How to Clean Your Garbage Disposal

You clean your kitchen appliances on a monthly, or maybe quarterly, basis, but do you ever think your garbage disposal needs a thorough cleaning as well? The truth is, garbage disposals need as much maintenance as every other household machinery. Our expert plumbers recommend that they are cleaned at least once a week to maintain their efficiency. If you’ve never cleaned your garbage disposal before, it’s super easy. Take a look at the infographic below, gather all the necessary tools, and get to work.


The next time you use your garbage disposal, try to remember that it’s not actually meant for garbage. Disposing of the wrong food can lead to severe drain clogs that only a professional drain cleaning can solve. If you have any questions on how to maintain your garbage disposal, contact a Magnolia plumber today.
