The kitchen is arguably the heart of the home. It’s a place of gathering both food and family, cooking, laughing, and creating. That is why it’s so unpleasant when you begin to experience issues in the kitchen, especially when it comes to plumbing.

Garbage Disposal Repair & Installation
Garbage disposals can be your best friend when treated properly but can quickly become your worst enemy when overwhelmed or injured. The purpose of garbage disposals is to assist the draining process by grinding up small pieces of food that could otherwise have clogged your sink.
When used correctly, they can effectively prevent clogs by making sure food pieces that are too big aren’t getting stuck in the drain. However, most homeowners often abuse their garbage disposals by overwhelming the system with huge chunks of food and other debris. Things like bones and fibrous foods can damage your garbage disposals and lead to the need for repairs.
At Beltz Home Service Co. we offer garbage disposal repair and replacement solutions. If you’re dealing with a small issue like a blocked system, we can help. If, however, your garbage disposal has electrical failures, a replacement may be needed.
What Causes Leaky Faucets?
Another unwanted malfunction that is common within kitchens is dealing with leakage. Your kitchen fixtures, particularly your faucet and sink, have seals that help prevent water from flowing out into your kitchen. Over time, these seals deteriorate, leading to leaks. While a puddle of water is a clear sign something is wrong, there are other signs you should look out for, including:
- Higher water bills
- Low water pressure in certain fixtures
- Rust buildup around valves
- Mold or milder smells
- Stains on or in cabinets
While in some instances the seal can be fixed, in other cases it’s best to replace your fixture and upgrade the seals. Newer fixtures are made with plastic seals that have a tendency to be more durable, making them a top choice among plumbers.
