Garbage disposals are a popular household convenience, but jammed or clogged garbage disposals can become a huge plumbing problem quickly. Southgate Plumbing’s plumbing professionals are on call to provide garbage disposal services including residential garbage disposal installation, garbage disposal repair, and clearing clogged garbage disposals. Commercial garbage disposal services are also available.

If you have a garbage disposal, it is vital that the unit and garbage disposal plumbing are in good working order to prevent kitchen drain clogs or backups. Garbage disposals can be damaged if non-food objects like silverware, sponges, or straws end up in the appliance. Garbage disposal clogs can be caused by food items like fats or grease, bones, or highly fibrous foods like celery.

If you suspect you have a clogged garbage disposal, it is important to contact Southgate Plumbing plumbers quickly to perform garbage disposal installation or garbage disposal repair. A clogged garbage disposal can lead to clogs further down drain lines, leading to more severe drain clogs or backups that will need repair. Southgate Plumbing plumbers can repair almost every brand name and size of garbage disposal, extending the life of your garbage disposal for many years. Common garbage disposal repairs include:

  • Leaks – Worn out seals allow waste and odors to escape, potentially causing health concerns or wet work areas.
  • Jams – Excessive food or hard-to-grind items prohibit motion of the blades.
  • Humming – The motor or impellor may be burned out.
  • Nothing happens – The unit might need to be reset or connection needs to be checked.
  • Won’t drain – The unit may not be chopping food properly and waste may have clogged the drain pipe.

Call Southgate Plumbing today and ask about our commercial garbage disposal services or schedule a garbage disposal repair.

If you need a new garbage disposal installed or an existing garbage disposal replaced, a Southgate Plumbing plumbing professional can recommend the most efficient unit that will meet your household needs and budget. Southgate Plumbing plumbers can also install the unit and the garbage disposal plumbing. Our technicians will ensure it is properly connected to the power source and your plumbing system. Call your local Southgate Plumbing plumbing expert and ask about our garbage disposal installation services.

The kitchens in many businesses rely on properly functioning garbage disposals in their commercial sinks. Commercial garbage disposals are an important component in reducing the chance of clogged drains, as they chop up food waste before it enters drain pipes.

Commercial kitchen garbage disposals come in many different styles and horsepower models to handle a wide range of volumes. Light duty garbage disposals are generally required in fast food restaurants, convenience stores, delicatessens and office kitchens. Schools, hospitals, and medium-sized restaurants can usually use a medium duty model. Large restaurants, hotels, factories and kitchens that handle high volumes of waste will require a heavy duty commercial garbage disposal.

Unfortunately, regardless of whether the unit is heavy or light duty, commercial garbage disposals can be overwhelmed by large volumes of waste or be damaged by non-food items such as straws, silverware, or dishcloths. Commercial garbage disposal clogs usually require professional service. Southgate Plumbing’s plumbing experts can install, repair or replace any type of commercial garbage disposal. Restaurants, hospitals, schools, hotels and other establishments can’t afford downtime in the kitchen, so our plumbers are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for commercial garbage disposal repairs. We’ll provide a free written estimate, get the job done fast and professionally, and we stand behind our work with our no-hassle guarantee.
