How to Prolong the Life of your Food Waste Disposer

Whether you are planning to purchase or already own a food waste disposer we all have a good understanding of how much one of these wonderful machines could cost and if you do not know, well, it ranges from anywhere from $150 to $500 and that is not including how much you got to pay for someone to install it.

So, why not take some time to read this post on some tips on prolonging the life of your food waste disposer? Here are some do’s and don’ts that could help you to begin doing some things and stop you from doing others.

1.Grind ice

Have you ever wondered how would you sharpen the blades inside the food waste disposer if they go dull? Will you need to take it apart and sharpen each blade? Or will you have to hire someone to replace the blades?

Well, I have good news! You can put a few ice chunks in your garbage disposal from time to time. The ice will help keep those blades sharp so they can handle other things you put down.

2. Avoid high fiber materials

3. Run cold water

4. Avoid Bones and Shellfish Shells

5. Avoid Fruit Seeds and Pits

6. Never Ever Put your Hand in the Waste Drain Disposer

P.S. Food disposals, also known as garburators, are banned in a couple of municipalities in Ontario including Toronto, Ottawa, Markham, Vaughan, and Guelph.
