Garbage disposals are electrically-powered and installed under a kitchen sink between the drain and the trap. They shred food into pieces small enough to travel through your home’s plumbing. Many consumers 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 can send 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.
