How do I unclog my garbage disposal?

Unclogging a garbage disposal is the single most common maintenance issue homeowners face. So, if you have a garbage disposal in your home, then it’s important you know how to properly unclog it.

  1. Turn off the breaker that powers your garbage disposal along with shutting off your home’s water supply.
  2. Shine a flashlight into the clogged disposal to see if you can spot any objects that could be causing the clog.
  3. Carefully use a pair of long-handled tongs or pliers to retrieve whatever object or item is causing the clog.
  4. After removing any visible objects, turn the breaker back on.
  5. Test your garbage disposal to see if it is now working properly. If it’s not, give our garbage disposal pros a call today!
