Garbage Disposal Maintenance Tips

Looking to avoid the need for disposal repair or replacement? Proper maintenance is key. Here are a few tips to help you get the longest life possible out of your current garbage disposal:

  • Always run your disposal with cold water.
  • Keep the disposal turned on until all food scraps have been fully consumed.
  • Then once the disposal is turned off, run hot water for a couple minutes to rinse away any remaining food residue.
  • Avoid putting grease, fats, or fibrous vegetable scraps down the disposer.
  • About once a week, pour dish soap into the disposal. Wait a few minutes, then rinse it out with hot water while the disposal is turned off.
