Keep Your Garbage Disposal Running Longer

Kitchen Sink: A shot of a kitchen sink and tap

If you are a homeowner than most likely your kitchen has a garbage disposal. A garbage disposal is a common kitchen device that can be found underneath your kitchen sink. Your garbage disposal’s main job is to shred up food that goes down the sink. By shredding food waste into smaller pieces you will run a lesser chance of clogging up your pipes.

It is important to note that there are certain things that should not be put into the garbage disposal including:

  • Coffee grounds
  • Grease
  • Celery
  • Potato peels
  • Fruit pits
  • Egg shells

In addition, our plumber recommends that you routinely flush water down your garbage disposal and clean it regularly.
