Garbage Disposal Plumbing
Garbage Disposal Plumbing in Washington, DC
Without a garbage disposal, a kitchen sink is just like any other — you have to be careful of everything that finds its way down the drain, so you’re not constantly calling your local plumber for yet another drain cleaning service. Upgrading your kitchen plumbing with a garbage disposal unit enables your kitchen sink to take on a variety of different types of waste, making the cooking and cleanup process a breeze. After your very first use, you’ll be hooked and wondering how you ever lived without this amazing appliance.
However, just like any good plumbing fixture, your garbage disposal needs regular maintenance to preserve its performance. Magnolia Plumbing, Heating & Cooling provides quality garbage disposal plumbing services in Washington, DC and the surrounding areas. Get in touch with a Magnolia plumbing expert today!
Kitchen Garbage Disposals — The Plumbing Appliance You Won’t Regret
Your garbage disposal really simplifies your time in the kitchen. Cooking and cleaning are a lot easier, and as a bonus, it’s much less likely that you’ll need to unclog the drains very often if you use the garbage disposal properly. Save yourself a future drain repair service by calling our experts for a garbage disposal installation or replacement in Washington, DC. You’ll get the next available appointment so that you can start taking advantage of this kitchen sink feature as soon as possible.
It may be tempting to toss all of your unused and unwanted food bits in the kitchen sink when you have a garbage disposal unit installed. However, the garbage disposal is not a makeshift trash can. You can’t just throw anything and everything down the drain, and expect your system to be a-okay. Your garbage disposal and plumbing pipes have their limits too.
Just like (we hope) you clean and service the water heater tank, plumbing pipes, sink drains, and other important plumbing fixtures on the regular, the same care should be applied towards your garbage disposal. We recommend DIY cleaning with a gentle baking soda and vinegar solution every one to two weeks, and getting a professional garbage disposal plumbing service at least once a year.
Meanwhile, don’t strain your unit too much by disposing of the wrong waste. Just because it has the word garbage in it doesn’t make it a garbage can. Avoid dumping any of the following items into your garbage disposal:
- Grease, fats, and oils
- Coffee grounds
- Bones, fruit pits, and other hard foods
- Celery, onion skins, and other stringy foods
- Dangerous cleaning chemicals
- Pasta, oatmeal, and other expandable foods
- Non-food items
