There are plenty of plumbing related jobs around your home that you should leave to a professional to handle. They can clean and unclog drains or inspect a faulty dishwasher. Another task that is better off left to a plumbing professional is the repairing or replacing of your kitchen sink’s garbage disposal. Let’s face it: the garbage disposal is an essential feature in the modern kitchen. It makes clean-up tasks more convenient and efficient when getting rid of food scraps. But if you’re working with a broken or underperforming garbage disposal, that could seriously hinder how you use your kitchen. Therefore, you can’t put off repairing or replacing your garbage disposal when the time comes. You also should be hiring a plumbing professional to get the job done!
Identify the Cause
A garbage disposal is affordable, but they aren’t exactly cheap either. Plus, you need to account for installation fees, which could vary depending on the unit or extent of plumbing work needed to replace and install one. All of this is to say you should have a professional evaluate whether your disposal can be repaired before you decide it’s necessary to purchase a new one. Could it be a matter of dull blades, an old motor, or a stubborn clog? A pro can identify the cause of the issue and recommend a wallet-friendly course of action to fix the situation.
Get It Safely Fixed
If you don’t know what you’re doing, cleaning, repairing, or replacing the disposal is an inconvenient and dangerous job. The disposal is a metal blade tucked into a dark, cramped space. It breaks down food waste products, which could mean there are hazardous bacteria growing in the unit. A professional will have the appropriate tools and know-how to handle the garbage disposal safely and hygienically.
Better and Faster Installation
There’s no doubt a professional repair or replacement service yields a better quality finish with fast results. A pro can fix up your disposal to work like new or install your new unit so that it can last. Hiring a professional to complete the job also means you can have your disposal fixed very quickly, so you can get back to using the feature with no interruptions. Further, a pro is able to go over some maintenance and clog prevention tips with you, so you can avoid any possible future problems. For example, many people don’t know they shouldn’t put hot grease or lemon peels down the disposal.
