Garbage Disposal Solutions
If your garbage disposal is acting up and you think it needs fixing, it’s best if you don’t try to do so yourself. You could further damage the disposal, or even put yourself in harm’s way if something were to go wrong. Our trained technicians know the correct way to handle a faulty garbage disposal and will do so in a safe manner.
In many cases, the issue can be resolved simply. By removing the cause of the clog or jam, the disposal will quickly be back to normal. However, if it’s reached the end of its useful life – which we will determine when we perform a thorough inspection – or has other electrical problems, it would be best to just replace the entire unit.
