Garbage Disposal Repair Services

When you need your garbage disposal, the worst thing that can happen is that it breaks down. When you hear a funny noise from your disposal or realize that the blades aren’t working like they should, it’s time to call in some plumbing services that can get your unit fixed. While you may be diligent about keeping hard objects out of the drain, sometimes the inevitable accident happens, which can lead to you needing a repair.

The garbage disposal isn’t a food grinder; it’s an appliance that can help make your life easier by getting rid of small, malleable bits of food. If you need a garbage disposal repair, consider Elite Plumbing & Home Services, your one-stop shop for all your plumbing issues. We’re a plumbing company that handles everything from clogged pipes to stopped-up garbage disposals or broken disposal blades.

If you want to help prevent your garbage disposal from needing repairs, evaluate what you put through it.

Instead of looking for a plumber, look out for the following items before you let them slip down the drain:

  • Starchy, thick vegetables like potatoes, orange peels, and beans
  • Grease or oil, which solidifies later and can clog your pipes
  • Egg shells, which can clog your pipes, stop the disposal blades, and even damage the shredder
  • Stringy vegetables, like corn husks, celery, and asparagus, since they can tangle in the shredder
  • Bones, since your shredder can’t cut through them
  • Coffee grounds, since they don’t go down the drain easily and will simply accumulate in your pipe

Garbage Disposal Replacement Services

Sometimes a repair just isn’t worth it; if you need garbage disposal replacement services, Elite Plumbing & Home Services can help. While it can be good to repair your appliances as often as possible to help save money, a replacement is a swift fix that leaves you with a new, working garbage disposal that can stand more readily against whatever you pass through.

There are many ways to recognize that your garbage disposal is so broken that a repair may not be the best option, including:

  • Pipe leaks: If you have worn seals around your garbage disposal area, it may be time not just for a replacement, but an evaluation of your pipe system in the sink.
  • Jamming: If it’s hard to get anything down the sink, including water, you may need a professional plumbing service to help you with your sink.
  • No functionality: When you flip your garbage disposal switch only for nothing to happen, blades may be stuck due to a clog.
  • Humming or heavy vibration: If your garbage disposal system makes more noise than usual or starts vibrating so violently that it causes the entire sink and countertop to shake, then yes, you may need to get it replaced.
  • Rancid odors: If you notice a smell emitting from your sink, you likely have something rotting within the pipeline that the garbage disposal couldn’t handle. Calling a plumbing service like Elite Plumbing & Home Services can help you get this situation resolved.

Garbage disposal replacement is a last resort. While repairs can fix most issues, sometimes the cost is too high to necessitate anything other than a full-on replacement. Elite Plumbing & Home Services has all the right tools available to get the job done quickly in your home. Call (443) 343-2284 to learn more.

Garbage Disposal Repair/Replacement FAQ

If this is your first time getting a garbage disposal installed, or you just need one fixed, then you likely have many questions. Below, we’ve answered some of the most common.

Is It Worth It To Repair a Garbage Disposal?

Yes, it is worth it to repair a garbage disposal, if you can find a reliable installation and repair service to help you. That said, if the damage is severe, it may be better to replace the entire garbage disposal.

Can You Replace a Garbage Disposal Yourself?

While you can replace a garbage disposal yourself, we don’t recommend it. While the replacement itself is simple, choosing the model and matching it to your plumbing can be a little more difficult, so leave the work to the experts.

What Is the Life Expectancy of a Garbage Disposal?

The life expectancy of a garbage disposal is about 10 years. Consider getting your garbage disposal system checked every few years to ensure your plumbing system is working correctly with the disposal.
