Signs of a Clogged Garbage Disposal
- Pooling water
- Unpleasant odor
- Gurgling sounds or bubbling
- Slow draining or failure to drain
If your sink is showing any of these signs, it’s important to address it sooner rather than later. Once drainage problems begin, they typically only get worse over time. And while you may be tempted to use a chemical drain cleaner, we recommend avoiding them. They often use harsh chemicals that can cause your pipes to warp or even push clogs deeper into your plumbing. When you trust your clogged drains to D&F Plumbing, Heating, and Cooling, we’ll clean them carefully with the best tool for the job, using anything from snakes to hydro-jetting to effectively clear your drains.
Causes of Garbage Disposal Clogs
Below is a list of items you should avoid putting down your kitchen sink:
- Grease and oil
- Cleaning solutions
- Fruit pits and seeds
- Stringy, fibrous vegetables
- Paper towels
Even if you avoid these items, you may experience a clog if you pass food into your garbage disposal too quickly. Another common reason garbage disposal clogs develop is lack of water. This can cause food to get stuck in the drain line.
