Garbage Disposal Maintenance

Even if you’re careful about what you put down your garbage disposal, the blades and pipes are still bound to go through some wear and tear. Keeping everything clean is a great way to make sure your garbage disposal doesn’t break down—and even if it does, you can always call ARS/Rescue Rooter for a quick and easy repair.

Keeping your garbage disposal clean

Get rid of built-up sludge and debris by filling it with ice cubes and a cup of rock salt, then running it for about five seconds. If your garbage disposal smells bad, deodorize it by grinding a lemon while you run warm tap water.

Making sure your garbage disposal lasts is all about how you treat it—and a big part of regular maintenance is knowing how to use your unit properly. Never put the following materials down your garbage disposal:

  • Fruit pits or seeds (peach, avocado)
  • Stringy, fibrous vegetables (celery, asparagus)
  • Egg shells
  • Bones
  • Grease and oil
  • Coffee grounds
  • Potato peels and beans

Keeping your garbage disposal in working order doesn’t have to be difficult. If you have any questions or concerns, ARS/Rescue Rooter can help. Call us at 866-399-2885 any time, day or night.
