What Is The Lifespan Of A Garbage Disposal?

With good practices with usage in place, and proper upkeep and maintenance, a garbage disposal system will last 10-15 years. To ensure your garbage disposal system lasts the full 10+ years, be sure to schedule repairs at the first sign of an issue. Staying up on repairs eliminate the possibility of extensive damage to the disposal system. Neglecting issues, even ones that seem small, can lead to much larger problems down the line.

Common Garbage Disposal Problems

Although it has the word garbage in its name, a garbage disposal does not actually get rid of all waste. In other words, you cannot just put anything down your drain and expect your garbage disposal to eliminate it. To help prevent unnecessary buildup from accumulating, it’s important to know what should go in your trash can and what can be put down the disposal.

For maximum efficiency and to maintain your garbage disposal’s lifespan, we recommend that you only put organic materials down your drain. And, it goes without saying, never stick your hand down the disposal while it is powered on!

To keep it working properly, our Laguna Hills garbage disposal technicians recommend that you avoid putting the following items down your disposal:

  • Inorganic material
  • Grease
  • Oil
  • Any fatty substance
  • Bone
  • Ground coffee
  • Eggshells
  • Glass
  • Metal
  • Plastic
  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • Potato skins
  • Any fibrous food (like celery)

It’s also important that you never over stuff your garbage disposal, so be sure to watch how much you’re putting down it at one time.

Should you need repairs, we will dispatch an experienced technician who can inspect your unit and perform necessary fixes on the spot. It is our mission to restore your kitchen to proper working order as soon as we possibly can.

Maintenance Tips from Our Expert Plumbers

While repairs or replacement will eventually be necessary, there are things you can do to prolong the life of your garbage disposal.

These include:

  • Using cold water when you run your disposal
  • Using dish soap when you run your disposal
  • Running it often to prevent corrosion of the blades and maintain your disposal’s ability function

If your unit begins to smell foul, we recommend using lemon or orange slices to give your kitchen a nice citrus scent. You can also use frozen vinegar, which will kill any bacteria as it is ground up. If you leave baking soda in your drain and return to rinse it, any awful smells should be eliminated.

In the event you need a new garbage disposal, our technicians are extremely capable of helping you select one that will best meet your needs. We will then provide you with a quote for the unit and installation. It’s important that you hire professional plumbers to install your new unit because an improperly installed garbage disposal can result in a series of inconvenient problems and malfunctions.
