Charleston Garbage Disposal Repair

Trained & Honest Plumbers

In a modern kitchen, a garbage disposal is just as important as the fridge or stove. This unit is attached to the underside of the kitchen sink. The purpose of this appliance is to grind up pieces of food that are washed away when the water is turned on. Unfortunately, many things can go wrong with a garbage disposal. If you’re in need of repairs, call McAtee Plumbing Heating & Cooling now for quick, cost-effective plumbing service. We can also perform maintenance and annual checks to prolong your garbage disposal’s life expectancy for many years to come.

It’s also important that you never stick your hand down into your disposal trying to fix it yourself. This is extremely dangerous and can lead to small nicks in your fingers due to the blades, or worse. That’s why it is best to leave it up to our Charleston garbage disposal repair pros.

To get started, give us a call today at (803) 335-5109 or send us a message online for garbage disposal repair in Charleston.

Possible Problems with Your Disposal

If you can hear the motor of the disposal working but it won’t grind, this means that your unit is jammed or clogged. Usually, a piece of bone or a large chunk of food is stuck near or around the blades. Additionally, this can block off the drain hole. We suggest that you don’t continue to run the unit before calling us out to inspect the problem. You can burn the motor out, which will result in the need for a whole unit replacement.

Other possible problems with your disposal include:

  • A clogged drain hole and a unit that sounds like it’s grinding poorly
  • Broken blades
  • A leak under the unit due to a faulty gasket or connector

When our Charleston garbage disposal repair specialists arrive at your property, we will first perform a proper inspection to inform you of the exact cause of your troubles before we conduct any necessary repairs or replacement. Again, when in doubt of any issue, preserve your safety and let the professionals handle it. You can rest assured that we’ll get the job done right.

Prevent the Need for Garbage Disposal Repairs

Many people think that because the word “garbage” is in the name, they can put anything down the disposal. However, this is not the case; there are certain materials that can build up within your unit and there are others that are too tough for the blades to grind down. At McAtee Plumbing Heating & Cooling, we recommend that you only put organic matter down your garbage disposal to help protect its lifespan. Avoid putting fibrous foods, grease, fatty substances, oil, metal, or plastic down it. It’s also important to be aware of how much you’re putting down your garbage disposal at one time to avoid overstuffing it.

You deserve a company that puts your needs first. Give us a call at (803) 335-5109 to get started with garbage disposal repair in Charleston.
