Garbage Disposal Repair and Replacement

Garbage Disposal Repair Stuart FL

Nearly half of the homes in the United States use a garbage disposal unit to cater to everyday waste. The unit is usually located between the drain and shredding trap but it can cause serious plumbing problems. Statistics clearly show that scraps of food make up a large portion of household waste but there is a big disposal problem. Public health departments intimate that left over food causes several health, sanitation and environmental problems that must be dealt with promptly. It is recommended that people treat food waste as a liquid to minimize solids that end up decomposing and releasing methane in landfills. Such waste produces high amounts of methane, a gas that is more toxic than carbon dioxide.

How to ensure your Garbage Disposal runs smoothly

It starts with cleaning your garbage disposal to eliminate foul odors that emanate from food build up;

You can do this by grinding lemon rinds or ice cubes in the disposal unit for a few minutes. The ice cubes will help to clean out any food remains stuck in the system while lemon rinds have a pleasant smell that overwhelms the odors in a garbage disposal.

You can also pour some of your favorite dishwashing liquid into the running unit to clean it and make a habit of running cold water through it for about a minute after your cleaning routine to rinse away debris.

Some people also find that pouring hot water into the unit helps loosen food particles stuck in the moving parts.

When your Garbage Disposal Stops Working in Stuart, FL

In the event that your garbage disposal stops working, there are some steps you can take to reverse the situation but you must be careful to avoid inflicting injury on yourself or making a major mess. A normal unit has an overload sensor to help it shut off whenever the motor starts to overheat. If this happens you should check the connection and do the following;

  • Turn off the unit at the main power source.
  • Check that it is securely plugged at the outlet.
  • Press the reset button on your unit.
  • Restart by turning on the main power switch.

Whatever you do, never put your hand down the disposal drain as it contains moving parts that could cause serious injury. If resetting your unit doesn’t solve the problem, avoid further issues and call in a professional. We understand the inner workings of garbage disposal units to safely repair them and ensure flawless plumbing for your home.

Called Dylewski Plumbing and what an AMAZING plumber! showed up on time, coming from Stuart, FL he was friendly and exact about his findings from the evidence of a leak we were having from our 2nd floor guest bathroom. He tested a few components to narrow his theory and went to work downstairs cutting a hole in the ceiling to expose the area even further. He was extremely neat and clean about his work using drop cloths and making sure any breakables were removed from the work site. Immediately confirmed what the issue was and was able to rectify quickly. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

When I received a phone call early in the morning from my Mom, my son and I went over to help her out. She woke up that morning sick, and when she got up and went to the bathroom, the toilet had overflowed and there was water about 1/3 inch deep in the bathroom and the bedroom floor was also wet. We tried calling plumbers for help but everyone was busy so I called a business in town for a referral. They gave me the number of Dylewski Plumbing, and when I called, he came right out to the house to fix the problem. I am so impressed with Dylewski Plumbing that I will call them for any and all problems that I might have in the future at my house, and I'm sure my Mom will call Dylewski Plumbing for all of her future plumbing needs also! It's seldom that you find such a caring person to come to help you out. He was very professional, polite, friendly and very reasonable!!! Thanks again, Jenny
