Garbage Disposal Installation
At Haley Mechanical, we know that homeowners in Ann Arbor and throughout Southeast Michigan rely heavily on their garbage disposals to make clean up of food waste easier. Your garbage disposal not only helps reduce the amount of trash, but it also does away with those unpleasant odors often experienced when food is thrown into the trash can. Whether your garbage disposal is clogged, leaking, or malfunctioning in some way, we can help.
Perhaps you don’t have a garbage disposal and are interested in having one installed. Maybe yours is old, and it is time to upgrade. We take care of new installations, repairs, and more.
Garbage Disposal Repair and Installation
You may not be sure whether it is a matter of repairing your garbage disposal, or whether it is time to replace. Most homeowners are not knowledgeable about how a garbage disposal operates, but when it malfunctions, it can be quite a headache. Some of the symptoms to pay attention to include the following:
- A humming noise when operating the garbage disposal
- A metal on metal grinding noise when in operation
- Your disposal becomes jammed frequently, even when grinding smaller food items
- You notice leaking beneath the sink under the disposal
- You have issues with your disposal turning on
- Unpleasant or foul odors are noticeable in the garbage disposal
- The “reset” button is one you have to use regularly
If you experience any of the above, give our Ann Arbor plumbing technicians a call right away. Trying to make repairs on a garbage disposal yourself can be dangerous because of the sharp blades in the appliance that grinds food waste. Chemical drain cleaners should not be used as they will cause further damage.
Is Your Garbage Disposal Leaking?
You never give much thought to garbage disposal problems until you have one. If your disposal is leaking due to a crack in the actual device, you will likely need to have it replaced with a new model. A qualified plumber can usually repair a leak that is coming from the seals in short order. We never recommend that homeowners try to remedy garbage disposal issues on your own.
If you are having problems with your garbage disposal or are interested in installing a new one, give our Southeast Michigan plumbing professionals a call today at 1-734-304-8980.
