Getting To The Point – Kitchens
There are a lot of food scraps that are being produced by every household and commercial buildings, specifically the restaurants and fast food chains, every day, and became a problem in the whole community which can lead to the development of public health, environmental and sanitation problems. A certain architect named John W. Hammes has created and designed a very useable and beneficial device that can lessen the occurrence of such problems in the community and that certain device is what we called as garbage disposal. Another term used for garbage disposal includes garburator, garbage disposes, garbage disposal unit and waste disposal unit, and it is a device that is installed specifically between the sink’s drain and trap, and is commonly powered with the use of the electrical system. The basic function and uses of garbage disposal device is to shred any food particles or food waste so that it can easily pass through the plumbing system, and in the end can help in preventing any undesirable odor or smell that comes from the left-over foods on the whole kitchen area and garbage cans. There are two basic types of garbage disposal, namely the batch feed which is typically used by placing the waste inside the disposal before the device is being started, and the continuous feed which is the most commonly used type of garbage disposal and is typically used by placing the food waste in the disposal after being started.
Owners and the management of fast food chains and restaurants are advised to purchase and install such device in their commercial kitchen, for it provides great benefits which can promote orderliness and cleanliness of the surrounding areas of their kitchen. Garbage disposals may need to be repaired over time, especially when it tends to leak, food waste hums or backs up and foul odor may occur on the surrounding area, which may be caused by faulty seals and wearing out of the components of such devices such as its bearings and motor. It may cause a lot of money in repairing or fixing such device, luckily, is that there are some useful tips found in the internet in handling the said device to maintain its good condition and stability, and that includes avoidance of placing any trash or hard items such as utensils, glass, screw, nails, rubber bands, cigarette butts, hair, grease, bottle caps and children’s toys; by running cold water while the disposal system is on to avoid overheating; by cleaning the garbage disposal in a regular manner; includes keeping anything too hard, such as hard bones and hard shells of shrimps, shellfish and crabs, out of the disposal which can cause the shredder to become dull and become less efficient; and lastly, is by not placing any starchy or fibrous items in the disposal or in a minimal increments or cut in small pieces, such as celery, banana peels, potato peelings, artichokes, coffee grounds or filters, hard seeds and fruit pits, onion skins and egg shells, and instead placed in composting sites.
