Take Care of What Goes Down

Garbage disposal plumbing must be in good working order. This prevents kitchen drain clogs, backups, and odors. Though designed for food disposal, some foods may clog your garbage disposal. Items like grease and fat, bones, or foods with high fiber and stringy consistency (like celery), can cause problems. The system may be damaged by non-food items such as straws, sponges, or silverware. Take care to prevent these types of items from falling into your disposal system.

Contact your Roto Rooter Plumbing & Drain professional immediately if you suspect a clog in your garbage disposal. This could lead to clogs further down the drain lines. The result is severe drain clogs or even backups, which will need more extensive repairs. Roto Rooter Plumbing & Drain plumbers extend the life of your garbage disposal by maintaining and repairing your machine. They have experience with most sizes and brands of garbage disposals.

Common garbage disposal repairs include:

  • Humming – may be the result of a burned-up impeller or motor
  • Jams – may occur from too much food or items that are too hard to grind – this may prohibit the blades from spinning 
  • Leaks – may be the result of worn-out seals – this allows odors to escape, wet work areas, and cause health concerns
  • Nothing happens – the disposal may have a poor electrical connection or need to be reset
  •  Won’t drain – the disposal may not be correctly chopping the disposed of food and waste – results in a clogged drainpipe
  • Call your Roto Rooter Plumbing & Drain professional today to schedule a garbage disposal repair in Chattanooga, TN. Or ask about our commercial garbage disposal services.

Restaurant and Commercial Garbage Disposal Services

The use of garbage disposals in commercial kitchens is vital for efficiency. Producing much larger amounts of waste food, a commercial garbage disposal is used to reduce clogged drains. Garbage disposals for the commercial kitchen come in many different sizes, styles, and horsepowers. There are also light-duty models available. These are in office kitchens, convenience stores, fast-food restaurants, or delicatessens. A medium-duty model is in midsize restaurants, schools, or hospitals. Kitchens that have high volumes of waste need a heavy-duty garbage disposal. These are in hotels, factories, and large restaurants and kitchens.
