My Garbage Disposal Smells. What Do I Do?

To skip stinky odors, you should grind up food refuse without delay with cold water and use your disposal long enough. Typically, 30 seconds will take care of it.

Stop dumping coffee grounds, eggshells, potato peels and banana peels into your disposal, because they cause drainage problems and unpleasant scents. While bleach feels like a smart idea for cleaning your garbage disposal, it hardens grease and other food bits in your pipes, resulting in obstructions.

Our Winnipeg plumbing Experts advise doing one of these green mixtures each week to keep your disposal smelling pleasant:

  • Hot water and baking soda
  • Hot water and dish soap
  • Hot water and vinegar

You can also buy garbage disposal pods or grind up citrus peels to get rid of odors.

If your garbage disposal smells like sewage, you might be experiencing a leak. Contact the professionals at 204-800-0613 for plumbing service in Winnipeg.
