Garbage Disposal Units and Service in Plano, TX
If you’ve lived for any period of time in a house that has a kitchen garbage disposal, you’ll probably have a difficult time imagining life without its convenience. And if you don’t have a garbage disposal, you may not realize the labor-saving and protection for your plumbing that you’re missing out on.
For garbage disposal services, whether a routine repair or retro-fitting an older kitchen with a brand new sink disposal unit, you must have professional plumbers on the job. Poor work on a disposal can mean clogged drains and even a damaged sink, and amateur repair jobs risk causing injury. It’s easy to avoid these mistakes when you only have to call Hutchins Plumbing & Air Conditioning for great garbage disposal plumbing work. We have 40 years of experience in Plano, TX and throughout Grayson and Collin Counties.
The Benefits of a Garbage Disposal
There are many reasons why garbage disposals have become a standard part of the modern kitchen. They make cleaning up much simpler, since you can scrape food particles and cooking leftovers down the drain rather than putting them in a separate trash receptacle that must be carted outside. This also lowers the amount of waste that ends up in landfills, since the disposal grinds down the food so it can be part of the wastewater that heads to the sewage treatment plant. Grinding down food particles is also a way to protect your plumbing from clogs. If your current kitchen lacks a sink disposal unit, you should consider calling our professional plumbers to arrange for installation.
How to Avoid Kitchen Garbage Disposal Repairs
Although our plumbers are glad to help you whenever your garbage disposal breaks down, we know you’d like this to be as rare an occurrence as possible. To keep your disposal working its best, here are some items you should never put down it:
- Liquid fats, oils, and grease.
- Fibrous vegetables, such as celery and asparagus.
- Un–chewable food leftovers, such as popcorn kernels and meat bones.
- Any type of organic garbage, including paper and plastic.
- Rice and pasta, which become bloated with water.
- Ice cubes, which are not an effective way to "sharpen" the blade of the disposal.
And please remember that you should not attempt to repair a broken disposal on your own. This is a potentially dangerous undertaking. You only need to give us a call and we’ll take care of the job quickly.
Sink Disposal Units Replacement
Since no garbage disposal can last forever—especially when you consider how much work the one in your kitchen does every day—a time will come when repairs will not be worthwhile and the best idea is to replace the unit. This is a simple job for licensed plumbers. One of our experienced kitchen plumbers will have the old disposal out and an excellent new one in its place in no time at all.
