The trick to your Garbage Disposal repair safety is common sense. Where electricity, plumbing, and gas are involved, do-it-yourself Garbage Disposal repair beware. Even if nothing explodes during the do-it-yourself Garbage Disposal repair, one man’s beginners luck can be tomorrow’s disaster. Wake the next morning to an electrical fire or return home to a flood, and you’ll wish you had called a Garbage Disposal repairman. Your Garbage Disposals are safer in the hands of a professional. Your home and your family are too.

Leave it to Garbage Disposal repair professionals. Preserve safety, and save yourself unnecessary costs.

Deodorizing the Disposal

The disposal gobbles up carrot peals and dinner scraps, helping us dispose of food refuse. Yet, sometimes its hard work yields a stench.

When there’s an odor, traceable to the kitchen sink, don’t fret. A remedy may be in your cupboard.

Though the garbage disposal is in the business of waste management, some food can get left behind. With old food comes decomposition, and with decomposition comes odor. The food left behind not only creates a smell, it can create clogs and interfere with the performance of the disposal, too.

To keep things smell-free and functioning with ease, you’ll want to develop a few good habits. One of which is regular cleaning. This will help eliminate odor and keep the disposal in tip-top shape.

Uncommon Use for the Common
No need to buy any fancy cleaning tools of elixirs. The trick to keeping it clean is just a reach away. Lemons, ice cubes, vinegar, and baking soda—common to many kitchens and a mainstay for cleanliness—can cleanse a foul smelling disposal in no time.

Freshen the disposal with citrus. A quartered lemon put through the disposal can work wonders. The juice and oils do the cleaning and leave an enduring fresh scent. Beyond neutralizing the odor, you’ll need to ensure the residue causing the smell is eliminated. Fill the disposal with ice. Then, run the disposal with cold water. The ice will release the stubborn bits and pieces and the cold water will wash them away.

Try a two-in-one ice cube by freezing vinegar in the ice tray. Vinegar will help cut through the slime and odor. If you have forgotten to freeze the vinegar for your bi-weekly cleaning, simply pour vinegar in the drain as you run ice through the disposal.

An additional home remedy consists of a half cup of baking soda and vinegar. Once the baking soda has been poured into the disposal, follow with vinegar. The combination will foam up. Let this sit in the disposal for 10 minutes before turning on the water and running the unit. Baking soda is known for its odor absorbency, and this combination is well-suited to combat clogs and grime build-up. 
 
A simple method—any of the above mentioned—preformed routinely will serve as a preventative measure for long-term cleanliness and proper functioning. Food refuse left too long will not only create odor, but can compromise the disposal’s performance.

Good Habits Go Far
Good cleaning habits are essential for an odorless disposal. Even more, the way you operate your disposal can determine the extent and frequency of your regular cleaning.

Don’t wait, run the disposal as soon as waste enters. Delaying until a sizable amount of food accrues will only make the disposal’s job more difficult and make it easier for foods to stick and stay.

Always run cold water when operating the garbage disposal. Avoid putting starchy or fibrous foods in the disposal. Starchy potatoes do a great job of creating a paste in the disposal that can cling inside until it creates odor. Fibers from celery or corn husks can obstruct the blades, and jam the unit.

If you avoid unmanageable build-up, you can curb the unpleasant scent and make it easier on yourself. Waste left too long will be hard to release and make these simple home remedies innocuous. In a place where the only smell we wish to encounter is baking cookies or simmering pasta sauce, a few good habits can go a long way.


If your problem cannot be resolved with this quick and easy to repair tips, we strongly advice that you call us for an garbage disposal repair appointment.
