Garbage Disposal

Atlanta Garbage Disposal Repair

Quality Garbage Disposal Installations & Replacement s

The garbage disposal may be one of the most misused appliances in the home, and that is why many of Assured Comfort’s plumbing service calls involve garbage disposal repair and replacement. A garbage disposal is a food waste disposer unit that is typically electrically-powered. It is installed below the kitchen sink to trap food and shred it into small enough pieces to fit through the home’s drain pipes.

Few people realize that garbage disposals are really only designed to handle light food residue that is rinsed off of plates and other cooking utensils before they go into the dishwasher. When large quantities of food and debris go into disposers, it can overwhelm them and clog the kitchen sink drain.

Assured Comfort’s technicians are experienced in determining if your garbage disposal just needs a simple repair or a complete replacement. Regardless, we will help with your broken garbage disposal and get your sink flowing back to normal quickly.

If you are in the Atlanta Metro Area and are experiencing a problem with your garbage disposal, call Assured Comfort today and we will send one of our professional plumbers out to get it fixed fast.

Avoid putting food waste down the drain and into your garbage disposal that consists of:

  • Grease and Oils
  • Fat or Lard
  • Pulpy Materials
  • Large Food Items
  • Tough Meat and Bones
  • Fibrous Foods (celery and banana peels)
  • Fruit Seeds or Pits

If you are experiencing a garbage disposal that doesn’t work, there are a few simple fixes you can try on your own before contacting a plumber.

For example, if you can hear the hum of your garbage disposal but it won’t operate properly, follow these three steps to try to determine the cause of the problem and solve it.

  1. Find and press the reset button that is often located on the bottom of the garbage disposal.
  2. If this does not change anything, shine a flashlight into the drain to look for any foreign objects, such as utensils.
  3. If there is an item in the disposal area causing the problem, be sure the power is off and only remove the item with pliers or a grasping tool. It is extremely dangerous and never recommended to put your hand or any other object into the garbage disposal.

If you have a more complicated problem and the simple fixes above do not do the trick, you can contact Assured Comfort for help.
