Garbage Disposer Installation
It takes skilled plumbing professionals to install a new garbage disposal, especially if it’s the first disposal for a kitchen. It’s not only a matter of ensuring that the disposal is correctly connected to the drainage system under the sink, but also seeing that it has the right horse-power to manage your specific needs. A poorly installed disposal can create many problems: it can rattle around and start to damage the sink, it can collect bacteria and germs, and it can create clogs in the pipes because of ineffective grinding. We don’t want you to have to deal with any of these problems—and we’ll see that you don’t with an excellent garbage disposer installation.
Garbage Disposer Repair
The best way to avoid needs to call for repairs for your garbage disposal unit is to take good care of it. This means knowing what shouldn’t go down it. Here are items to keep away from your food disposer:
Any non-organic item—i.e. real trash
Hard food waste like fruit pits, meat bones, and unpopped popcorn kernels
Pasta and rice, which absorb water and swell up
Stringy and fibrous foods, such as asparagus, celery, and onion skins
Fats, oils, and grease, which turn solid when they cool down
If you still run in to problems with your garbage disposal (even the greatest caution can’t prevent all problems) call us for fast repair solutions in Deleware and Maryland.
Garbage Disposer Replacement
Most garbage disposal units will last from 10 to 15 years. After that, it’s best to have any unit replaced. The wear and tear on any disposal will eventually cause it to lose the ability to effectively grind down food or its motor will burn-out. A burnt-out motor almost always means it’s time to call Atlantic Refrigeration and Air Conditioning, Inc. for a replacement garbage disposer. Other signs to watch out for that indicate you need a new disposal include persistent foul odors, strange noises when the disposal runs, water leaks from the disposal, needing to reset it too often, and common clogging issues. If we can’t repair your disposal, we’ll offer you options for a replacement.
