How to Take Good Care of your Garbage Disposal

Even the best garbage disposal needs a little TLC. Here’s how to keep your disposal running for years to come:

  • Turn your faucet to cold water and fully open it before running your garbage disposal. Hot water or poor water flow can cause it to overheat.
  • Know what not to put down your disposal. Fibrous foods, spongey foods, egg shells, and coffee grinds can cause problems.
  • Be sure not to put grease down your garbage disposal. Wait until it cools and throw it away, or pour it into a bottle and throw that away.
  • Make sure to run your disposal with plenty of water, and keep it running after turning the disposal off.
  • Be careful not to overload your disposal. Feed food scraps in slowly and wait until the scraps have cleared before adding more.
  • Don’t neglect the rest of your plumbing system. A clogged sewer, rusty water lines, or malfunctioning fixtures can all impact your garbage disposal.
