If you think an object or food particle is jammed, shine a flashlight into the garbage disposal and attempt to locate the object. If you believe you found the obstruction, verify the switch to the garbage disposal is in the “off” position and then use a set of long pliers to remove the debris. Avoid sticking your hand into the garbage disposal as it is unsafe and unsanitary.
If you cannot find an obstruction or the problem involves a persistent clog or water leaking from the unit, it’s time to schedule an appointment with a reputable and reliable plumbing company, like Rocket Plumbing. With our steadfast commitment to high quality workmanship and prompt service, it’s evident why Rocket Plumbing Los Angeles</a> has been in business since 2012.
