Whether you’re in the food industry or have a commercial kitchen for another reason, you depend on the garbage disposals in your sinks to work on demand. Having a kitchen sink disposal isn’t just for convenience. It’s also a great tool that lessens the chances of clogs occurring from food wastes. Problems arise, however, when commercial garbage disposers are overused and overstuffed. It’s not uncommon for non-organic material to find their way into the disposal. Items like silverware, kitchen trash, straws, and other non-food items that accidentally end up in the disposal can lead to breakdowns. That’s when you need drain cleaning and commercial garbage disposal services from a professional plumber in Southern California.

When a garbage disposal breaks, it’s usually due to one of the following reasons:
- Drain clogs: The unit may have been overstuffed or something is preventing the food from chopping up into small pieces.
- Jammed blades: Small bits of hard food or hardened grease can get in between the blades, preventing operation.
- Leaky units: Seals wear out on garbage disposals and lead to leaks below the sink. A smelly garbage disposal may also be a sign of a bad seal.
- Humming: Did you turn the unit on, but it only hums? This is a sign that the impeller or motor may be bad.
- No operation: If the unit doesn’t do anything, press the reset button. Also, check the circuit breaker to make sure the unit is getting power.
Regardless of the problem, it’s important to have your garbage disposal checked out right away. Quick repairs protect against clogged drains or total plumbing system backups. These situations make it impossible to operate your kitchen, which leads to a loss of production. Our professional plumbers replace, repair, and install all sizes, makes, and models of commercial garbage disposals.
