Benefits of Installing a New Garbage Disposal

If you current garbage disposal is breaking down frequently, making unpleasant grinding sounds you’ve never heard before, or causing sink clogs because it isn’t cutting up food waste efficiently enough, then you should consider a replacement unit. With all the work that a disposal does in a kitchen, it will eventually wear down. (And, if you don’t have a kitchen disposal at all, you should definitely have one installed as soon as possible.)

For installation of a new garbage disposal in Salt Lake City, call At Your Service Plumbing, Heating & Air. We offer extensive plumbing services for kitchens that will keep your pipes and appliances healthy and efficient.

Advantages of a new garbage disposal installation

  • Reduced clogs and other damage to your pipes: The whole reason to have a garbage disposal in the first place is to prevent food particles from creating blockages in drains. If a garbage disposal isn’t doing a thorough job of slicing up food waste before sending it into the wastewater line, it will start to send large food deposits into the pipes. This will cause frequent clogging to occur in the plumbing system. It will also cause damage to the pipes by increasing water pressure. Unless you plan to unclog and clean your pipes once a month (and you don’t want to) you should have a new disposal put in.
  • Save energy: Disposals do not use much energy to run, which is one reason they are so useful in a home. But when a disposal starts to malfunction and wear down, it will begin to put a strain on the power and raise your bills—all to do a less effective job than it once did. (You will also waste water trying to wash down the food that keeps getting stuck inside a malfunctioning disposal.)
  • You can purchase a more efficient model: A newer garbage disposal will work better than your old one ever did. Purchasing and installing a new garbage disposal will take advantage of newer technology in waste disposal that will benefit your plumbing and make your kitchen more sanitary.

Installing a new garbage disposal is not a DIY task: the new system must fit perfectly to your sink so it does not leak and has the right flow of water and waste through it so it will not jam up the drainpipe. (Keep in mind that disposals can also be dangerous if mishandled.) For your new garbage disposal in Salt Lake City, UT, contact the professionals at At Your Service Plumbing, Heating & Air. We are also ready for disposal repairs 24 hours a day.

During this very unusual time, we have put a plan in place to do our part to help keep our community safe. First and foremost, we are going to stay CALM, PATIENT, KIND, and POSITIVE!

There is much to consider regarding the COVID-19 virus (Coronavirus) and its possible transmission in your home. While there are various and effective indoor air quality measures available to help protect your safety, including duct sanitization, ultraviolet (UV) germicidal light treatment, and HEPA air filters, they alone cannot protect from all forms of COVID-19 transmission. It is important to follow all official guidelines for preventing the spread of this virus.

Because we have a direct impact on the indoor environment, here are practical steps we are going to take to keep people safe:

  • Wash our hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and water
  • Cover our nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing
  • Wash our uniforms every day including cleaning our belts
  • Stay home if we are feeling sick
  • Offer a warm smile and friendly greeting instead of a handshake
  • Wear shoe covers and latex gloves in homes and businesses
  • Wipe down surfaces and equipment touched in a client’s home with disinfectant wipes
  • Wipe down door handles, steering wheels, gear shift lever every day
  • Wipe down pens, clipboards, tablets, cell phones, and anything else passes between techs and clients.
  • We have masks on each truck and will wear them at client’s discretion (Currently the CDC does not recommend that people wear masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19)
  • We are complying with all recommendations and guidelines from state agencies and will be proactive in our efforts to see that our team members and clients are protected.

As the situation unfolds, we will take each day one at a time and ensure we are being smart, supportive, and helping all those we can in our community.

Thank you for your continued support!
