Big B's your 1st choice for Garbage disposal installation
We’re your professional Garbage Disposal Installation Company. Like most households in America, your garbage disposal is one of the most used appliances. Unfortunately, without much warning, our appliances will eventually break down if not replaced ahead of time. Most of us haven’t done our research on garbage disposals. When we start our search, the cost will range from $100 up to $500 dollars. How do we know which garbage disposal is right for our home? We're assuming that you're replacing the old garbage disposal with the new one and this is not new construction.
The motor size is the most important.
- For condo or apartment use with no more than 2 in the household, a ⅓ horsepower is fine
- 3 to 5 persons, ½ to ¾ horsepower
- 6 or more persons with heavy usage, 1 horsepower
This is our professional advice, but not necessarily a rule. What it boils down to is how much you’ll use your garbage disposal. Some families will entertain more than others. Whatever the case, we can guide you through the selection, making sure you have the right garbage disposal for your family. We want to be your first choice for your Garbage Disposal Installation.

Other Things To Keep In Mind When Buying Your Garbage Disposal
When looking for a garbage disposal, select one that has stainless steel blades. Stainless steel blades are harder, sharper and will last longer. It’s also been said that stainless steel blades will grind the food more finely. If you have a dishwasher, make sure your garbage disposal has a dishwasher attachment. Doing this will allow any food from the dishwasher to flow into the garbage disposal where it can be ground down and rinsed away. You should also consider other features like noise level. The quieter the disposal, the better. Make sure your garbage disposal has a reset button on the unit. Another tip is to make sure your garbage disposal has a corrosion protection shield. The shield will give your garbage disposal a longer life expectancy. It's critical that your disposal is installed correctly.

Take Good Care of Your Garbage Disposal
Like any other appliance, if you provide some minor maintenance it can extend the lifetime of the product. Here are some ideas:
Periodically drop ice cubes down the disposal, doing this can help keep the blades sharpened.
Grinding citrus peels can freshen up your drain.
Only use cold water when running your disposal, this will help prevent clogs.
Don’t put potato peels, celery, artichokes, egg shells, coffee, corn husks, banana peels or grease down your disposal.
Composting is a great idea and plant friendly. Collect your food scraps in a canister with a lid. Your food scraps can provide excellent compost.
