A garbage disposal is an alternative means for getting rid of food garbage via your plumbing system. A unit is installed under your kitchen sink where it sits between the drain and the trap and essentially grinds up the food waste to allow it to pass through the pipes and out into the sewer system. Because it is integrated into your home’s plumbing system and passes into the sewage system or your septic tank, clogs and other plumbing problems do happen sometimes.
Food waste and scraps are a significant part of our garbage in our homes, putting a burden on local waste services and landfills. Garbage disposals allow us to change the way we handle our residential food waste, changing it from solid waste to something closer to a liquid that can be handled through wastewater processing. As these facilities are able to manage organic solids more effectively than ever, this removes some of the burden from landfills, which also minimizes decomposition and related methane gas production. Reducing landfill waste and the creation of this greenhouse gas makes a garbage disposal a smart choice for managing food waste.
While most food waste is swept away from your garbage disposal through your plumbing system, sometimes food can build up in the casing of the disposal unit causing unpleasant odours in your kitchen. Most of these odours can be eliminated with the following simple home remedies:
If your garbage disposal stops in the middle of your chores, it may be that you’ve overworked it, causing its failsafe switch to flip. This happens if the motor overheats, and it is usually a straightforward fix. Be sure to never put your hands or any non-food objects down the drain.

Not too hot, not too cold... JUST RIGHT
Kelly came to my home, took measurements, asked the right stuff and was so thorough in providing information and tips that I had absolutely no questions for him. Don and the other young man who came for the install were fantastic, they even swept up OUR mess from the floor! This team really made what could have been a nightmare turn out to be an easy and even pleasant experience. Thank you to the incredible team at Furnasman!
I was asked if I was happy with the Furnace Tune Up and Duct Cleaning. The technician was pleasant, polite, and thorough. And, he did not take a long time to do the Tune Up. I am pleased with the services provided by Furnasman. I am happy that I do not have to worry about my furnace and air conditioner.
The technician Jason was on time, quick, efficient and courteous. He answered my questions and explained what he adjusted and looked at. Very happy with Furnasman!
Very courteous right from initial call for service through the whole process. Technician explained all that he was doing and why the furnace wasn't functioning properly. Would highly recommend their service.
