Don’t let a foul smell ruin your kitchen experience. A stinky garbage disposal is a common issue, but there’s a solution – and it’s just a call away. Metro’s skilled plumbers have the remedy. Let’s delve into how they can help and how to prevent future problems.
How Can Our Plumbers Assist?
One of the first steps our pros take is a thorough cleaning of the unit. Utilizing specialized tools and cleaners, we eradicate the bacteria causing those unwelcome scents. We’ll safely disassemble the disposal, leaving your sink and unit unharmed. This swift action can resolve the issue efficiently.
Banish Trapped Food Odors
Stuck food particles inside the disposal could be the culprit behind the unpleasant odors. Some bits find a hiding spot and start to decay, fostering mold and bacteria that emit off-putting smells. Our plumbers will dismantle the disposal, eliminate trapped food, sanitize surfaces, and reassemble the unit.
Tune-Up and Repair
A malfunctioning disposal can lead to lingering bad smells. Misaligned blades might fling food particles against the disposal’s inner parts, creating breeding grounds for bacteria. Our experts can repair or tune your disposal to ensure it operates seamlessly.
Check the Plumbing
Foul odors may not solely stem from your garbage disposal. Other factors, such as clogs in your plumbing or sewer line, might be to blame. These clogs could force sewer gases and wastewater back into your drains, causing unpleasant smells. Our team will inspect your drains to rule out any clogs causing these issues.
Disposal Dos and Don’ts
Steer clear of putting tough or fibrous foods down the disposal, like vegetable peels or artichoke leaves. Avoid pouring oil or fat – it can congeal and create blockages. Say no to pasta and coffee grounds as well; they can expand and clog the trap. Lastly, skip eggshells as their inner membrane can tangle and jam the unit.
