Once you become accustomed to having a garbage disposal as part of your kitchen cleaning arsenal, they can be difficult to live without.

Why Would I Need Garbage Disposal Repair?
Since your garbage disposal includes elements of the electrical system and plumbing system, there are several things that can go wrong that would need professional repairs or replacement. Dulling of the blades could result in the food being improperly processed, which could cause clogs or backups in the plumbing. If an electrical circuit blows or is damaged, then the power to the disposal won’t be working or will be intermittent, requiring a repair. If there is a crack or split in the pipe that’s connected to the garbage disposal drain, you’ll need it repaired before the system can be used again.
Regular Maintenance to Reduce Costly Repairs
As with other home appliances and fixtures, regular maintenance goes a long way toward giving you a garbage disposal that will run effectively when you need it to, all year long. If you schedule a licensed plumber to come in and look over the system once per year, you can rest easy knowing that it is clean and there is no damage that may result in needing extensive, costly repairs or having to replace your disposal. If you rely on your garbage disposal regularly to make your kitchen tasks more manageable, having regular maintenance performed is one of the best things you can do.

It All Starts With the Installation
No matter how many repairs you have or how diligent you are with maintaining the garbage disposal, if it is not installed correctly, you will end up having problems throughout its lifespan. And, like most things in life, your garbage disposal will not last forever and you will eventually need to replace it. When that time comes, choose a reputable, professional installer that includes garbage disposal replacement or installation as part of its regular list of services. Staying true to your budget is important, but cutting corners is not the way to do it. Take the time to find an installer that makes sense.
