Why Should I Have a Garbage Disposal?

Why Should I Have a Garbage Disposal?

Many people consider a garbage disposal a staple in their kitchen, but there are plenty of homes that come without one. Garbage disposals make it much easier to handle kitchen waste and protect the environment. Best of all, garbage disposals are relatively inexpensive and the installation is simple, taking about three hours, give or take.

Garbage disposals are an easy and useful addition to your kitchen that will make cooking and clean-up a breeze. If you’re still on the fence about buying one, here are a few more benefits of having a garbage disposal.

Save Money

With a garbage disposal, you’ll save time during cleanup and save money on plastic bags, wrap and foil. These home products quickly add up over time, and who couldn’t benefit from a few extra dollars in their pocket each month?

Avoid Pests and Odor

Leftovers and cooking scraps can rot in your trashcan and attract bugs or rodents. Garbage disposals allow you to break down and thoroughly remove waste from your home without any unpleasant smells or trash to throw away.

It’s Good for the Environment

When you throw food waste out in the regular trash, it winds up in a landfill. America generates over 230 million pounds of garbage every year, and less than a quarter of all trash can be recycled. The plastic bags and containers we use to throw away our waste wind up toxifying the environment.

A disposal will cut back on your waste output and allow you to contribute to a cleaner, greener Earth.

Preserve Your Plumbing

When you cook and wash dishes, food is bound to wind up in the sink at some point. Often times, people try to “flush” food down their pipes with a stream of water even though they don’t have a disposal installed. Even if food goes down, it can get stuck in the plumbing. Over time, most waste hardens against hot water, which leads to a major clog and potentially even a busted pipe.

Disposals ensure that your drains are always clear and prevent food waste from getting lodged in pipes and costing you an expensive repair.

As a real estate agent I need trades that can respond fast with detailed estimates. Parobek exceeded both of the expectations I had for detail response time and estimates. I will use them again and will refer them to future clients.

I called Parobek Plumbing and Air Conditioning late this morning because my clogged toilet wasn't unclogging with the methods that normally work. It was important because I only have one toilet and work from home. It's 3 o'clock and Daniel left about 20 minutes ago and I have my unclogged toilet working perfectly now.

The worker looked for a plumbing leak and was very thorough, patient, and kind. He did not stop until I found the problem and took the time to explain it to me in detail. I would hire him again. Very good.

Today's service was just a switch-out of a faucet. I'm very satisfied. Within the last week, I had a number of of jobs done, including installation of a reverse osmosis system. I have been exceedingly pleased. The service was prompt, professional and everyone was courteous and knowledgeable. Thanks.
