Just about every home in Los Angeles has a garbage disposal and they certainly make life easier. However, they also can come with some problems of their own and sometimes can be difficult to fix without proper assistance. Garbage disposals are electrical motor driven grinders that are installed beneath the kitchen sink to break down waste or left over food into tiny disposable scraps. It is a key part to an unclogged drain because without it, the pipes may get jammed with a gluten rich pasta strands or a shard of tough T-bone. Coffee grounds, grease and other chunks off food can also leave your pipes sluggish or jam the device and leave your sink full of water. When yours starts to hum, call in Rooters on Time so that the rest of your plumbing doesn’t suffer.
