Protect Your Garbage Disposal And Keep It Running Smoothly

Don't Put Certain Foods Down the Drain

Garbage disposals are a great way to help keep your kitchen clean, but it’s important to remember that not all foods should be put down the drain. Fibrous materials, like celery and onion skins, can clog your drain, while sticky materials, like grease, can be difficult for the disposal to grind up. Always refer to the manufacturer's instructions to see what can and cannot be put down your disposal.

Don't Overload the Garbage Disposal

Another important tip to follow is to avoid overloading your disposal. If too much food is put down the disposal at once, it can cause clogs and jams. To avoid this, break up large pieces of food before putting them down the drain and make sure you run cold water through the disposal for at least 15 seconds after grinding up each batch of food.

Have Regular Maintenance

Regular maintenance is key to keeping your garbage disposal running smoothly. A good rule of thumb is to have it serviced every 6 months. This will help ensure that it remains in good working condition and also help prevent any major problems. If you're not comfortable handling maintenance on your own, seek out a qualified technician who can help you make sure your garbage disposal is running properly.
