Garbage Disposals

Delmolino Plumbing will repair or replace your garbage disposal.  We install different grades of In-sink-erator garbage disposals, depending on our customer’s choice.

Garbage Disposal Repair

There are few situations in which garbage disposals require repair.  They usually only become damaged when they are not used in the correct manner. Putting things such as grease, large or hard items, and fibrous foods like celery are the main culprits when your disposal is damaged. Thankfully, Delmolino Plumbing is capable of fixing these issues quickly and efficiently.

Garbage Disposal Installation

If you have attempted repair and it is just not working, you may very well be in need of a completely new unit. Delmolino Plumbing will install a new one, and haul the old one away.

Now is the time to put away your tools and call Delmolino Plumbing for any plumbing project you may have.

Maintenance Tips

Proper garbage disposal maintenance will help prevent the need for repairs and keep your kitchen smelling fresh. Here are some tips for preventing clogs and odors:

  • Always run cold water during the operation of your garbage disposal, as this will help cool the engine.
  • Leave the garbage disposal on until all food scraps are fully consumed.
  • After using the disposal, run hot water through it for a few minutes to ensure that all food residue is washed away.
  • Once a week, put some dishwashing liquid into the garbage disposal and run hot water for a while after switching off the garbage disposal.
  • For extra stubborn odors, try discarding some lemon peels into your garbage disposal. Run the unit, then wait 15 minutes before running hot water to flush the system.
  • Put two cups of ice cubes and a cup of rock salt into the disposal and run the unit with cold water. This will help break up embedded sludge, allowing it to rinse away.
