Garbage Disposals are worth it


If you own your home, having a garbage disposal will make it easier to dispose of food. A garbage disposal can be installed in 30 minutes or less by hiring a licensed plumber. The work is guaranteed and you do not have to worry about causing a flood or leak that your homeowner insurance will not cover. Here are 3 reasons why a garbage disposal is a must in your home.

Kitchen Cleanup – Once you have cooked a large meal and have fed your loved ones, it is time to clean the kitchen. Instead of scraping each plate in the trash, you can scrape the food into the sink and let your garbage disposal do the dirty work. Additionally, you will not have food rotting in your trash which may attract rats or other vermin such as mice or raccoons.

Green Cleaning – Using a garbage disposal leaves a smaller footprint on the environment. Garbage dumps are full of rotting food and by using a garbage disposal, you are using less trash and creating cleaner air. A garbage truck can only hold so many bags of trash. By using a disposal, you are saving the environment and indirectly using less fossil fuels.

Odor Free Home – By scraping your trash into garbage bags, you are allowing the scent of the trash to sit in your home. For example, tuna fish will smell up your entire home if not disposed of quickly. By using a garbage disposal, you can immediately remove that scent and provide an odor free home.

Garbage disposals come with different strengths or horsepower. You typically can purchase a 1/2, 3/4 or 1 horsepower garbage disposal. A 3/4 horsepower garbage disposal is the most commonly used garbage disposal for a single family home. These are just some examples of how a garbage disposal can be a good investment in your home.
