Garbage Disposal Services In Northern Virginia & Beyond

Our Manassas-Based Plumbers Keep Your Sink Clean & Clear!

A garbage disposal acts as a food trap in order to protect your pipes from clogs. When a garbage disposal is working properly, it grinds food into fine particles so it can be safely washed down the pipes. As long as you're careful about what goes down the disposal, your unit should protect your drains for many years.

A change in the noise your disposal makes usually signifies a problem in the unit. If your disposal seems to be having difficulty grinding food in your drain, ask our Manassas-based plumbing team to have a look. The sooner you have it serviced, the more likely we'll be able to contain the damage.

For garbage disposal services in Northern Virginia, Maryland, and throughout the Metro D.C. area, call My Plumber Heating & Cooling at (844) 294-8999.

How to Avoid Garbage Disposal Problems

A garbage disposal is an important mechanism and it’s equally important that you take proper care of it in order to ensure that it doesn’t experience any issues.

To keep your disposal running smoothly:

  • Don't pour grease, cooking oil, or animal fat down the drain. It solidifies and blocks the blades when they try to spin.
  • Keep utensils out of the disposal side of the sink, for they can get trapped in the blades and damage your disposal.
  • Run cold water when the disposal is on. This hardens food and helps the disposal more easily chop it up.
  • Drop citrus fruits down the drain while the disposal is running to clean it out and keep it smelling fresh.
  • Avoid dropping food peelings—such as potatoes or carrots—down the disposal, as they're hard on your unit.

Help! My Disposal Stopped Working!

First, unplug the unit to prevent injury. Then, check your circuit breaker box. Sometimes the garbage disposal pulls too much energy and flips a circuit. In this case, simply flip it back on to get your disposal running again. Before you flip the breaker, make sure the drain is clear and your hands are well away, in case the disposal jumps back to life. If the unit hasn't tripped a breaker, check the underside of the round black device (called the "shredder housing"). Depress the red reset button found on the bottom of the unit.

We recommend contacting our Manassas-based plumbers for hands-on help diagnosing and correcting all garbage disposal problems. We provide comprehensive garbage disposal services in Northern Virginia, Maryland, and throughout the D.C. area.
