Learn More about the Uses of Garbage Disposals for Commercial Buildings There are a lot of food scraps that are being produced by every household and commercial buildings, specifically the restaurants and fast food chains, every day, and became a problem in the whole community which can lead to the development of public health, environmental and sanitation problems. In the most fortunate event, is that a certain architect named John W. Hammes, has invented a device which can help in the occurrence of such problems in the community, and that beneficial device is what we called as garbage disposal. The useful and beneficial device called as garbage disposal is also called by other people as garbage disposal unit, waste disposal unit, garburator and garbage disposer, and it is definitely installed under the sink that is placed in the kitchen area and it is commonly powered with the electricity. The main function of garbage disposal is to shred any food particles or food waste so that it can pass through plumbing, thus can help in keeping away any undesirable smell from the left-over foods out of the garbage cans and the kitchen area. Basically speaking, there are two different types of garbage disposal, such as the continuous feed which is the most common type of garbage disposal that are being purchased and practiced by the consumers of such product and it can be used by feeding in the food waste and particles after being started, and the second one is the batch feed, and such type of product is being used when the food waste and food particles are being placed inside the disposal before the being started. Garbage disposal can be used to promote cleanliness and orderliness on the surrounding areas of every kitchens, especially the commercial kitchens which can be of great use during the visit of health inspectors, which is why the owners of fast food chains and restaurants are advised to purchase and install such great device on their kitchen. Fixation and repair of such device may be needed over time, specifically when foul odor may spread all over the kitchen area, when it tends to leak and the food waste backs up or hums on the other sink, and most of these undesirable occurrences may be caused by the wearing out of the essential components of the said devices such as faulty seals, bearing and its motor. Repairing the device is very expensive, good thing is that there are some ways which can help in maintaining the device in good condition and for a long duration of time, and that includes keeping anything too hard, such as hard bones and hard shells of shrimps, shellfish and crabs, out of the disposal which can cause the shredder to become dull and become less efficient; not placing any starchy or fibrous items in the disposal or in a minimal increments or cut in small pieces, such as celery, banana peels, potato peelings, artichokes, coffee grounds or filters, hard seeds and fruit pits, onion skins and egg shells, and instead placed in composting sites; avoidance of placing any trash or hard items such as utensils, glass, screw, nails, rubber bands, cigarette butts, hair, grease, bottle caps and children’s toys; by running cold water while the disposal system is on to avoid overheating; and by cleaning the garbage disposal in a regular manner.
