Tips to Maintaining Your Garbage Disposal

The best way to make sure your garbage disposal works properly at all times is to take steps to stop problems from occurring in the first place. Almost all garbage disposal problems are avoidable, provided you follow these important guidelines:

1
Avoid Large Garbage

If you have to stuff it down the drain, you should avoid putting it there in the first place.  If you can, you should always throw larger scraps or garbage in the trash can.

2
Foods to Avoid

There are a list of foods that you should always avoid putting in the garbage disposal including potato skins, bone fragments, eggshells, banana peels, fats, grease, popcorn kernels, fruit pits, seeds, stringy vegetables like celery, and coffee grounds.

3
Always Run Water

Running water as your garbage disposal works to get rid of waste will help reduce clogs. It also works to lubricate the motor, bearings and blades. Remember to run for at least 20 seconds after you stop the disposal as well.

4
Grind Ice Cubes

Running water as your grind up ice cubes can help clean the garbage disposal blades.

5
Grind Orange Peels

If your disposal has an odor, try putting small citrus or orange peel pieces down the drain and grind while running water.

When is it Time to Replace Your Garbage Disposal?

As appliances age, they all need to be replaced at some point including your garbage disposal.   But when is the right time?  For an appliance that gets used as frequently as a garbage disposal it’s easy to get used to its “quirks” as it gradually declines in efficiency and effectiveness. But if your system is showing the following signs, its best to plan for a replacement.
FREQUENT CLOGS
If there are frequently clogs in your garbage disposal, it could mean that it’s time to replace it, or it could also be a sign that it needs more regular maintenance.
PRESSING RESET OFTEN
It’s not unusual to have to push the reset button, especially after a clog or heavy disposal load. But if you notice that you’re resetting more frequently, it could mean a more significant failure is eminent.
DULL BLADES
When you notice that food is taking longer to grind or is more difficult to grind the blades are probably no longer sharp enough and a replacement is needed.
A LEAK
Some leaks may have a very simple fix, but others can be much more complicated. If you have link in any part of your garbage disposal, the most cost-effective solution may be replacing the unit.
BAD ODORS
There’s many ways to clean your garbage disposal and eliminate strong odors, you can grind ice cubes or citrus peels, you can also flush out your garbage disposal by combining baking soda and vinegar. If the odors persist, getting a replacement disposal is the next best option.

Wow great job overall. Very professional with a great system for contacting you with when the technician is arriving. Brian was fantastic quick and went over everything before he did it. Punctual, thorough and job was done perfectly. AC unit which I neglected was running like a new system and not pricey at all.

It was a pleasure having Matt service our equipment. He was on time and explained everything he did. He took care to protect our hardwood floors while he worked. Jackson Comfort has been taking care of our unit for over 15 years. Thank you to everyone at Jackson and especially Matt for such great service.

Been using Jackson for 10 years. Always on time, friendly and not pushy. They use modern technology to confirm appointments and send reminders (email and text). I also like that I received a color image of the service tech via text when he was en route to our home. That way I know it is actually him.
