Garbage Disposal Installation & Repair in Woodland Hills

The garbage disposal can be one of the trickiest appliances in your home to install or repair. If not installed correctly, garbage waste from your garbage disposal can backflow into nearby lines and fixtures. If you have noticed a foul smell coming from your dishwasher, it may be time to have your garbage disposal inspected.

Our licensed, bonded, and insured plumbers can handle all of your garbage disposal installation and repair needs. They can make sure that the lines shared by your garbage disposal remain clear, keeping waste from backing up in your other fixtures. After all, there's no point in having a garbage disposal if you can't get rid of the waste you wash down the drain.

How To Get The Most Out Of Your Garbage Disposal

In order to get the most out of your garbage disposal, it is important to have it installed and maintained properly. But, in addition to the services we can provide, there are few things you should keep in mind whenever using your garbage disposal to avoid potential problems (and the need to make a service call in the first place).

  • Don't overuse it. Instead, throw away most of the items you would normally put in the disposal.
  • Keep fat and oil out of your sink. These items can clog up your drain, even after passing through your garbage disposal. If you do accidentally pour grease down the drain, flushing with hot water can help clear it out.
  • Same goes for husks and stringy vegetables, which can jam the disposal.
  • If your blades become dull, the only safe way to sharpen them is by feeding ice into the disposal. Other rigid materials can cause more harm than good.
