Food left sitting in the sink or even in the trash can, may attract fruit flies, ants, roaches and even cats and dogs. Outside trash may also attract skunks, bear and other animals foraging for food. By simply installing a garbage disposal and placing food waste down the disposal, the kitchen is cleaner and unwanted animals are not encouraged to come near the house. Another advantage of installing a garbage disposal is the elimination of odors. Food left sitting in the trash will rot, smell bad and become a bacterial breeding area. The installation and use of a garbage disposal will not only leave the kitchen looking and smelling better, but eliminate germs as well. Garbage disposals are not only good for the kitchen, but the environment as well. Keeping food waste out the landfills is beneficial to us all.
An extra benefit to owning a garbage disposal will become obvious when you are ready to place your home up for sale. Many prospective buyers require a garbage disposal when searching for a home. Garbage disposals provide convenience and cleanliness and are considered an upgraded feature when selling your home.
