After a long day at work, cooking does not always sound ideal. Consider a way to ease the process, like quick and easy food disposal for an efficient clean-up! Instead of walking back and forth to the trashcan with scraps of food, you just toss them down the drain. Convenience is key, therefore, a garbage disposal is key!

Garbage disposals work by using impellers to grind food scraps into minuscule pieces. Once the food scraps are ground, they are flushed down the pipes with water. What are some benefits of this quick disposal process?

Benefits of a Garbage Disposal

  • Convenience: As talked about above, garbage disposals are great for convenient cleanup, during and after the cooking process. Toss your scraps down the sink as you cook!
  • Odor Eliminating: Food scraps that sit in the trashcan will begin to rot, producing an unpleasant odor that can radiate through the house. This may lead to having to take the trash out more often.
  • Reduces Ant Infestations: Nobody likes to find a trail of ants in their house. Leaving food scraps in the trashcan leaves you at risk for an ant infestation. If ants smell the food scraps in your trashcan, they will begin to scout out your house.
  • Reduces Landfill Waste: When you dispose of food scraps in a garbage disposal, they end up in a wastewater treatment plant rather than a landfill. Waste that goes to landfills decays and releases harmful gas into the environment, while in a wastewater treatment plant, wastewater is turned into clean, reusable water without harming the atmosphere with gas.

Garbage Disposal Maintenance

While your garbage disposal seems indestructible, there are certain substances that can harm its functioning. Substances such as oil, grease, fats, certain meats, and  chunks of food that are too large can create clogs. In addition to potential clogging agents, frequent use of your garbage disposal over time will eventually result in the need for repair or replacement. To prolong the life of your garbage disposal, try to clean it every other week and avoid any improper disposal of clogging agents. If you experience any of the following, it’s time to call in a professional:

  • Slow draining
  • Leaking
  • Foul Odor coming from the drain
  • Loss of noise
