Expert Clogged Garbage Disposal Repair in Philadelphia
Quick Garbage Disposal Repair and Replacement
There Are Many Reasons for Garbage Disposal Failure
As a food processor for your kitchen waste, your garbage disposal works hard at grinding food so that it can be safely flushed down the drain. The blades do amazing work, but they get broken or jammed when they encounter the wrong items. When your disposal fails, it’s not usually a self-serve problem —- it’s time to call for garbage disposal repair. At Guaranteed, we’ve seen it all, and we’re here to get your disposal running. A few of the common issues we find in clogged garbage disposals throughout Philadelphia homes include:
- Hard stuff in the grinder damaging the blades
- Slippery stuff in the grinder jamming the blades
- Drain below is clogged, usually in the bend of the P trap
- Overheating the motor from constant hard use
- Time has worn it out, showing as seals leaking or complete shutdown
