This article is going to show some of the most important reasons that a homeowner might want to have a garbage disposal installed into their kitchen. While this little wonder often goes overlooked, it is perhaps one of the most important kitchen appliances to own! Anybody that is on the market for a home should consider a home for sale that already has one in it. This way the homeowner does not have to pay to have one installed after the fact!
The most important reason to own a garbage disposal is for mere sanitation. Homeowners without a garbage disposal will typically throw their left over scraps away with the rest of the garbage. Not only does this tend to draw critters (such as cockroaches and furrier varieties,) it also creates a horrible smell. This smell is generated from decomposing food. The decomposition process also results in a large amount of bacteria released into the kitchen. Hiding the garbage bags outside is practically begging for a visit from neighborhood dogs that will only tear them apart! A garbage disposal can help a homeowner to run a much more sanitary kitchen.
By using a garbage disposal, a homeowner is also being environmentally friendly and thereby running a greener kitchen than somebody that does not use one. Think about it; if you don’t toss left over scraps down the drain, they are going to wind up in the trash. On the surface having a week’s worth of food scraps might not seem like a lot of additional trash for the garbage man to come and get. Consider your entire block, neighborhood, or even city however! That is A LOT of additional garbage in each bag. That extra garbage is just feeling land fills.
Now go ahead and be a little selfish as you imagine the convenience factor. How much easier it to clean out the fridge with one of these disposals? It couldn’t be ANY easier. All a homeowner has to do is grab the leftover container and scoop the remainder down into the drain. You just simply toss everything that you can into the sink, following device guidelines of course. There are certain things (ie bones, very large unprocessed items) that cannot be tossed down a garbage disposal. Be sure to check your owner’s manual for additional reference before heavy use of such a device!
