Frequently Asked Questions About Garbage Disposals

How long do garbage disposals last?

Most modern garbage disposals are designed to last up to 10 years. If your garbage disposal is more than 10 years old, it may be time to consider garbage disposal replacement.

Will my dishwasher run if my garbage disposal is broken?

Yes — if your dishwasher and garbage disposal system are connected, it’s okay to run the dishwasher if the garbage disposal is malfunctioning. However, you must wash off large food remnants before placing dishes in the dishwasher to avoid clogging your dishwasher.

How can I reduce the odor coming from my garbage disposal?

Keep your garbage disposal fresh by sprinkling half a cup of baking soda down your disposal, followed by some vinegar. Allow the mixture to sit for 15 minutes before washing away with hot water.

If your disposal still smells, you may need professional cleaning: Trust The Pipe Doctor to get the job done right by calling (703) 388-6529 today!

Do garbage disposals need to be emptied?

While it’s not necessary to empty your garbage disposal, it is essential to maintain its cleanliness. To keep your unit operating as it should, we recommend cleaning it once every two to three weeks.

It’s also wise to clean your garburator frequently, which will keep organic debris from building up and rotting, contributing to foul odors from your system.
