In hopes of having property owners not have unexpected Provo garbage disposal repairs, and to ensure it remains clean and smell free, we put this infographic together to highlight the products that one ought to not put into a disposer.

Among the leading food waste items to not put in a garbage disposal unit is grease. It seems safe enough given that it is mainly a fluid and soft, but can easily congest pipes because it can adhere to the insides of drain pipes. Grease rather should be put in the garbage can. Other items that should not go in are bones, onion and potato peels, celery, shells from shell fish, large amounts of coffee grounds, and pastas (which can likewise make a sticky mess in ones drain pipes).

In terms of appropriately running the disposal device, see to it that just cold water is made use of and have the water turned on high prior to turning on the disposer. Then, in little quantities put food waste into it. As soon as all the waste is chopped up, run the disposal for 30 to 60 seconds longer. And of course, keep the water running till after the disposal is turned off.

To keep the disposal blades clean and without particles, chop up a few ice cubes to clean it. Also, slice lemon slices or other citrus peels to assist in keeping smells away.
