Your kitchen is right at the heart of your home. This is where your family comes together and where your kids sometimes do their Algebra homework. This is also where you’re most likely to suffer from plumbing troubles –– which is why you need to have a reliable plumber on stand-by. Let us tell you more.
Garbage Disposal Repair
Few appliances in our homes are subjected to more taxing demands than the garbage disposal systems in our kitchens. Think about it: we use it to grind leftovers down to a pulp, sometimes throwing things that we shouldn’t throw there. That is why cleaning and taking proper care of our garbage disposal should also be on our to-do list. Let us tell you about some easy steps you can take today.
One of the easiest and most simple actions you can take is running some water when you turn on your garbage disposal. Running water will help grind down any food compost you are trying to process. Water can help your garbage disposal break down food residue and facilitate the grinding process.
On a similar note, you want to make sure you’re using cold water. This is because colder temperatures make it easier to break down food whereas hot water can keep fats and solids congealed inside the garbage disposals, increasing the chances of clogging it or even breaking it.
And, of course, avoid trying to grind large objects with garbage disposal. They are likely better off in the trash.
Clogged sinks are also another common issue in most kitchens. As with garbage disposals, the main culprit tends to be food material that gets inappropriately flushed down. Over time, your pipes will clog and prevent water from leaving your sink, potentially leading to an overflow.
In order to protect your sink, we recommend throwing food scraps into a compost bin. But when everything else fails, it’s time to call the experts.
