, give EPS a call.

Expert Tips
- Calvin Gulia Jr.
Maintain a healthy garbage disposal by running cold water before and after each use. This helps flush out any remaining food particles and keeps the blades clean. Avoid putting fibrous or starchy foods like potato peels, celery, or pasta down the disposal as they can clog the system. To freshen up your disposal, grind a few ice cubes and citrus peels to eliminate odors. Remember, regular maintenance and proper usage will extend the lifespan of your garbage disposal, saving you time and money in the long run.
