Garbage disposals are common features in many American kitchens. These devices are attached to the sink drain, and their purpose is to grind up food waste into tiny pieces so it can be washed down the pipes and into the sewer system. A garbage disposal can make it easier to get rid of food scraps, and they prevent those scraps from stinking up your kitchen.
Of course, not every household has one, and even those that do will need to get theirs replaced from time to time. If you want to install a garbage disposal in your kitchen, our team at On-Deck Plumbing encourages you to hire professionals to do it for you. Keep reading to learn a few reasons why garbage disposal installation is a job best left to the experts.
- Safety – Because a garbage disposal is made of sharp, spinning blades, it’s easy to see how a mistake in installation could lead to serious problems. Experienced plumbers, like those on our team, have the right experience to make sure your disposal is installed correctly and safe for you and your family to use.
- Insurance and Certification – Hiring professionals for garbage disposal installation may be necessary to keep your home insurance premiums low. Many insurance companies require certain types of home repair to be completed by professionals only, including things like garbage disposal installation. In addition, our team can certify our work, which will make it easier to sell your home in the future if you ever decide to do so.
- Convenience – While you might be skilled enough to figure out how to install a garbage disposal yourself, the whole garbage disposal installation process will go much faster and more smoothly if you hire our technicians from the start. We have installed countless disposals over the years, so we can get the job done as efficiently as possible.
