Here are some do’s and don’ts for those with or without a garbage disposal.

    • If you don’t have a disposal or insinkerator, make sure to keep a strainer in the drain.
    • Beans, rice, pasta and bread are especially spongy and will quickly cause a clog.
    • Don’t pour cooking grease or drippings down the drain. Instead, dispose of it in the trash.
    • Wipe congealed grease from pots and pans with a disposable towel.
    • When using the disposal, start the water before turning it on. Then add the food scraps. Then turn it off about 10 to 15 seconds after the grinding noise quiets.
    • Do not use a disposal for the following:
      • Potato peels
      • Carrots
      • Poultry skins
      • Banana peels
      • Apple cores
      • Stringy or fibrous waste of any kind
      • Big, hard chunks of any kind

Stopping Leaky Faucets in Phoenix AZ

Before you call us for Phoenix faucet repair, try these simple tips.

    • Clean the aerator regularly to prevent sediment and lime from building up. This causes low water pressure and leads to handle leaks.
      • Unscrew the aerator on the faucet and the head on the sprayer.
      • Use a small brush (such as a clean used toothbrush) to scrape away build-up.
      • Vinegar can help remove waste.
      • Simply put the head or aerator back on and make a note to do it again in a month.

Simple Garbage Disposal Repair

Did you know that your disposal is made to cut itself off? This overload protector switches off to prevent the motor from overheating. It may also be a tripped circuit that shuts off power to the unit. Before you call Cure All for help, check the following:

  • IMPORTANT: Make sure the switch is in the off position.
  • IMPORTANT: Do not reach into the disposal.
  • Check to see if the disposal is firmly plugged in. The outlet is under the sink with the unit.
  • Press reset switch on the unit. It is usually on the front or the bottom.
  • Then, run water into the unit and try turning it on. If it doesn’t work, it’s time to call Cure All.

Loud Garbage Disposal Operation

If your disposal has gotten loud, chances are it is getting old.

  • Try a significant amount of water when grinding food.
  • Be more careful about the size of pieces you are grinding.
  • When in doubt, throw it out instead of putting it down the disposal.
  • Look at your warranty to see if it is still valid and call for help if it is still covered.
  • Put it on your to-do list to get it replaced.

If these tips aren’t fixing your problem, please call Cure All at 480-895-5858. We can answer your plumbing questions, repair kitchen plumbing issues, replace disposals and fixtures, and much more.
