Why Doesn’t My Garbage Disposal Work?

August 22, 20221

A garbage disposal is a useful tool in any modern kitchen.

Like any tool, if it’s used improperly, you can count on having to replace it sooner than expected. In the video below, Doug Jackson shows us how a garbage disposal actually works, and some best practices for prolonging the life and usefulness of your garbage disposal.

A February 2020 nationally representative CR survey of 1,000 U.S. adults shows that just over half of Americans live in homes with a garbage disposal, and of those who do have one, more than 60 percent said their disposal was already installed when they moved in. Because of this fact, not everyone knows what is best for their garbage disposal. Mistakes such as putting the wrong items down your garbage disposal are common, and can shorten the lifespan of your equipment. Garbage disposals typically last between eight to 12 years. To get the longest lifespan out of your appliance, check out these best practices in the video below.

Joe, is one of the best servicemen that Jackson Comfort has. He is extremely knowledgeable, friendly & courteous, listens to me, explains the details of what he is checking, and always does a thorough job. Today he did the annual check on my A/C system. I have full confidence that my unit is in top shape for the next year.

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.
