Why should you hire a professional to fix your garbage disposal?

Garbagedisposals are amazing things. In fact, you’re like most people, you probablytake yours for granted.

For example: several years ago we had a client who moved to Mexico for a few months- she was shocked to find out the apartment she’d moved into didn’t have a garbage disposal. The electrical components were there (ie: below-sink outlet and wall switch), but that was about it.

Few people realize how convenient this appliance is until it stops working (or in her case, goes missing.)

If you’ve started to have a garbage disposal problem, you may be wondering if you can handle the repair on your own.

For this blog, we wanted to highlight the reasons you’d be better served byhiring a professional garage disposal repair company.

Leaking garbage disposals can be tricky

If your garbage disposal is leaking, you may need to replace it. There are, however, times that the issue can be repaired. Maybe it needs a new seal, or perhaps, the rings around your sink’s drain hole aren’t working properly.

There is also the chance that a hole has developed in the wall of the actual disposal. This can happen when foreign objects (ie: spoons, pieces of glass, etc.) make their way into the garbage disposal because foreign items can cause lead to cracks in the machine’s casing.  

Most people are surprised to learn that there are many things that can cause a garbage disposal to leak and, as such, it’s always best to leave this type of repair to a professional. When you work with Colorado’s Best Appliance Repair you can rest assured you’ll be working with a company that has years of experience in helping troubleshoot this type of issue.

The disposal is draining slowly

Have you ever tossed some chopped vegetables into your garbage disposal only to learn that your disposal is draining slowly? This can cause a huge mess! Not only do you have a kitchen that needs to be cleaned, you have a sink that’s full of standing, gunky water.

If this happens, it may be due to a clogged drain line. And while your first instinct may be to grab a bottle of drain de clogger, this is not advised! Not only will you wind up with a sink full of chemicals, it’s likely that the chemicals won’t do much good (when it comes to clogged garbage disposals, chemicals rarely do the trick.)
