Garbage Disposal Services in St. Louis and Surrounding Areas

The friendly garbage disposal is one of those devices that has quietly changed the quality of life for millions of people. It helps break down foods that go down your drain, preventing clogs from forming and ensuring that foodstuffs are properly dealt with before moving into the St. Louis and surrounding areas sewer system.

When problems arise with your garbage disposal, it can create a big mess, as well as rendering one of the key parts of your kitchen all but unusable until it’s fixed. That’s why the friendly pros at Performance Plumbing provide comprehensive garbage disposal services throughout the St. Louis, MO area.

It Starts with Installation

A new garbage disposal should always be installed by a trained plumbing expert. That will eliminate early problems like leaks or faulty functioning, which can bedevil garbage disposals installed without the proper training or credentials. If you have a faulty garbage disposal that needs replacing, or if you have a sink without a garbage disposal that could use one, always count on a trained service to do so.

That’s where we come in. Our team is fully licensed and background checked, and our well stocked trucks come with all the materials we need to perform a quality garbage disposal installation or replacement throughout the St. Louis, MO area.

Watch for Signs of Trouble

The good news about trouble with your garbage disposal is that you’re apt to spot the signs of it very quickly. We use them multiple times a day in most cases – every time we prepare food – and if something goes wrong, it doesn’t take much time to spot it. Signs of a problem can include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Leaks, particularly puddles forming below the garbage disposal.
  • Unusual noises, such as grinding, humming or clanking noises.
  • A failure to turn on, which usually indicates electrical trouble.
  • Sinks which fail to drain, even when you run the garbage disposal.

If you spot the signs of trouble, first check the garbage disposal to make sure no utensils or other objects are preventing it from functioning. Then push the red reset button on the bottom of the unit to see if that corrects the issue. If neither of those troubleshooting steps works, call in a trained plumber immediately.

We’re Your Go–To Source

Garbage disposals have become essential parts of modern living, and when yours isn’t working the way you expect it to, it can disrupt the entire rhythm of your day. Installing a new one or repairing an existing one should be as smooth and free of problems as possible, which is why we recommend relying on expert plumbing with the training and licensing required to do the job right.

Our team possesses the training and experience you need to handle any issues with your garbage disposal, backed by our ironclad guarantee and the reliability that comes from a top rating from the Better Business Bureau. If you’re experiencing problems with your garbage disposal, or you think you need your old one replaced with a more efficient model, contact us today.
