Frequently Asked Questions
How long does a garbage disposal last?
Garbage disposals usually last for about 10 years. If they last beyond 10 years of heavy use, they aren’t efficient and need constant repairs.
What should I avoid putting through my garbage disposal?
Here’s a list of items you should never put through your garbage disposal. Over time, these items will destroy your disposal—beyond simply jamming the flywheel or causing small leaks:
- Eggshells (more specifically, the membranes that cling to the shells inside)
- Potato peels
- Coffee grounds
- Fibrous fruits (i.e., melons)
The licensed plumbers at United Air Temp have seen and fixed every possible garbage disposal issue. Schedule an appointment with one of these experts today.
How do I get rid of a bad smell in my garbage disposal?
Sprinkle half a cup of baking soda in your kitchen drain, add a little vinegar, and wait for at least 15 minutes. This mixture should act as a natural cleaning agent that’s safe for your garbage disposal and the surrounding plumbing system pipes.
