If you’ve had to call a plumbing company to address a clogged or broken garbage disposal, you may be wondering what you can do to keep if functioning at its best. The easiest way to maintain your garbage disposal is to use it correctly by keeping the wrong foods out.

Avoid putting expandable foods such as pasta and rice in your garbage disposal as well as large bones, which can clog pipes and damage the grinder blades. Grease can harm your garbage disposal and to the rest of your home’s plumbing, and it’s advised not to use hot water when running your disposal to avoid liquefying any grease, which can then coat and build up on your pipes.
