Garbage disposals are absolutely standard in modern kitchens today. Amateur and gourmet cooks depend on their home’s garbage disposal system to get rid of food waste conveniently and keep pipes running cleanly. Benjamin Franklin offers the repair and installation of garbage disposal services Overland Park residents can trust.

How exactly do garbage disposals work?

Garbage disposals are electrically powered appliances between the sink and your home’s plumbing system. They use electrical motors to grind food into pieces small enough to leave your home through the plumbing waste system. A safe and effective garbage disposal installation requires both plumbing and electrical skills. When a garbage disposal is installed incorrectly, it can cause many plumbing problems including backups, clogs, leaks, and damaged cabinetry and flooring.

Benjamin Franklin Overland Park does garbage disposal repair and installation services.

Some of the most common garbage disposal problems are:

  • The disposal refusing to turn on
  • The garbage disposal turns on but won’t run
  • Water leaks into the cabinetry
  • Drain clogs up or runs slow

How to keep your disposal running cleanly:

  • Never grind coffee grounds, egg shells, or potato peelings, as they stick to pipes
  • Never pour grease down the garbage disposal
  • Use baking soda and vinegar in the disposal at least once a month to keep the disposal running clear and smelling fresh and clean
  • Don’t run hot water when grinding food waste because it liquefies grease and cause clogs further down the pipe system.Use cold water instead
  • Do not pour bleach or drain cleaners down the disposal as they damage pipes
