Caring for Your Garbage Disposal

A garbage disposal should work efficiently to grind food waste into small particles that can be safely flushed down the drain, preventing clogs and odors in the kitchen. Ideally, they make minimal noise and vibrate only softly. Here are some tips to keep it that way:

  • Clean the garbage disposal regularly to prevent odors and buildup of food residue. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners.
  • Avoid putting items like bones, fruit pits, seafood shells, fibrous materials, grease, oil, and non-food items down the disposal, as they can damage the impeller and cause clogs.
  • Run cold water while using the garbage disposal and for a few seconds afterward. Cold water helps solidify greasy substances, allows food waste to be chopped up more effectively, and helps flush the waste through the drainpipes.
  • Avoid overloading the garbage disposal with large amounts of food waste at once. Feed food waste into the disposal gradually to prevent jams and ensure thorough grinding.

Of course, you should always be mindful of your garbage disposal. Inspect the garbage disposal regularly for signs of wear, leaks, or damage. Check for leaks around the base, under the sink, and at connections to the drainpipes and dishwasher.

Garbage Disposal Repair in Sacramento County is a Call Away

As simple as the garbage disposal is, there is an awful lot of things that can go wrong. Clogging and backups as well as leaks and water damage are common concerns, but you should also watch out for other signs of trouble. 


Our kitchen drain was draining directly under the house creating a small lake of soap and mud. Several plumbers were called but all were a week or more out. We reached out to a lesser known company, Acknowledge Plumbing, and within a coupe of hours, we had a plumber on site and the problem resolved. It turns out some rodent(s) chewed through the coupling causing the discharge under the house. We are grateful to Acknowledge for their quick response, professional service, and friendly interaction.We are saving their number for any future plumbing problems that may arise. We were very satisfied with this company and highly recommend them to anyone with plumbing issues.

Felix came out to work on my reverse osmosis system. It turned out I need new system but he was thorough, explained everything in detail, and was reasonably priced. I've already teed him up for my next plumbing project. I highly recommend Felix and the Acknowledge Plumbing team.

Called Acknowledge Plumbing to fix an issue with my water pressure & piping. Steve came out the next day to provide a free estimate. He was very knowledgeable and provided some cost saving options to try before needing to do major work. Greatly appreciate the responsiveness & ability to act and respond in the best interest of the customer from this company. Definitely will give them a call for future plumbing needs.

We had an urgent need for help with our water heater on a holiday weekend (is was leaking and needed to be replaced). We were not optimistic that we would get anyone to answer a call, let alone make availability for a service call. Not only did Acknowledge Plumbing pick up the phone, but Savina was stellar in finding us a tech for the same day, and provided updates on her progress in near real time - this is highly unusual these days. Felix connected with us, discussed options for a new unit, procured it and arrived the same day. He was a pleasure to have so the work and got the whole project turned around that afternoon. They are at the top of our virtual Rolodex.

Unusual noises like clunking and rattling can indicate loose components, damaged impellers, and other mechanical issues. Electrical issues may be a factor if you are dealing with no power or frequently-tripping circuit breakers.

A broken or malfunctioning garbage disposal can pose serious risks, and you should leave sophisticated garbage disposal repair in Sacramento County to trained and experienced professionals. Residents in the area can call Acknowledge Plumbing to hire a uniformed plumber.

We Come Prepared

What seems like an issue is sometimes not; it can be a matter of a small adjustment or it can be bigger than what you originally thought. There are times we go out for a garbage disposal replacement and it turns out the unit is fine but the power is out. Other times, an expected repair may be more expensive than a replacement.

Whatever the case, the plumbers at Acknowledge Plumbing come prepared with tools, materials, and parts to handle everything from a quick repair to a complete garbage disposal replacement in Sacramento County.
