Sink & Garbage Disposal Cleaning


Inspection and cleaning twice per year. Includes sink, sink drains, p-traps, aerators, and garbage disposal.

Did You Know

Calcium build-up around your faucets is a sign of hard water. While it doesn’t pose health risks, it can shorten your hot water heater’s lifespan from 8-10 years to as few as 4-6. HomeKeep’s twice-yearly cleaning of your disposal and faucets can help us detect these problems and protect the longevity of your home’s appliances and systems.

More Details

The tasks we perform and why they are important for your home:

  • Clean sink drains, faucet aerators, and build-up around faucets
  • Cleaning drains prevents clogging which can cause more serious plumbing issues later. Removing build-up around faucets prevents damage to the seals and resulting leaks.
  • Clean garbage disposal
  • Keeping the garbage disposal clean keeps the sink drain clear, prevents foul odors, and helps prevent the disposal from jamming or breaking.

Common Questions

The typical hourly rate for a plumber to service your garbage disposal is $65-100 an hour. Most garbage disposals run around $250 to fix, including labor. HomeKeep disposal and faucet cleanings help prevent repairs and are included with all other services in our maintenance bundles that start at just $399 per year.

To clean your garbage disposal, first, turn off power to the disposal, then inspect the inside for foreign objects or obstructions. Lastly, add ice and run water while the disposal is on to help sharpen the blades.

To remove the calcium build-up on your faucets you’ll need a mixture of water and CLR or another type of calcium, lime, and rust remover. First, soak the faucet head in the solution for 5-10 minutes to break up the calcium deposits. Then, use a soft bristle brush or sponge to scrub the remaining calcium from the faucet.
