Garbage Disposal Repair & Replacement Plumbing Services in Woodstock, Georgia

Garbage disposals are usually electrically-powered and installed under a kitchen sink between the drain and the trap which shreds food into pieces small enough to travel through your home’s plumbing. Most do not realize that garbage disposals are meant to handle light food residue rinsed from plates and utensils before they go in the dish washer. While cooking a meal it is likely you depend on your garbage disposal to keep the drain and sink clean. When a garbage disposal becomes worn or clogged it sends out an unpleasant odor throughout your kitchen.

Large quantities of certain foods placed down the disposal can clog the drain and sometimes cause it to back up into the space below your sink in your cabinets. These goods include egg shells, coffee grounds, potato peels, banana peels, and more. When a disposal becomes worn or clogged, it sends an unpleasant odor throughout your kitchen
