Houston Garbage Disposal Tips

To help minimize the need for garbage disposal repair, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Cold water – Use only cold water when grinding food as hot water can melt fat which clogs in other areas of your draining when it cools.
  • Overfilling – Garbage disposals are the unsung heroes of kitchens, yet they are often overloaded which can lead to clogging and burned out motors.
  • Running water – Always run water before and after using your garbage disposal. As with any sort of pump designed for use with water, they wear when running dry.
  • Drain cleaners – Never use bleach or drain cleaners in your unit.
  • Hard items – Any hard food scraps or waste should be avoided such as bones, pits, and coffee grounds as well as any items made of rubber, metal, or glass.

While many people do attempt to perform garbage disposal repair themselves; it is highly recommended to seek the assistance from professionals like Wedgeworth Plumbing due to the risks from handling sharp blades and also working with electricity in an environment that includes water.

Have used them for many years for our home and our office. Always friendly and professional. I worked with Mr & Mrs Wedgeworth many years ago when they ran the business. Glad to see that their hard work has been passed down.read more

I was very impressed with my experience. Me. D and TJ came to replace my hot water heater and did an excellent job. They arrived when they said they would and were very professional. There were a few hiccups along the way, some of my tubing and other components were so old they fell apart and needed to be replaced. Despite the extra time needed he still honored the original quote price. I would definitely recommend working with this company.read more

I’m always grateful for a great customer experience and this one was one of the best I’ve had. First, they actually answered the phone. Second they made the appointment and called me to confirm when the plumber would be coming. Third, they showed up when they said they would. Fourth, the plumber was professional, knowledgeable, thorough and quick. And the price was fair. I was blown away! Great service Wedgeworth!!!!! Great job James!!!!read more

I could not be more impressed!!!




Review of Wedgeworth Plumbing

I am incredibly impressed by the very high level of customer service and professional expertise at Wedgeworth Plumbing! The office staff (Denise) was extraordinarily helpful and scheduled service within 24 hours of my call. The highly experienced and professional journeyman plumber they sent, Damondrick, went well above and beyond the level of care and service expected. A real gem of a guy! We've done a lot of renovation work over the years and I know great plumbers are hard to find. Based on my recent experience, I am truly relieved to know that there is a nearby plumber that I can trust. Thank you, Wedgeworth Plumbing!!!

Perfect Service




Review of Wedgeworth Plumbing

Had a large job following a burst pipe that destroyed pretty much both bathrooms. Got several estimates, of which Wedgeworth was very competitive and thorough (some were ridiculously high - always get multiple estimates!). This was thousands of dollars of work that had to be done in stages in cooperation with the overall contractor. Of all the moving parts of this rebuild, Wedgeworth was the most reliable and most accommodating. In short, they did a great job at a good price, and did it correctly and did it when it needed to be done. Now, at the end there were some issues with leaks after the final install of faucets, but Wedgeworth came out promptly three days in a row to take care of them, including a Saturday - so they covered their work without any trouble; even gave a follow up call a week later to make sure all was well. They are my go-to plumbers now, without question. Special shout out to Damondrick - great service, no run around, no up sell, no surprises, just took care of his end professionally and well.


Great Service
