About Garbage Disposal Service
A garbage disposal helps reduce food waste and makes cleanup while cooking and after meals a cinch. However, it can encounter various issues that can cause it to break down. For instance, food scraps can build up inside the sink’s trap, preventing the garbage disposal from properly emptying waste. As a result, it can cause water to slowly drain from the sink or prevent it from draining altogether.
Another common issue that can cause your garbage disposal to require repair is when the blade jams. Usually, this occurs when you put hard-to-grind foods, such as bones, artichoke leaves, lobster shells, etc., into the disposal, which prevents the blade from spinning. It can also occur when you put silverware, sponges, plastic, etc., into the unit, which can damage the blade.
Over time, the motor may also seize up or burn out. If this is the case, it may make a humming noise when it is on, but nothing happens. Leaks also sometimes occur due to wear, which allows water to drip from the bottom of the unit.
