Households around the world feature in-sink garbage disposals to make it easier to get rid of discarded food scraps while cooking—but if you call that device a "garburator," you're probably from Canada. Despite our uniquely Canadian nickname for them, our garburators operate just like the rest of the world's garbage disposals, and they also occasionally suffer deterioration or damage that requires Edmonton garburator repair services from an experienced Edmonton plumber.

Frequently Asked Garburator Repair Questions

What Are the Signs I Need Garburator Repair?

If your garburator isn't working at all, it's pretty obvious that you need Edmonton garburator repair services from a dependable plumber. But sometimes it's not so obvious and homeowners aren't sure if they should call their plumber or just see if the problem goes away on its own. If you know some signs of trouble, you can get the help you need sooner rather than later and stop the damage from spiraling out of control. Some warning signs homeowners should take notice of are:

  • Unpleasant odors that don't go away even with cleaning

  • Takes a long time for water to move through your sink drain

  • The garburator unit is leaking under the sink

  • The unit is producing unusual humming, grinding, or squeaking noises

  • The unit turns itself off after a few seconds or seems to be on but doesn't grind scraps up

If you notice any of the above problems or other issues, give us a call and let our Edmonton Garburator repair service specialists take a look at what's going on so we can get the issue resolved for you.

How Do I Get Rid of Odours From My Garburator?

Your garburator needs the occasional cleaning to prevent food particles from getting trapped in there and rotting, which creates those nasty food waste smells. Fortunately, cleaning your unit is generally pretty easy and you don't have to take it apart or do any manual scrubbing. Here are a few tips to try:

  • Put a big handful of ice cubes into the disposal and add a few tablespoons of salt to give it some grittiness, then turn it on and let it chew up the ice. This not only helps to clean it out, but it can also sharpen the blades. Once the ice is gone, chase it down with a blast of cold water.

  • Cut a citrus peel into strips and feed the strips into the unit one by one with the cold water running.

  • Put half a cup of baking soda into the disposal and then pour in half a cup of vinegar and cover with a wet rag. Give it five minutes or so to fizz away, then rinse with cold water.
