    Common Garbage Disposal Problems

    Many people unknowingly misuse their kitchen’s garbage disposal, treating it as a secondary trash can instead of a useful tool to facilitate draining. In order to prevent garbage disposal repair issues, you should know what common garbage disposal problems look like and what causes them in the first place.

    Some of the most common garbage disposal problems include:
    Garbage disposal
    Strange Sounds

    Your garbage disposal is the furthest thing from quiet; however, the noises it emits when turned on shouldn’t sound like metal being ground up. If your garbage disposal is generating loud, alarming noises, this could indicate that there is a utensil jammed within the disposal.

    Funky Smell

    Nothing is worse than a kitchen sink that is producing a strong scent. This could signal that food has become stuck within the disposal and the smell you are experiencing is the food decomposing or becoming moldy.


    Loose components within your garbage disposal such as loose screws or a loose gasket could cause water to leak from your kitchen sink.

    No Power

    If your garbage disposal is refusing to turn on altogether, this could indicate broken internal components or a loose connector. Once we locate the origin of the problem, we can treat it accordingly and get your disposal back up and running in no time.

    How to Prevent Garbage Disposal Problems

    While garbage disposal issues are common, they aren’t inevitable. In order to prevent future garbage disposal problems, it’s important to properly maintain and correctly utilize your disposal.

    Some of the most effective precautionary tips you can implement into your lifestyle include:
    Avoid Putting Large Chunks of Food In Disposal

    Large food chunks can easily clog your garbage disposal as the food particles are too big for the blades to cut down.

    Run Water During/After Use

    Another method that you can implement to avoid food from jamming your disposal is by running water down the drain after you use it. This will remove any leftover food particles to prevent them from clumping together and getting lodged into your disposal.

    Avoid Fibrous Foods

    Certain foods take longer to break down than others. This is why it is recommended that you never put items such as bones or egg shells down the drain as these foods take a long time to fully decompose.

    Routine Cleaning

    Another great way to prevent jams from occurring in your garbage disposal is by practicing routine cleaning. You can do this by pouring cleaning solution down your disposal twice a week. This will also combat any foul smells that your garbage disposal may emit.

    Why Faucets Leak

    Leaky faucets are not only just annoying to listen to, but they are also a huge money and water waster. According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), one drop of water a second is equivalent to 3,000 gallons of water per year. That’s like taking 150 additional showers.

    Not only is a leaky faucet repair a viable option, but also fixture replacements could be your ideal choice. They resolve the leaks and also add some style to your kitchen without a full remodeling project. Minor things like sink replacements can also go a long way in helping your kitchen be more functional as well.

    Clogs could be the reason behind your low water pressure. Schedule a drain cleaning service and avoid more expensive repairs in the future.

    To prevent your faucet from leaking, you should know the most common culprits behind faucet leaks:
    • Loose components
    • Worn out seals
    • Damaged O-ring
    • Water pressure that is too strong
    • Damaged parts
    • Corroded valves
