Garbage Disposal Installation & Repair for Wylie, TX & the Surrounding Area

Garbage disposals are one of the handiest kitchen additions around. When preparing food or cleaning up after a meal, you don’t have to worry about clogging the drain with bits of food. Many older homes were built in times before garbage disposals were available to the public, making the day to day creation of meals way more complex than they need to be. Even if you currently live in an older home, implementing a garbage disposal into your sink may be more doable than you think. Our team at Harvey West Plumbing installs a number of garbage disposals regularly, and can help transform your current kitchen into a more functional space.

If you are in need of service on your disposal or a replacement of your existing disposal, call Harvey West Plumbing.

We service and install all makes and models of disposals, including Eastman, Waste King, InSinkErator, KitchenAid, Kenmore, and Whirlpool.

Your garbage disposal can jam if something solid or tough gets lodged between the spinning plate and the inside wall of the disposal. There aren’t many parts of your garbage disposal that you can or should service yourself, so be sure to call a service professional for any repairs your disposal may need. Also, be sure to never put your hands near the opening while it is running.

Why You Need to Hire a Plumber to Install Your Garbage Disposal

Garbage disposals are a common sight these days, appearing in 50% of all U.S. homes. While some of those units were undoubtedly put in directly by the homeowner, typically garbage disposal installation is a job best left to a professional plumber. Considering garbage disposals require both running water and electricity, a dangerous combination, the knowledge and training of a professional plumber will help ensure the proper precautions are taken to make the project as safe as possible. The work will be completed more efficiently as well. Garbage disposal installation can typically be performed in just a few hours, and is not particularly costly. If a sink is ready to have a unit installed, the task should be quite easy. Having to fully prepare a sink, however, can be more involved, and you will be thankful to have an expert handling the process for you. With our team, you can trust that your garbage disposal installation will get done right the first time!

Benefits to Installing a Garbage Disposal Installing a garbage disposal under your kitchen sink is a great option if you’re not sure what to do about food waste in your home. Rather than throwing food scraps away or composting them, you can simply add your leftovers to the disposal and turn it on. The garbage disposal will then grind the food up that can pass through your plumbing without clogging it. Garbage disposal installation can benefit your home in many different ways:

  • Cut Down on Trash: With less food waste to throw out, you reduce the amount of garbage to throw away. It will take you longer to fill up a trash bag and you’ll cut down on trips to the trash can.
  • Eliminate Kitchen Odors: Once you dispose of your food scraps through a garbage disposal, it won’t be left to rot in your trash can. Most kitchen odor is virtually eliminated this way.
  • Fewer Plumbing Problems: The food scraps that you send through a garbage disposal are ground up, creating less pressure on pipes and reducing your likelihood of developing leaks or other issues.
  • Protect the Environment: Garbage disposals help you generate less trash, helping you use fewer bags and reduce the amount of garbage you send to landfills.
  • Save Money: With reduced costs for plumbing repairs, trash bags, and additional services, you’ll save money and stress over time.
