Our Garbage Disposal Services

Garbage Disposal Installation

Believe it or not, a garbage disposal can truly complete your kitchen. Whether you are an avid cook or wash most of your dishes in the sink, it’s important to have a system that can safely get rid of extra food waste without causing a clog! By having a garbage disposal professionally installed in your Voorhees, Mt Laurel, or Sicklerville home, your overall kitchen experience will be greatly improved.

Garbage Disposal Replacement

There comes a time in the lifespan of every garbage disposal when repairs just won’t cut it anymore. Like most appliances in your home, your garbage disposal will start to have problems more often as it ages. When you notice your system’s performance diminishing, it may be time to consider replacing it with a brand-new one.

Garbage Disposal Repair and Maintenance

If you notice that your garbage disposal isn’t working the way it’s supposed to, don’t try to solve the problem yourself! Because your system has sharp components, it can be dangerous to tackle the issue head-on. Instead, give the expert plumbers at Bovio Rubino Service a call. Our team is experienced with garbage disposals and can determine the problem in no time!

Garbage disposal maintenance is relatively simple—you just have to keep an eye on what you send down it! Here are some items that you can put down your disposal:

  • Vegetable ends
  • Soft food matter
  • Ice cubes
  • Dish soap
  • Small amounts of citrus peels (lemons, oranges, limes, etc.)

And here’s a list of materials you should save for the trash can:

  • Fat from meats (grease)
  • Bone fragments
  • Kernels
  • Fruit seeds and pits
  • Eggshells
  • Coffee grounds
  • Onion and potato skins
  • Banana peels
  • Fibrous or stringy veggies like celery

By keeping an eye on the items you send down the drain, your garbage disposal will run smoothly and efficiently no matter what.

Frequently Asked Questions about Garbage Disposals in Voorhees, NJ

Despite the convenience of having an installed garbage disposal, these systems can be fairly hard to learn much about on your own. Have a question? The certified plumbers at Bovio Rubino Service have answers.

How do you reset a garbage disposal?

The reset button located on the bottom of your disposal (the big red one!) is functionally like a breaker. If the disposal makes no noise, isn’t working, or has overheated, it may “trip” and need to be reset. This is your go-to in an attempt to fix the disposal, but if it trips twice in one day or this doesn’t fix the problem, it’s time to start dialing your garbage disposal repairman!

How long does a garbage disposal typically last?

Provided that the disposal has been maintained and used correctly, you should be able to expect around 10 years of good service without needing a garbage disposal replacement.

Why is my garbage disposal humming and not working?

When a disposal hums or produces other noises but isn’t otherwise working, the odds are high that either the disposal blades have worn down or that there is something jammed in the disposal that is preventing normal operation. DO NOT attempt to address this on your own! Disposals are designed to chew up meat, food waste, and bone, and it doesn’t care who the bones belong to.

Do plumbers fix garbage disposals?

Disposal repair falls into an odd place in the world of home services. Many electricians, plumbers, and general contractors handle this service—though if you had to pick one, we would recommend the plumber. Luckily for you, Bovio Rubino Service covers all of the above, and we have no trouble performing complete repairs. Note that if you need garbage disposal replacement, you need to get in touch with a plumber to ensure drain lines and water lines are intact.
