We all know that you are going to Google it before you call us. But, you could always call us first and see what we suggest based on your situation.

Cleaning the Disposal
Every now and then, it’s a good idea to run some ice cubes down the disposal to clean the blades. Also, you could put some citrus fruit like orange or lime in with the cubes to freshen the scent of the drain.
In general, when you have plumbing issues, we always suggest you start with a quick call to your plumber to see if they have any suggestions that you can try at home before setting up a house call.
