Typically speaking, a garbage disposal will last you a fair amount of time before the blades will dull or the motor will stop functioning. Depending on the install date (modern garbage disposals are exponentially more enduring and rugged than was once the case), you can anticipate your garbage disposal lasting anywhere from 8 – 15 years.
When your garbage disposal does breathe its last breath, Miller’s would love to come in and save the day! We have been rescuing homeowners and business owners since 1943 and we are the #1 option for plumbing in Gloucester and Mathews, VA (as well as Hampton Roads)!
When we come into your home or business, we will assess whether it will be most time and cost-effective for us to simply fix the garbage disposal or to completely replace it.
To replace the system is typically a fairly quick job, and we have the experience to get in, put things back in order, and be out of your hair in no time flat!
If you’re having issues under your sink, here’s a quick video to explain to you what the different parts are and what they do:
Adding a New Garbage Disposal
Perhaps your home did not come equipped with a garbage disposal in the kitchen and you’d like to add one. This is a great way to add value to your home, and the overall project should be fairly quick and inexpensive.
Adding a garbage disposal can help with plumbing, drainage, or overall issues you may experience with your pipes due to its ability to keep things running smoothly and assisting with clog avoidance.
Of course, you can try the project yourself, but if it feels like you’re in over your head, just give us a call at (804) 758-4314 today, and we’ll schedule a time for one of our service professionals to come out and determine which garbage disposal system will be the best fit for you!
