After washing dishes, it’s common for some leftover food to go down the drain. A garbage disposal system breaks these food chunks up using impellers to push the food against a grinding palate. This process turns your food scraps into a liquid substance that will flow down your drain easily without obstruction.
However, if your device isn’t operating efficiently, you will notice more clogs in your sink, as the food will collect at the bottom of your sink in its original bulky form.
If your sink is starting to smell or you notice fluids coming back up into your sink after you’ve run the garbage disposal, schedule a service call with Ravinia Plumbing, Sewer, Heating & Electric. We provide plumbing services to Chicago’s North Shore and Chicago’s Northwest suburbs including Highland Park, Buffalo Grove, Lincolnshire, and more.
Garbage Disposal Repair
Repairing a garbage disposal unit can be tricky. That’s why it is a task that is best left to the professionals. Trying to perform a garbage disposal repair on your own can actually cause more damage to the unit. At Ravinia Plumbing, all of our plumbers are licensed with the state of Illinois and are qualified to handle any garbage disposal issue you may be experiencing.
Here are some signs to look out for that indicate you may need repair services:
- Humming noises or other strange sounds
- The system won’t turn at all
- The system is leaking
- Bad smells that won’t go away
- You’re frequently pressing the reset button
- No power
Garbage Disposal Replacement Services
There are instances when your garbage disposal is beyond repair. If your garbage disposal is emitting a very rancid odor or is simply not turning on, then it may be time for a new unit.
This system consists of various moving parts. If several essential components, like the impellers and spinning plate, break, it’ll be more costly to repair them than it would be to replace the whole unit.
Along with offering repairs, Ravinia Plumbing can also provide a new garbage disposal and professional installation. We’ll upgrade your device to ensure it accommodates your household’s needs.
