Take Care of Your Garbage Disposal | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

If your garbage disposal goes on the blink, the garbage disposal experts at Billy the Sunshine Plumber can help.

The day started off well. Your bike ride on the Withlacoochee Trail was great – perfect weather for early morning bicycling. Things changed when you got home. You decided to cook eggs for breakfast, but when it came time to grind those eggshells into oblivion, your garbage disposal would not cooperate. It did not run at all. You reached in and removed the shells, but that didn’t help. Your garbage disposal isn’t working at all.

The best and easiest thing to do now is to call a garbage disposal repair guy like the garbage disposal technicians at Billy the Sunshine Plumber. Billy the Sunshine Plumber can help you with that.

But, you might wonder, is there something I can do to help this from happening again?

Well, yes, there are steps to help prevent garbage disposal clogs. Wikihow.com offers these suggestions:

  1. Do not put so-called problem foods into the disposal. Among those “problem foods” are eggshells, banana peels, coffee grounds, potato skins, rice, pasta, and bones.
  2. Run cold water while you use the disposal.
  3. Clean it weekly with a specialized disposal brush and then flush hot water down the disposal to get rid of the loosened debris. (Be sure to unplug the disposal first.)
  4. Use vinegar ice cubes to clean the disposal each month. Wikihow.com explains, “Pour white vinegar into an ice cube tray until it is half-full, and top it off with water (because vinegar will not freeze on its own). Then place the tray in the freezer for several hours. When they have frozen, toss the vinegar ice cubes into your disposal and turn it on. Be sure to label your vinegar ice cubes in the freezer. It would be awful for a family members to use them in a beverage!”

Sometimes, despite your best efforts, you could get a clog or have the disposal refuse to work for some other reason. That’s the time to call Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
