While our team can help you when age or wear and tear have taken their tolls, taking a few precautions yourself can help prolong the lifespan of your disposal unit. 

Prevent Damage to Your Garbage Disposal

Keep the following in mind before running your garbage disposal: 

  • Take caution not to wash grease down your disposal as it can build up on the walls of your pipes over time, causing clogs and damage. 
  • Do not put things that are harder to break down in the disposal. Eggshells, banana peels, coffee grounds, bones, paint, and similar items should always go in the trash and not your disposal. 
  • Always run water when using the disposal, as this will help flush the waste into the pipes. 
  • Never reach into the disposal, even if it is off. 
  • Be careful to always check that the disposal is free from silverware before turning it on. If a fork or knife has managed to slip into the unit, call our professionals for help. 
  • Do not use your disposal if it is making unusual noises, such as rattling or grinding. Instead, call our plumbers for repairs. 
  • Never pour cleaning chemicals down your disposal. If your unit is producing foul odors, call in our professionals for an inspection. 
  • Keep your garbage disposal properly maintained with help from our team at Bono Plumbing. Like any appliance, regular maintenance will help prolong your disposal’s lifespan.
