Your garbage disposal is a useful tool. If it is working properly, then it can make it easy for you to dispose of food waste. It also helps keep your drains unclogged. However, there are several things that you will need to do in order to maintain your garbage disposal.
You will need to run water every time that you use your garbage disposal. After you have finished your garbage disposal, you will need to let it run for an additional 20 seconds. If there are any particles left over after you finish using your garbage disposal, the water will get rid of them.
Toilets are one of those items that we take for granted. They’re always there when we need them and we seldom think that they might need repaired or replaced until one day, a calamity strikes.
This is one area where some preventive maintenance can avert a future calamity and all of its repercussions. If your toilet has cracks, it wobbles, you notice water around the base or on the floor under the tank, or it’s not flushing efficiently, your beleaguered toilet may need some attention.
Clogged toilets are as inevitable as death and taxes – and no more welcome in your home. But virtually all of us have to deal with this particular fact of life from time to time. In some instances, it’s possible to deal with the problem yourself without calling in a professional. All that’s required – when it’s successful – is a bit of know-how and a few basic household supplies.
