Treat Your Garbage Disposal correctlyInstallation and Troubleshooting - Cleaning A Garbage Disposal Or Replacing it
The garbage disposal machine is very popular in American homes: over 50% of all homes in the USA have a garbage disposal system installed. They are less popular overseas: in the UK, fewer than 10% of homes have a garbage disposal unit installed.
Should You Install A Garbage Disposal Appliance?In general, women want a garbage disposal installed in the kitchen: men seem to care less than do women.
If you install the appliance correctly and the USE IT correctly, you will have no problems. But if the unit is not professionally installed or you don’t use it the right way, you will have problems ranging from unpleasant odors to blocked kitchen waste lines.
We are often called out to unclog kitchen waste lines because the householder has not been using the garbage disposal appliance the right way.
The kitchen sink is not a trash can. Just because you have a garbage disposal unit, it doesn’t mean that you can just throw anything into it. Ground up food waste still has to travel down the pipe and away from your sink.
