Same Day Garbage Disposal Repair Available

The garbage disposal in your DC metro area home was designed to handle a lot of heavy use, but all garbage disposals need repairs over time to function efficiently. Here are a few common signs that your garbage disposal needs repair:

  • When you flip the switch, nothing happens
  • You hear humming noises instead of grinding up food
  • The blades don’t grind food as well as they used to
  • You see leaks from the disposal under your sink

If you have any of these issues with your garbage disposal, one of our experienced plumbers can identify the problem and repair it immediately.

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)
  • Oatmeal
  • Grease
  • Nuts
  • 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.

What Our Clients Are Saying
testimonial_image The tech was at my home less than 10 minutes and gone within 20 minutes due to having my A/C up and running. I really appreciate his response to my home and working with my son due to me being out of town, but we spoke on the phone.
testimonial_image The technician arrived promptly, wore a mask, was very courteous and professional. I am generally very satisfied with service by United Air Temp. In addition to good service (they repair well), it is easy to speak to a person, and promptly. Thank you.
testimonial_image Great service! I called because I was under the impression the AC was not working upstairs. Someone came on the same day, checked out the system, and ensured everything was working. He was polite, thorough, and friendly.
testimonial_image Tech was very attentive and professional. He went out his way to explain everything to me as he was doing it. I appreciated him keeping me informed.
testimonial_image The service technician was awesome! He spent the extra time necessary to ensure the leak in our system was fixed, the system fully recharged and everything was functioning as it should. He was extremely thorough and very professional. We are extremely pleased with the result!
