How to Avoid Garbage Disposal Problems
When we install the garbage disposal in your home, our technicians will go over the unit’s operation and maintenance requirements with you.

Garbage Disposal Maintenance Tips
- Run the cold water when using the disposal and for about 10-15 seconds after.
- Grind ice to clean the disposal drain. Be sure to place the stopper in, before crushing the ice, so the ice chips won’t fly out.
- Help prevent fat buildup and avoid a slow, smelly drain with regular use of a garbage disposal cleaner product or degreasing chemical.
- Grind citrus fruit peelings regularly to maintain a fresh scent from the disposal drain and help disrupt bacteria growth.
- Let us snake the drain every year or two to maintain the unit and help avoid disposal clogs.

Garbage Disposal FAQ
Common questions we receive about garbage disposals include:
What size garbage disposal do I need?
Determine the size (horsepower) you’ll need by considering the number of family members regularly eating with you, how much you use the disposal, and the type/amount of food you regularly cook and discard. No matter how large or small your disposal is, don’t overload it with too much food at once. Run food through gradually to avoid clogging, blocking, or breaking the unit.
What should I never put down a garbage disposal?
Chicken bones, oil or grease, fat, spaghetti or pasta, and fibrous veggies like celery should stay out of the disposal. Also, avoid dropping in sponges, plastic or wire bread ties, rings, necklaces, or anything non-edible. If something gets stuck, don’t risk cutting your fingers or hand—call in one of our expert plumbers for garbage disposal declogging and repairs!
Why does my disposal smell bad?
With bits of food breaking down and hanging around in the drain and pipes, the disposal requires regular cleaning, as described in the maintenance section below. Avoid using chemical cleaners for the garbage disposal drain, since they can burn your skin or eyes, as well as harming the environment and your plumbing pipes.
Should I run water when using the garbage disposal?
Yes—and choose cold water, because hot could cause any grease to harden in the disposal drain and plumbing pipes. The water will help the food get ground up more quickly and easily.
