Garbage Disposal Smells

We have all probably experienced bad smells coming from the garbage disposal of our homes at one point or another. It is important to use and maintain your disposal properly.  Terrible smaells coming from your kitchen drain are often the result of a  a clog in the kitchen drain that prevents food items from going down the drain. When a clog occurs food items will sit and rot in the garbage disposal.

Pouring vinegar or lemon juice down the garbage disposal while it is running will often eliminate the smell. However getting rid of the odor is not enough as you need to make sure to clear the clog so that the odor does not resurface. Often it will require the help of a plumber to clear the obstruction from the drain. If that is the case give us a call at 864 663 6105.
