How to Avoid Clogging Problems

Is clogging a frequent problem? There are a few things you can do to keep your disposal from clogging:

  • Make sure to run a good amount of hot water when you are using your garbage disposal. Not only does this help food go through the disposal more easily, it also helps remove debris from your drain pipes.
  • Do not let stringy foods go down the disposal. (i.e. chicken skin, celery, banana peels, and the like)
  • Never, ever pour grease down the drain or disposal.

If your disposal is clogged, our keen technicians will not only diagnose your problem, they can fix it on the spot. Valley Plumbing and Drain Cleaning offers several options for repair to make sure your specific problem is effectively resolved.
