Garbage Disposal Units in Clovis, NM

A garbage disposal unit is a frequent option for many homeowners, and many homes are equipped at the time of construction. It allows you to grind up food scraps effectively and safely so that such organic waste can be disposed of directly through the sewer main, whether yours goes to a septic tank or to a municipal sewer line. Many homeowners enjoy the convenience that it gives them during kitchen clean-up, among other benefits. We offer new garbage disposal units for installation throughout the Clovis, NM area.

Benefits of a Garbage Disposal Unit

A garbage disposal unit is a relatively simple device. Horror movie scenarios aside, it does not actually operate like a blender, though that does not make it any less dangerous. It uses a serrated blade rotating at high speed. Effectively, it uses centrifugal force to pull food scraps down into the system where they are ground up into a paste.

The benefits of a sink disposal unit are clear. Originally designed to prevent large amounts of organic waste winding up in landfills, they allow such waste to go through the water treatment process, therefore avoiding many of the environmental side effects of overflowing landfills. Moreover, they add great convenience to any kitchen setup as you can often just grind certain food debris up instead of allowing it to get clogged within the drain pipe and trap.

Does Your Sink Disposal Need Service?

Disposals cannot be used indiscriminately. They must be used carefully. What we mean by that is that you cannot just put anything down the disposal unit. Coffee grounds, starchy foods (potato peels, rice, pasta, etc.), and animal bones will often overwhelm the power of your disposal unit. Incorrect operation of your sink disposal unit is likely to lead to increased repairs and a premature replacement.

If you think that your disposal unit is not working just as it ought to, then contact our team. You may find that it stops working entirely or that it makes an awful noise during operation. We can have your system back up and running in no time at all with our garbage disposal repair service. We work with all major makes and models, and we’re eager to get your kitchen plumbing back up and running. Contact Mark Carpenter Plumbing today!
