Roto-Rooter's plumbing professionals are on call 24/7 to provide garbage disposal services including residential garbage disposal installation, garbage disposal repair, and clearing clogged garbage disposals. Commercial garbage disposal services are also available.

If you have a garbage disposal, it is vital that the unit and garbage disposal plumbing are in good working order to prevent kitchen drain clogs or backups. Garbage disposals can be damaged if non-food objects like silverware, sponges, or straws end up in the appliance. Garbage disposal clogs can be caused by food items like fats or grease, bones, or highly fibrous foods like celery.

Learn what not to put down a garbage disposal.

If you suspect you have a clogged garbage disposal, it is important to contact Roto-Rooter plumbers quickly. A clogged garbage disposal can lead to clogs further down drain lines, leading to more severe drain clogs or backups that will need repair. Roto-Rooter plumbers can repair most every brand name and size of garbage disposal, extending the life of your garbage disposal for many years. Common garbage disposal repairs include:

  • Leaks - Worn out seals allow waste and odors to escape, potentially causing health concerns or wet work areas.
  • Jams - Excessive food or hard-to-grind items prohibit motion of the blades.
  • Humming - The motor or impellor may be burned out.
  • Nothing happens - The unit might need to be reset or connection needs to be checked.
  • Won't drain - The unit may not be chopping food properly and waste may have clogged the drain pipe.

If you need a new garbage disposal installed or an existing garbage disposal replaced, a Roto-Rooter plumbing professional can recommend the most efficient unit that will meet your household needs and budget. Roto-Rooter plumbers can also install the unit and the garbage dispoal plumbing. Our technicians will ensure it is properly connected to the power source and your plumbing system.

RESTAURANT AND COMMERCIAL GARBAGE DISPOSAL SERVICES

The kitchens in many businesses rely on properly functioning garbage disposals in their commercial sinks. Commercial garbage disposals are an important component in reducing the chance of clogged drains, as they chop up food waste before it enters drain pipes.
Commercial kitchen garbage disposals come in many different styles and horsepower models to handle a wide range of volumes. Light duty garbage disposals are generally required in fast food restaurants, convenience stores, delicatessens and office kitchens. Schools, hospitals, and medium-sized restaurants can usually use a medium duty model. Large restaurants, hotels, factories and kitchens that handle high volumes of waste will require a heavy duty commercial garbage disposal.
Unfortunately, regardless of whether the unit is heavy or light duty, commercial garbage disposals can be overwhelmed by large volumes of waste or be damaged by non-food items such as straws, silverware, or dishcloths. Commercial garbage disposal clogs usually require professional service. Roto-Rooter’s plumbing experts can install, repair or replace any type of commercial garbage disposal. Restaurants, hospitals, schools, hotels and other establishments can’t afford downtime in the kitchen, so our plumbers are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for commercial garbage disposal repairs.
