Kitchen and Bathroom Faucets
The faucets in your kitchen and bathroom may experience buildups and breakdowns over time. Mineral deposits and scaling can create blockages in your systems, leading to difficult clogs that might not be fixable. Screeching and squeaking sounds, clanking noises, and low water pressure are all telltale signs that it might be time to replace your faucets. Whatever issue you are experiencing – from small leaks to full clogging – our friendly technicians can fix anything you are facing in a timely manner.
With regular use, the working parts of toilets can break down over time, making them work less efficiently. Some of the major signs your toilets aren’t working right include low bowl water, partial flushing, and suction or whistling noises. Other problems that could secretly increase your water bill also range from toilets always running, to toilet bowls taking an extended time to fill up. If you face any of these issues, call Heritage for an inspection and estimate. Our plumbers use all the state of the art equipment to make sure you’re getting the most out of every flush.
Although the name suggests they work like a trash can, the garbage disposal in your kitchen sink isn’t designed to handle all of your waste. While they can grind up food waste to help them go down your drain, those same particles can get clogged in your system over time. Pile on hot oil or grease and it’s a recipe for a disaster.
There are several indications that your garbage disposal needs repair or replacement. If it just hums but doesn’t spin when you turn it on, it could be jammed with food or other debris. Should it stop working altogether even after you press the reset button, it could mean your system is completely malfunctioned.
You should never attempt to fix a jammed or malfunctioning unit on your own. Putting your hand in the system could lead to serious injuries if the blades come on unexpectedly. Instead, call the expert plumbers of Heritage Home Service to help you determine what is wrong, and what repairs or replacements are necessary to get your garbage disposal back to work.
To prolong the life of your garbage disposal, avoid putting these items down the sink:
- Large bone or meat fragments
- Hot oil, grease, or animal fats
- Fruit and vegetable peels
- Stringy foods and objects, like celery
- Wire or plastic ties for plastic bags
- Coffee grinds
- Egg shells
- Metal objects, such as staples, coins, or bottle caps
