Common Garbage Disposal Issues

Water & food waste backing up

Sometimes a large object or sticky and fibrous residue gets stuck in your garbage disposal and builds up in the drain. This build up doesn't allow water to flow through to effectively break down food and results in clogs.

Weird smelling odors.

Odors are caused by food waste caught in the disposal. Cleaning your garbage disposal can be dangerous due to the sharp blades and electricity used to power the unit, so call Rainforest Plumbing & Air and one of our friendly technicians will come out and thoroughly inspect and clean your garbage disposal.

Won't turn on or off

If your garbage disposal won't turn on or off you could have a problem with your disposal's power switch or the connected outlet. Give our technicians a call, we'll be able to quickly diagnose the issue and provide an efficient solution.

Not effectively breaking down food

Improper break down of food could be caused by a variety of issues, from the sharpness of the blades, to the power supply. If you’re finding that your unit isn't breaking down foods as fast as it used to, contact our garbage disposal repair experts to get it back on track.

Put Back Guarantee

Unlike other HVAC and Plumbing companies, when we’re done, we have skilled crews that can handle all of your put-back needs.

From finishing and painting, excavation and concrete, with Rainforest’s Put Back Policy you can rest assured, when we clean up, we leave your space better than we found it, guaranteed!

How Does Garbage Disposal Work?

Garbage disposals allow you to grind up food into small pieces so that it easily passes through sewage drain pipes.

Garbage disposals are attached to the bottom of the drain in your kitchen sink and sharp, rotating blades grind food waste as it’s fed into the drain.

Running cold water while the disposal is operating helps push food down without melting it, allowing for quicker disposal and less chance of clogs.

Rainforest came out to replace my garbage disposal which cracked and definitely needed to be replaced. They gave me some options to consider on the spot and I went with their recommendation, which I have been happy with.


I was well taken care of and the service was excellent! He also explained the use of the disposal. Thank you.
