Get Back to Removing Waste With Haste
A garbage disposal makes prep and cleanup in the kitchen a whole lot easier. Not only does it dispose of waste more quickly, but it also puts less strain on your drain pipes and keeps your kitchen smelling fresher. Plus, sending food waste down the garbage disposal is better for the environment than sending it to the landfills.
Despite the many benefits of garbage disposals, they can encounter problems every now and then. When this is the case, call in the experts at Tonna Mechanical. We’ve spent decades repairing, replacing and installing garbage disposals for homes in Rochester, MN, and throughout our service area. So you can certainly say we’ve seen it all!
What Causes Problems With Garbage Disposals?
More often than not, garbage disposal repairs are the result of improper use. If you continually put things down the garbage disposal that aren’t meant to go in it, this can wear down the motor and clog your pipes.
Make sure you’re using your garbage disposal the way it was designed to be used. Avoid putting things such as fats, grease, bones, celery and other stringy foods down the disposal.
You likely need professional garbage disposal repair if:
- You constantly need to reset the disposal.
- The unit won’t turn on.
- There’s a persistent odor coming from the disposal, despite repeated cleaning.
- The disposal is making a grinding sound (in which case, a foreign object is likely stuck in the unit).
No matter what’s happening with your garbage disposal, never stick your hand inside while the disposal is running. Trying to repair the disposal on your own can end up causing even more damage. Contact us to step in and quickly get your disposal running like new again.
Start Fresh With an Efficient & Reliable System
Depending on how you use and maintain your garbage disposal, it will typically last between eight to 15 years. If your disposal is on the older end and needs frequent repair work, you’ll want to consider replacing it sooner rather than later. You’ll pay less in the long run than you would pouring money into an older disposal that won’t last much longer anyway.
We carry several different models of garbage disposals that vary in horsepower. Once we gather a better understanding of your budget and how heavily you’ll be using the disposal, we can recommend the right product for your needs. We offer free estimates and will happily answer all of your questions before providing an upfront price for your project.
