As most people who have decent food or garbage disposal unit will tell you they’re great things. They get rid of all those smelly food scraps, peelings, tea bags and all manners of organic waste-reducing what you throw out but also keeping smelly scraps of food that insects love to feed and grow on away in large part.
If you want to know how to beat the bad odor and keep your waste disposer free of smelly odors and bacteria build-up, here are ways on how to properly clean smelly garbage disposal in Naples, Florida from Appliance Doctor Inc.
Turn off the fuse connected to the garbage disposal. This way there’s no question of anyone getting hurt or damaged. Use a pair of tongs to reach into the disposal to remove any debris that hasn’t been ground or is stuck in the blades, and then turn the fuse back on. It’s important to flush the drain line of the disposal to clear it of any buildup. Plug your sink and fill with two to four inches of water, then turn on the disposal while removing the plug, which pulls all the water through the drain line and thoroughly rinses the garbage disposal. To refresh and clean garbage disposal blades, pour a one-quarter cup of baking soda down the drain along with one to two tablespoons of vinegar. Turn on the water and run the disposal for a 10 count. Now give the whole disposal a final freshening by dropping a garbage disposal refresher or some citrus rinds down the drain and run the disposal. There may be a clog or more serious mater involved, in which case contact Appliance Doctor Inc. for a cleaning a service call.
The worst thing that can happen in your kitchen is a bad odor. Even though the design of the garbage disposal pulverizes and removes kitchen waste, sometimes food particles can become trapped underneath the blades, on the sides of the machine and in the drainpipe. This creates the perfect environment for mold and bacteria to grow and produce unpleasant odors and unhealthy spores. As the bacteria and mold persist and grow, so does the smell. Routine cleaning of your garbage disposal at least weekly with one of these techniques will help to keep it odor-free. Always remember to run water while using your garbage disposal to help keep it clean and germ-free. Garbage disposals are appliances that do not respond well to abuse, so use caution when you toss items in it.
