Garbage disposals are a modern convenience that we often take for granted. This electrical appliance is under your kitchen sink and designed to quickly grind food into small pieces. This helps prevent clogs from disposed food and minimizes waste in landfills.
Because such a large amount of material passes through it, a garbage disposal repair is inevitable. If the unit stalls, there is often a reset button underneath the sink on the bottom or back of the disposal. If a restart does not solve the problem, call our expert plumbers to promptly assess the issue.
