Garbage disposal is used to dispose off any leftovers from your food, and to keep your pipes safe from getting clogged. However, when your garbage disposal starts to fail, it can severely impact the plumbing system in your house, and the way you keep the kitchen clean. In some cases, garbage disposal can be repaired by an expert. However, there might be times when you need to replace the garbage disposal since there is no way you can get it repaired.
In this article, we will discuss how long a garbage disposal usually lasts, and when you are required to replace your garbage disposal by hiring an expert from Garbage Disposal | H&A Plumbing.
If your garbage disposal sounds like something metallic has gotten into it, you should manually check it with your hands and see if there is a spoon or a piece of silverware stuck in it. Usually, removing the metallic piece from your garbage disposal does the trick and it resumes it’s normal functionality.
However, if there is nothing stuck in the garbage disposal, the components of the machine might be rubbing against each other to create that strange metallic noise. In this case, you will need an expert to realign the garbage disposal and see if the problem is fixed. If this issue is left unresolved for days or weeks, it can take a toll on your garbage disposal, and might cause a reparable damage.
The reset button on your garbage disposal helps unclog it from heavy loads of garbage. This is why you can use the reset button every time your garbage disposal seems to slow down. However, you should not have to use this button every time you put something in the machine.
So, if you have been using the reset button very often lately, it might finally be a perfect time to get a new garbage disposal installed. That is because frequent resets are seen as a sign of aging garbage disposal.
