Garbage Disposal Maintenance and Replacement
There are a number of well-known ways to keep your garbage disposal functioning well. However, these well-known tips are often exactly opposite what you should do and end up causing issues with the appliance:
- Hot water is not your friend- your mother may have told you to run hot water when the garbage disposal is on. The theory is good, but in practice, this just allows for any oils in the food to pass through the garbage disposal and harden further in your pipes. In addition to this, hot water can cause the mechanical parts of the disposal to overheat
- Ice won’t sharpen the blades- there aren’t any sharp blades in a garbage disposal system. In fact, the ‘blade’ of garbage disposal is more like that of a cheese grater, so ice may be harmful to the functioning of the appliance
- Citrus isn’t the answer, either- again, your mother may have told you to throw citrus peels into the disposal to ‘sharpen’ the blades as well as to get rid of any odors. While it may smell pleasant for a time, chances are you’re covering up a problem that needs to be serviced by a professional
Instead of using these outdated methods of caring for your garbage disposal, the best things you can do for the appliance include avoidance of stringy foods (celery, eggshells,) hard foods (bones, popcorn kernels,) and grease. When it comes time to replace your garbage disposal, don’t attempt the job yourself. This can be dangerous because electricity and water don’t mix well, and can potentially break your new disposal.
Kitchen Sink and Faucet Replacement
