In hopes of having property owners not have unforeseen Las Vegas garbage disposal repairs, and to make sure it stays clean and smell free, we put this infographic together to highlight the products that one ought to not put into a disposer.

One of the leading food waste items to not put in a garbage disposal unit is grease. It seems harmless enough since it is mostly a fluid and soft, but can quickly congest pipes considering that it can stick to the insides of sink pipes. Grease is best put in the trash bin. Other products that ought to not go in are bones, onion and potato peels, celery, shells from shell fish, large amounts of coffee grounds, and pastas (which can also make a sticky mess in ones drain pipes).

In terms of appropriately running the disposal device, make certain that just cold water is made use of and have the water running on high prior to turning on the disposer. Then, in small quantities put food waste into it. When all the waste is chopped up, run the disposal for 30 to 60 seconds longer. And obviously, keep the water running till after the disposal is switched off.

To keep the disposal blades clean and free of particles, slice up a couple of ice cubes to clean it. Also, chop lemon slices or other citrus peels to assist in keeping odors away.
