When Does Your Garbage Disposal Need to be Replaced?

Hello Customers!


The garbage disposal may not be the shiniest, most expensive appliance in your kitchen. However, it can be a very efficient tool and it’s important to know when to consider replacing it!


We get calls every day when customers notice their disposal is dripping or leaking. It’s a good idea to look under your kitchen sink occasionally! Sometimes we don’t realize a leak has been happening until it has occurred for some time, leading to damage to the cabinet or even the floor underneath.

There are modern disposals that are more efficient, quieter, and more powerful than ever before! Sometimes customers are just interested in an upgrade! There’s no harm in replacing a disposal to upgrade to a newer model, even if it isn't leaking or making harsh sounds.

These are just a few of the reasons you may consider investing in a garbage disposal replacement. Give us a call and we’ll take care of your garbage disposal today!
