Garbage disposals are becoming a great addition to modern kitchens. Rather than filling your trashcan with food items, which creates strong, unpleasant odors, garbage (or food) disposers provide homeowners and kitchen connoisseurs a more pleasant and clean way of ridding their space of food waste.
One of the busiest days of the year for a plumber is Thanksgiving Day. Those garbage disposals get such a workout with all the meal preparations. They often don’t find the constant use and large quantities of food agreeable. Unfortunately, there is no antacid for disposals so prevention is the key. Potato skins, unwanted grease, and food items swell up with water tend to cause a tummy ache in the kitchen pipes.
Here are a few tips to avoid premature issues with your disposal and keep it running efficiently and strong for up to ten years. Regular use will prevent corrosion and build-up. Allow the disposer to run for a few minutes with soap and water to freshen and clean. Consider using your trashcan more if you are cooking larger meals or during holidays. Also, keep your disposal clean and smelling good by grinding up a tray of ice cubes with a lemon. This helps remove any food debris off of the blades and wall of the disposal.
