Garbage Disposal Repair Experts for Tampa Bay, FL

A Bad Garbage Disposal Can:

Create Unpleasant Odors

When food waste isn’t properly disposed of, it can start to decompose within your garbage disposal, leading to unpleasant odors emanating throughout your kitchen. This not only makes your cooking space less inviting but can also affect the overall ambiance of your home.

Cause Clogs and Plumbing Issues

Garbage disposals are designed to handle specific types of waste, but when they malfunction, they can cause clogs. These aren’t ordinary clogs, either. They are often deeper within your kitchen plumbing, making them harder to reach or resolve without professional help.

Attract Pests

Kitchens are the heart of the home, but they can also become a haven for pests if food waste is not managed correctly. A broken garbage disposal can contribute to this by providing a constant food source for pests like insects and rodents.

Why You Want Your Garbage Disposal Working at 100%

A fully functional garbage disposal plays a huge role in managing kitchen waste efficiently. It helps keep your kitchen clean and sanitary by grinding down food scraps and disposing of them without causing clogs or odors. Having a well-functioning machine can maintain a pleasant cooking environment while keeping pests away. Additionally, making sure that your disposal is in top condition can save you from unexpected plumbing repairs and maintain the efficiency of your kitchen’s plumbing system.

Is Your Garbage Disposal Broken? These Signs Point to It!

If you’re noticing any of these symptoms, it might be time to give us a call:

  • Persistent Odors: No amount of cleaning or baking soda seems to get rid of the smell.
  • Frequent Clogs: Even minimal amounts of food cause backups.
  • Loud or Unusual Noises: Besides the normal humming sound, you hear clanking, grinding, or other alarming noises.
  • Poor Performance: It takes longer to grind food, or it doesn’t grind it as finely as it used to.
  • Leaks: Water pooling under your sink can indicate a seal or component has failed inside your disposal.

Repairing vs. Replacing Your Garbage Disposal — Which One Should You Do?

Choosing to repair or replace your garbage disposal depends on several factors, including its age, condition, and the cost of repairs. Generally, if your disposal is relatively new and the repair is minor, fixing it might be the best route. However, if your unit is old and has been repaired multiple times, investing in a new garbage disposal might be more economical in the long run.

What You Should AVOID Putting in Your Garbage Disposal

To extend the life of your garbage disposal and prevent issues, avoid putting these items down your drain:

  • Coffee Grounds: They can accumulate and cause clogs.
  • Fibrous or Starchy Foods: Things like celery, banana peels, potato skins, and onion layers can bind around the blades.
  • Oils and Fats: These can solidify and create blockages deeper in your kitchen plumbing.
