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.

Every time I called Wedgeworth, it was incredible service from the initial phone call to the end of the job. Can’t recommend enough!
Yvonne - Houston, TX 77056
I used Wedgeworth Plumbing to repair the water line for my exterior watering system that had burst during the freeze. TJ Pinkerton provided the service, and I was absolutely delighted with his work. He arrives precisely as scheduled, kept me informed about what he would be doing and showed me exactly what had been done. I am so pleased with the service TJ provided. He had also previously repaired two other issues in my home, and I was equally delighted with his service. I am thrilled to find Wedgeworth Plumbing.
Thankful for prompt and respectful service.

Satisfied Customer C - Houston, TX 77096
We were slotted for a 3-6 pm arrival time for Shawn to look at our leaking tub faucet (leak was previously repaired by another plumber two months prior). In the midst of a torrential downpour, flooding streets, and tornado warnings, Shawn arrived early after finishing up his earlier appointment. He greeted me with a smile and a hello and immediately set to work examining our plumbing. He explained the problem and presented multiple options, with clear prices and a 25-month warranty. There was no pressure in the decision making as he left it all up to me (and a quick call to my husband for confirmation of course). He was very personable and didn't mind my multitude of questions or those of my husband regarding the job. Shawn was very open and honest regarding questions I had with other plumbing concerns and gave me some great tips and suggestions. It turned out to be longer than expected to complete the job, and a secondary access hole needed to be cut into the wall, but Shawn diligently kept working as he had promised our problem would be fixed by the end of the day. When Shawn was finished, he made sure he cleaned up his area, demonstrated the ease of use of our new plumbing hardware, and asked if we had any questions. He ran out of time to work on some other issues and reached out to his office to schedule a return time in one week. We can't wait for Shawn to return! I was very pleased with the ease with which I was able to schedule the appointment, call the office with questions regarding timeframe availability and updates, and how easily they were able to reach out to Shawn while he was on the road, both in route to our home and back from acquiring the needed parts. I would highly recommend Shawn W. as your next plumber with Wedgeworth Plumbing. He is friendly, open, responsive, caring, punctual, very knowledgeable in the industry, takes pride in his work, and has a great sense of humor.

Had some pipes break during the last freeze. Wedgeworth plumbing came out and fixed them. Ask Shawn if they could repipe using pex. They gave me a bid and did a fantastic job. They are a 5 star company.

Clayton - Houston, TX 77062
TJ did a great job repairing our freeze break, and your home office coordinator did a great job keeping us in the loop as far as arrival time. You guys were super busy after the freeze and we really appreciate the extra effort to get us back up and running. Thanks for that! Only one suggestion - add a field to your invoice for the tech's name. I now have five WW invoices in my file and I've added the repair person's name to four of them, but missed out doing that on the fifth, invoice #11332477 from April 2021. I like to keep track of who we've worked with from your excellent firm!
