Garbage Disposal Installation & Repair – Morganton, NC

Leftover food and other waste can leave your kitchen in a rather unpleasant state.  Scraps of food left over from meals make up 10 to 20% of a typical household’s waste.  When your trashcan isn’t overflowing, your garbage disposal is jamming, right?  

A garbage disposal device, usually electrically powered, is installed under your kitchen sink between the sink’s drain and the trap which shreds food waste into pieces that are small enough to pass through your home’s plumbing system.  Rightfully, food waste disposers take their place of honor in kitchens everywhere.  Perhaps more so than other kitchen appliances.

Both in the trash can and in a backed up garbage disposal system, foul odors can occur that make you want to cringe.  To clear those odors, grind ice cubes and orange or lemon rinds in the disposer, or pour a small amount of liquid detergent into the disposer while it’s still running.  

If neither of these options alleviates your garbage disposal problem, the current garbage disposal system needs greater attention, or your home is in need of garbage disposal installation, call our plumbing professionals.

When installing a new garbage disposal, we will:

  • First remove the old one if one is present.

  • Then, we will install the assembly that will hold it in place beneath your sink.

  • Once securely seated, we tighten the mounting assembly, applying even pressure to your sink’s bottom before connecting the disposal’s wires in the disposal electrical box.
