Myth

As long as I run the water, I can put just about anything in the garbage disposal.

Truth

You can not put just about anything down the garbage disposal. Unless you want to be outside, locating the overflow drain, and pulling potato peels and other gunk out of the drain by hand, heed this warning. If you’ve recently installed a heavy-duty, ultra-powerful disposal, some of this might not apply to you, but trust us, you’d rather be safe than sorry.

Never put grease, pasta, coffee grounds, celery, potato peels, artichoke leaves, pineapple husks, or cornhusks down the disposal. And if you are wondering about anything else, compost it or put it in the trash instead.

Myth

Lemons are best for cleaning the garbage disposal.

Truth

Lessons may make help mask the nasty smell, but they aren’t providing much cleaning power. Try baking soda and vinegar, followed by boiling water.

Myth

Faucets always drip a little.

Truth

No. They don’t. If your faucet is leaking, you are potentially wasting gallons of water every day. Call us. We’ll fix it for you lickity split.

Myth

It is a waste of money to do any preventative plumbing maintenance.

Truth

Your plumbing needs preventative maintenance. Just because everything seems to be working okay, doesn’t mean there isn’t a mess brewing deep down in your pipes. Check for leaks around your home once a year. Check drains annually for leaks. Even a slow leak is going to rot wood and create a moldy mess. Check appliances like your dishwasher, washing machine and fridge.

There is a lot more regular maintenance that should be done on your home’s plumbing to keep everything working in tip-top shape. Give us a call for a free estimate. A little prevention today can save you more than a little money later!
