Garbage Disposal Odor Issues
A plumber can help take care of your garbage disposal and get rid of the bad smell that is coming from it. When you use your disposal, bits of debris and food get caught and stuck in the moving parts.
A plumber knows how to clean out your disposal by removing all the bits of things that are left behind. It is most likely that it is rotting bits of food and other debris that is causing the bad smell.
Another thing that a plumber can do is to clean off the parts are dirty with a cleaning solution. If the smell is strong enough, they may use a deodorizer or odor neutralizer to further help get rid of the smell. They know what deodorizers and neutralizers are both safe for your garbage disposal and effective at removing nasty, strong odors.
Things You Shouldn't Put in Your Disposal
Garbage disposal are powerful tools, and it seems like they can handle anything. Unfortunately that is not true, and there are many things you should not put down a garbage disposal.
Putting the wrong things down the garbage disposal can cause it to stop working or become damaged, which would lead to costly repairs.
Another reason why you should be careful about what you put down your garbage disposal, is because the wrong things could get stuck in your garbage disposal and lead to bad smells when they start to decay.
In order to prevent both of these things from happening, it is very important to monitor what you and your family put down the garbage disposal. For example, grease, oil and fat can collect in the parts of your dishwasher. One of the most common causes of a malodorous garbage disposal is grease, oil or fat that has gone rancid. These things can also build up and eventually slow down your garbage disposal.
Pits, seeds and bones are hard and can damage the sharp parts of the garbage disposal. One of the most common reasons why garbage disposals break is because of parts breaking against pits, seeds and bones.
Pasta and rice expand when exposed to water and can eventually clog the disposal. Every time you put water down your sink it allows these starchy grains to expand and get stuck. Eventually these too can start to go bad and cause nasty smells.
If you get to know your plumber they can help get rid of these bad smells and teach you how to prevent them and other problems with your garbage disposal.
