how to clean a garbage disposal


Whether you’re renovating your kitchen or replacing an old unit, our team can install a new garbage disposal system that fits your needs and budget. We work with a variety of brands and models, ensuring you get a reliable and efficient system.


A malfunctioning garbage disposal can cause a lot of inconvenience. Our team can diagnose and fix common garbage disposal issues such as jamming, leaking, and overheating. We’re committed to restoring your system to optimal condition as quickly as possible.

Signs Your Garbage Disposal Needs to Be Replaced

While repairs can fix many issues, sometimes a replacement is the best option. Here are some signs that your garbage disposal may need to be replaced:

  1. Frequent Clogging: If your garbage disposal is clogging more often than usual, it may be a sign that it’s no longer able to handle the same amount of waste.

  2. Persistent Odors: Bad smells coming from your garbage disposal even after cleaning could indicate a bigger issue.

  3. Frequent Resets: If you find yourself constantly hitting the reset button, it’s a sign that your garbage disposal is struggling to perform.

  4. Poor Performance: If your garbage disposal takes longer to grind or can’t handle the same types of food it used to, it may be time for a replacement.

  5. Leaks: While some leaks can be repaired, persistent leaks may indicate a need for a new unit.

  6. Old Age: If your garbage disposal is more than 10 years old and frequently causing problems, it might be more cost-effective to replace it.

I called Larry early on a Monday morning for a basement that was taking on water. He came out right away and was very knowledgeable and replaced my ejector pump and dealt directly with the home warranty company.

I was surprised by how smooth the whole process went. I felt like Larry really cared and he had some great suggestions about what to do in the future. Top notch service!

Awesome job as usual! William installed a new toilet for us and fixed our kitchen sink faucet. He was on time and was very informative. He always does a great job! Thank you

We called Instant Plumbing at 1:00 p.m., they said they could send Angel out in about 30 minutes. I got 2 texts, the first one confirming arrival at 1:30 and the second one stating he was en route.

Angel arrived at 1:30 and it took him 30 minutes to fix the toilet that wouldn’t flush. Angel was friendly and provided speedy and accurate service. Would highly recommend Instant Plumbing.
