Our Garbage Disposal Repair Services
If you notice foul smells coming from your kitchen sink, it could mean food scraps and other materials have clogged your sink, or your garbage disposal is blocked or otherwise damaged. When you have a damaged garbage disposal and need expert garbage disposal repair in Covington, LA you can always rely on the talented technicians at All Star Plumbing Air, Electrical and Generator.
To ensure your garbage disposal stays in good repair, there are certain items you need to avoid placing in it. When placing excessive amounts of these items in the disposal, it can cause unnecessary wear on the disposal itself, and often results in pipe clogs. Items include:
- Fibrous food: Foods such as carrots, celery, onion skins, and corn husks can clog the pipes.
- Starches: Excessive disposal of starches from foods like potatoes, rice, and pasta can clog the trap.
- Oil and grease: Oil and grease clogs and slows down the garbage disposal.
- Egg shells: When egg shells break down, they become sandy and gritty, and have trouble flushing down the pipes, which can create clogs.
You also want to make sure your garbage disposal is clear of utensils before use. The disposal and utensils can get seriously damaged.
