Commercial Garbage Disposal

Commercial Garbage Disposal Repair in Chapel Hill, Durham and Raleigh

Commercial Garbage Disposals are a critical piece of kitchen equipment. They dutifully chop up all types of food and reduce the likelihood of clogs in the plumbing system, and dispose of the variety of food waste generated by a commercial kitchen of any size. The way the disposals are used often make it difficult to succeed as an appliance. They sometimes feel like they can’t win. A large variety and volume of food is feed through them along with various restaurant flotsam (dishrags, contact lenses, straws, forks, fat is is a stone cold killer of disposals). Understandably, the disposal becomes emotionally discouraged and experiences one of the following issues and requires professional treatment.

Common issues requiring repairs on Commercial Garbage Disposals

  • Leaks – Worn out seals allow waste and odors to escape, potentially causing health concerns or wet work areas.
  • Jams – Excessive food or hard-to-grind items prohibit motion of the blades.
  • Humming – The motor or impellor may be burned out.
  • Nothing happens – The unit might need to be reset or connection needs to be checked.
  • Won’t drain – The unit may not be chopping food properly and waste may have clogged the drain pipe.
  • Waste Remains in the Disposal
  • Odor from the garbage disposal
  • Disposal will not turn off

Common Repairs on Commercial Garbage Disposals

  • Replace Damaged Blades
  • Replace Damaged Motor
  • Free Clog or Jam in Drain or disposal

Most commercial garbage disposal repairs fall into three main categories.  A leaking garbage disposal is generally caused by faulty seals that eventually wear out over time and potentially leave a foul odor behind.  Those constant drips are a nuisance in your commercial kitchen or restaurant dish area and unfortunately, health inspectors will either want you to repair your leaky commercial garbage disposal or replace it.

Other common garbage disposal repairs are required when either the bearings or the motor wear out and the restaurant garbage disposal just hums or backs up into the other sink.  Unfortunately, commercial garbage disposal repair costs are almost as expensive as commercial garbage disposal replacement. In most cases, operators end up spending way too much money to only buy themselves a few more years until their existing garbage disposal breaks down again and the whole process eventually is repeated.

Three Tips for Cleaning a Commercial Garbage Disposal
Need help cleaning your commercial garbage disposal? Over time, a commercial garbage disposal can acquire foul smells from the many foods moving through its blades. But, don’t fret, there are ways to remedy the stinky situation. Read on to learn the top three tips for cleaning a commercial garbage disposal, and get used to having a sweet-smelling kitchen:

Tip #1: Citrus is Calling Your Name

If you’re already peeling citrus, throw a few peels in your garbage disposal and run water as you grind the disposal. You’ll clean the blades in the process, and your disposal will emit a lovely citrus smell.

Tip #2: Lava It Up

Dump about 1/2 cup of baking soda in your garbage disposal. Trace that with about a cup of vinegar. Allow the mixture to foam and rise — much like a volcano for 5 to 10 minutes, and then flush it with hot water. You’ll clean and deodorize at the same time.

Tip #3: Ice, Ice, Baby

Throw a handful of ice cubes into your garbage disposal. Flip on the water, and let your disposal grind. You’ll dislodge foul-smelling food particles and give your disposal a fresh start. A commercial garbage disposal often is much more powerful than standard residential ones, but it’s always a good idea to grind ice in small amounts. You never want to overwhelm a unit.
