Why Should I Install a Garbage Disposal? 

Garbage disposal Falls ChurchWhile many large appliances in your home can provide several benefits to the homeowner, having a new and improved garbage disposal professionally installed in your kitchen can actually improve the value of your home. A new garbage disposal does provide benefits that potential home buyers will look for when considering a house, and that initial investment with a professional plumbing company can have a huge return on investment. Here are just a few reasons to consider having a new garbage disposal installed.
Benefit to the Environment
More than 20% of all the waste that is dumped in a landfill is made up of food scraps. The operating costs of a garbage disposal versus the equipment needed to maintain those landfills is not even comparable. Each time that you place food scraps in the disposal you are doing your part to lessen your carbon footprint. The reduction in landfill debris is just one way a homeowner can do their part to be more beneficial to the environment.
Protecting the Plumbing
Each time pieces of food scraps find their way down the drain, they can potentially clog up the pipes. The clogs are usually treated by homeowners who pour those store bought chemical drain cleaners down the sink in an effort to free the clog. What happens is the harsh chemicals in those products actually deteriorate the strength of the pips and cause them to wear and break down much faster. The new improved garbage disposal can improve the value of your home because a potential home buyer will appreciate all the savings of not having to hire a plumber to repair damaged pipes that are weakening from drain cleaners used to unclog food particles.
The Cleaner Home
When you have our plumbing specialists install a new garbage disposal in your home, you will benefit from less trash attracting rodents and pests into the area. With less trash going in your garbage bags, less trash will be filling up your trash receptacles. That means less smelling food in the kitchen trash can and a huge reduction is decomposing foods sitting out in the trash container until the next trash pick-up. All this equates to a much more healthy and clean living environment for you and your family.
