Do You Need A Garbage Disposal?
Get A New Garbage Disposal Installed For "Only $199.00"
The electric-powered garbage disposal was invented about 80 years ago. Today, about 50% of of US homes have a disposal unit installed, although they are not as popular overseas: Only 6% of homes in the UK have a garbage disposal system installed.
The garbage disposal is an alternative to throwing food waste into the trash, where odors and bacteria may develop: homeowners simply throw their food waste into the sink and the machine does the rest, grinding it up and moving it away down the pipes and out of your home.
Whether you are residing in Los Angeles or surrounding area you should know a well-maintained garbage disposal can last up to ten years.
To keep your garbage disposal unit functioning at peak performance, it must be used often to prevent rust and corrosion. Only cold water should be used to flush away the ground debris. Hot water merely melts the grease and it can solidify again further down the pipes and cause a stoppage which will have to be unclogged by a plumber. After grinding, keep running the cold water for about half a minute more, to make sure that all the ground-up material is flushed away and doesn't remain in the unit, where it can harden and cause a blockage.
To prevent odors from developing in your garbage disposal, we recommend either lemons or vinegar. Cut up a whole lemon and grind it in the garbage disposal. Or make ice cubes using vinegar and grind these cubes into the system, Both of these will prevent odor build-up in your unit.
The only materials that should go into a garbage disposal unit are biodegradable items - food waste. Glass, metal, bones, wood or plastic should never be put into the garbage disposal as these can cause serious damage to the working parts. Fibrous materials like corn husks, celery stalks and onion skins should also not be placed in the garbage disposal unit as they may clog up the unit, as will coffee grounds. Grease and oils of all types tend to clog up the unit and should never be put into the garbage disposal. Peels of potatoes or carrots can slip through the blades and clog up your pipes. The bottom line: the only material that should go into the garbage disposal unit is the leftovers on your plate - no peels, no bones, no fibrous material of any kind.
