Garbage Disposal |Garbage Disposer | Food Waste Disposer

A garbage disposal is a kitchen appliance installed under the kitchen sink for the purpose of shredding food waste and particles into smaller pieces for smooth flow down the drain pipes. If you look under your kitchen sink, at the area between the the sink drain and the trap you can locate a garbage disposal if it is installed. A garbage disposal is also known as garbage disposer, food waste disposer, food waste disposal, waste disposal unit, garbarator or garburator, depending on geographical location and civilization.

Garbage Disposal Cleaning Tips | How to Clean & Freshen Your Garbage Disposal

Did you know that most smell emanating from your kitchen sink is from the garbage disposal? Garbage disposals used with optimal maintenance should self-clean and run at peek performance. However, not everyone knows the dos and don't of a garbage disposal, especially the little children at home. Moreover, it's not uncommon for food particles and debris to get trapped in the walls of your garbage disposal which over time result in mold and odor-causing bacteria. Now, you don't want any unpleasant nauseating smell in your kitchen so make sure to clean your garbage disposal at least every weekend using our garbage disposal cleaning tips. Click drain cleaning tutorial to learn how you can clean your garbage disposal and get rid of odor from your drain lines. The tutorial is for general drain cleaning and getting rid of drain odor so substitute "drain" with "garbage disposal" for the purpose of clarity. Example "Pour down the drain" in the tutorial should be replaced with "pour down the garbage disposal" or "pour down the kitchen sink drain" for proper understanding of the procedure

Garbage Disposal Maintenance | Stop Smell & Freshen Your Garbage Disposal | Tips

→ Pour in plenty of water when the garbage disposal is grinding and keep water pouring in for few seconds after grinding to make sure that every waste is flushed down the drainage system and avoid waste building up in the drain lines.
→ Keep your garbage disposal deodorized and smelling fresh by running citrus peels (orange,lemon, grapefruit or lime) in it every once in a while.

Garbage Disposal Care | The Rules

Attention
→ When following our garbage disposal cleaning tips via the previous link please be informed of the splash effect of the solution and hot water, verify that your garbage disposal is not running before you pour in hot water.
→ Never use chemical drain cleaners in your garbage disposal
→ Do Not use ice cubes on your garbage disposal as this can damage the grinders.
→ Avoid grinding such items as potato/banana peels, coffee ground or egg shells in your waste disposal
→ If you're leaving your house for vacation or travel up to 7 days, make sure to clean your garbage disposal before you leave.

Question: Dangers of Methane | Hydrogen Sulfide Gas | Sewer Gas

Question

Methane and Hydrogen Sulfide Gases

My daughter lives in Mexico. She has a very strong smell in all 3 of the bathrooms. The sink drains were installed upside-down and there is no seal on the toilets. This smell is making her whole family very sick. How dangerous is this, and how can she determine how bad it actually is? Limited resources in Mexico. I am concerned for their safety. Can you give me some more info. Her husband needs to be convinced on concerns for health. They have 5 little kids in the house.
Thank You

Answer

Before I even start to answer this question, I advice that your daughter call a certified plumber/professional sewer company or contact her local government over there for recommendations of certified companies to help them fix the sewer gas odor you described.

Before they try to open the sewer lid, the worker/plumber/sewer contractor should be aware or made to be aware that sewer manholes or any enclosed space within the sewer system contain invisible life threatening dangers such as Hydrogen sulfide gas, explosive gases and absence of oxygen.

Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is a highly poisonous and inflammable gas which occurs naturally in natural gas, volcanic gases, crude petroleum and other natural occurrences. It is also produced by the bacterial breakdown of waste materials usually found in waste treatment plants, sewer systems, swamps. Hydrogen sulfide gas has a foul odor of rotten eggs similar to what you described in your question "very strong smell in all 3 of the bathrooms". For the purpose of this question, I will base my answers on sewer gas (Hydrogen sulfide produced by the break down of waste materials in sewer systems/waste management systems) This is how Hydrogen sulfide is produced in sewer systems/waste management systems: When microorganisms decompose waste materials in the sewer system/waste management system, this is done in the absence of oxygen and the resulting gas is Hydrogen sulfide (sewer gas)...
