Personalized advice on the best garbage disposal unit
When considering garbage disposal replacement, size is very important. For one or two people, a ½ HP model is adequate, while three to six people need a ¾ HP motor. Larger groups of up to ten people should opt for a 1 HP model.
Hawk Services works closely with its customers, making sure that utilitarian appliances (like garbage disposals, water softeners and sump pumps) are sized to specific family needs.

Chop large items into smaller pieces and add them little by little, to avoid overloading the motor.
Run the garbage disposal unit regularly, to prevent rust and greasy build-ups, and add a little dish soap after washing up, for quick-cleaning freshness.
