Reasons To Get A Garbage Disposal Unit For Your Home


If you don’t have a garbage disposal in your home, you should seriously consider fixing the situation. Garbage disposals not only increase the resale value of your home, it also provides you you with plenty of benefits in the meantime.First off, it allows you to send all your food waste down your drain rather than into your garbage can. Having all that food sitting around can attract bugs and larger critters to your garbage can. As the food sits, it also smells. Rather than the food being out of your space right away, throwing food waste in the garbage means that you will have that small in your kitchen or near your home until it is time for your weekly pickup.

In addition, the ground up food you send through the disposal will serve a second purpose. If you throw your food in the garbage, it will sit in the dump, and add excess methane to leach into the atmosphere. If the food is instead sent with the sewage, the excess methane can be captured and used to generate energy. The waste itself can be broken down and used as fertilizer.

Think of the simplicity of your weekly fridge cleaning. The food goes down the drain, rinse the container, flip the switch and you are done. You don’t have waste a bag just filling it with old food, which you then have to take out and replace. Anything other than large bones just goes in the sink and the dish goes straight from there into the dishwasher. It might be just 15 minutes a week saved, but that time will add up over the life of your dishwasher.

There are plenty of professionals out there ready to add a garbage disposal to your sink. Once you have one, you will wonder how you ever lived without it. Are you thinking about getting a garbage disposal for your Nashville home? Call Green Hills Plumping at (615) 866-1917 and get started today!
