Our Service Offerings

Are you noticing bad smells coming from your kitchen sink? Check your garbage disposal. Food scraps and other materials have probably clogged your garbage disposal. Besides creating foul odors, malfunctioning garbage disposals cause unsanitary conditions in the kitchen. When you need garbage disposal repair in Colorado Springs, CO, look to the trusted professionals at The Happy Plumber Company.

Garbage Disposal Maintenance

There are certain items you need to avoid placing in your garbage disposal. Keeping these items out of your garbage disposal prevents unnecessary wear. Items include:

  • Fibrous food: The fibers from carrots, celery, onion skins, and corn husks can clog the pipes. Dispose of only small quantities of these items along with a large amount of cold water.
  • Starches: Starches from foods like potatoes, rice, and pasta harden and can clog the trap.
  • Oil and grease: Oil and grease will clog the garbage disposal. Throw oil and grease in the trash not in the disposal or sink.
  • Egg shells: Broken egg shells become sandy and gritty and clog pipes.

Also, make sure your garbage disposal is clear of utensils before use. The disposal and utensils can get seriously damaged. 

Before you call for a repair, make sure to check the garbage disposal’s reset button, a small red button on the side or bottom of the unit. Press this button to reset the unit. Switch the disposal on. If it works, you probably have no problem. If it doesn’t work, check your breaker and look to see if the plug is securely attached. If you’ve tried all these and the garbage disposal still doesn’t work, it’s time to give us a call.

Garbage Disposal Installation

Along with repairs, our team will install a new garbage disposal. You might need to replace an old disposal or you may want to connect one to your current system. An ideal time to add a garbage disposal is when you are updating your plumbing during a kitchen remodel.
