3 Tips for Cleaning a Commercial Garbage Disposal

Need help cleaning your commercial garbage disposal? Over time, a commercial garbage disposal can acquire foul smells from the many foods moving through its blades. But, don’t fret, there are ways to remedy the stinky situation. Read on to learn the top Quick Servant’s three tips for cleaning a commercial garbage disposal, and get used to having a sweet-smelling kitchen:

How to Clean Your Commercial Garbage Disposal

Tip #1: Freshen Smells With Citrus Peels

If you’re already peeling citrus, throw a few peels in your garbage disposal and run water as you grind the disposal. You’ll clean the blades in the process, and your disposal will emit a lovely citrus smell.

Tip #2: Lava It Up

Dump about 1/2 cup of baking soda in your garbage disposal. Trace that with about a cup of vinegar. Allow the mixture to foam and rise—much like a volcano for 5 to 10 minutes, and then flush it with hot water. You’ll clean and deodorize at the same time.

Tip #3: Ice, Ice, Baby

Throw a handful of ice cubes into your garbage disposal. Flip on the water, and let your disposal grind. You’ll dislodge foul-smelling food particles and give your disposal a fresh start. A commercial garbage disposal often is much more powerful than standard residential ones, but it’s always a good idea to grind ice in small amounts. You never want to overwhelm a unit.
