The garbage disposal are in our home is something that we use on a regular basis and is one loyal servant that does not get much reward or regard to the job that it does. We dump almost everything down it except for large pieces of trash of course. However, bits and pieces of this and that end up going into it every single day. Recently I noticed a foul smell coming from the sink where the garbage disposal it was located. Also, while the dishwasher was running it apparently back washed up into the sink a very ugly nasty smell that was certainly noticeable. Your garbage disposal can use a bit of tender loving care from time to time.
After searching online for a bit I found one of the best ways to avoid foul smelling odors is to treat your garbage disposal once a month with a tablet that has been created to reduce clean and disinfect your garbage disposal. One of these tablets looks very much like a gel cap. They are about 1-inch by 1-inch and you turn the blades on and run water down the garbage disposal and talk one of these little miniature bombs into it. It instantly foams up, with blue color,within the garbage disposal and disinfect cleans and deodorizes more importantly in my mind the entire machine. By doing this once a month you can help eliminate unhealthy bacteria that grow inside of the garbage disposal.
However if you ever get into a situation like I did and you knew that your garbage disposal is dead. I was lucky enough to have a friend that I was able to call. A friend of mine owns a local HVAC company but they do much more than just HVAC meeting heating and air conditioning. This guy is like a mechanical genius in his been able to fix anything that I’ve ever owned. In less than 15 minutes he was able to come out and fix an air conditioning unit that I had several years ago. However, a garbage disposal was like Child’s Play for him. It’s good to have good friends that understand mechanics that you don’t. If you don’t know how to put in a garbage disposal and you’re looking for someone to do it. Check out your local Home Depot they know a lot of guys just like my friend.
