    Insinkerator Repair and Replacement

    It can sometimes be a problem managing food waste. There are a few schools of thought related to this problem - either to bin it with your normal weekly rubbish or separate it for the food waste collection service, both of which are services offered by your local council. Food waste as another option can be composted if you're a keen gardener/grower.

    On the other hand, you may want to manage food waste in a different way? Installing an Insinkerator, commonly known as a waste disposal unit is another way to manage food waste effectively. It is a handy kitchen appliance capable of reducing food waste into fine particles, virtually liquifying them which helps prevent clogging of the pipes. It then ends up in the waste water treatment plant. If you have a separate septic tank adding waste to it may increase the times it needs to be emptied, so something to consider?

    If you already have one fitted but isn’t efficient/powerful enough or in need of repair or replacement then contact serviceteam Ltd. Our services extend across the length and breadth of London and surrounding areas. Our qualified tradespeople are nearby 24/7.

    If you require a quotation contact us via email with pictures of the unit and a description of the fault. Alternatively, call us directly and speak with one of our dedicated team members who will be able to advise. We can then arrange a suitable time and day to visit to undertake the works.

    What's included in this service?

    If you have a faulty, jammed or noisy waste disposal unit or simply want a new waste disposal unit installed, why not request a free quote from Serviceteam.

    Email us a photo of your existing waste disposal unit or of the pipework beneath your sink and one of our advisors will provide you with a quote to replace your existing unit with a high quality modern disposal unit.

    Should you install an Insinkerator

    You might be thinking why should you install an Insinkerator when you can easily dispose of food waste? Well, reducing the amount of waste going to landfill helps the environment enormously. Once buried in a landfill site it naturally breaks down (over time) producing methane, a nasty greenhouse gas. But if it’s recycled, food waste can be turned into a plant fertiliser and even a source of renewable energy (depending on how it’s treated). A few points below to consider:

  • Food waste can be disposed of conveniently.
  • Avoids food waste accumulating in containers.
  • Deals with the garbage in an eco-friendly manner.
  • Decomposes the food to provide beneficial fertilizer for the plants.
  • Use less water while dealing with food waste.
  • The disposed waste is directly sent to waste treatment plants.
  • Simple to install and cheap to run.
  • Easily repaired.

    FAQs

    Q: Do Insinkerator waste disposal requires daily maintenance?
    A: You’ll be happy to know that unlike many home appliances that are constantly in use, you won’t have to put your Insinkerator through any regular maintenance or servicing. Just keep spotless and clean smelling!

    Q: What can I put in a disposal unit?
    A: You will be advised by the manufacturer what can and can’t be safely disposed of in the insinkerator. We recommend you adhere to these guidelines to prevent any mechanical issues. Every appliance has its limitations, so be mindful of the type of waste you dispose of. If unsure always refer to the manufacturers operating manual.

    Q: Clean It Regularly?
    A: Food waste can accumulate inside the disposal unit over time, which can result in unpleasant odours. Just follow these simple steps to keep your unit sparkling clean:

  • Isolate the unit from the mains supply.
  • Remove the sink baffle and clean thoroughly.
  • Replace the baffle.
  • Reconnect the power supply.
  • Turn on the Insinkerator and turn on the cold water to flush the unit.
  • To freshen the unit add a handful of ice cubes mixed with a quantity of lemon wedges.
  • Q: How noisy are Waste disposal units?
    A: Waste disposal units come with different sizes of motors.

    The size of the unit and its HP rating is often linked to the family size. As a rule of thumb, one would assume that the bigger the family the more waste is produced? A small family could manage with a ⅓ or ½ HP motor. A medium sized family of 6 a ½ to ¾ HP motor. A larger family would probably benefit from an HP rating of ¾ to 1 HP. The higher the HP rating will determine the noise produced. Thankfully, the unit is not in continuous use throughout the day and only used in short bursts?
    Serviceteam Ltd can install any Insinkerator depending on the family needs just call and we will advise..

    The serviceteam process

    Choose your preferred method? If not now but certainly in the future you’re likely to have something in your home or premises that needs repairing or replacing? When you do we have various ways we can approach your job;
    • Serviceteam completes so many jobs during a year that we can often provide you with a fixed price for the works without attending
    • Other jobs require am enquiry to be raised, so we can compile a quotation. Any photos provided will help us to assess requirements.
    • If your project is large or complex, we will assign one of our qualified engineers to visit and prepare a detailed quotation.
    • Alternatively, you can select serviceteam’s Pay by Time option, certainly if you have an emergency or a “to do” list made up of one or several minor jobs. When on site our engineer will appraise the works required and give an indication of how long the works are expected to take. If we are unable to complete the works within the first visit due to the need for extra time or materials, then we will provide you with a fixed price quotation for the extended works for consideration and authorisation before proceeding.
    Enquiries can be logged through our website, email, WhatsApp or by calling 020 3538 7067.

    What happens next?
    When booking online the details of your job, including your preferred time slot/s will be sent to our scheduling department where within one working hour, scheduling will assign the appropriately qualified engineer to your job. You will also receive an alert via email confirming your appointment. You can view details of your job and see a photo of the engineer who will be visiting. If we are unable to accommodate your job at the time requested, due to high demands on our resources, we will be in touch with alternative dates.

    Good to know about your deal?
    If our tradesperson assesses your job and believes that the scope of the works need adjusting in terms of time/materials and price, they will seek you approval before the work begins.

    How are tradespeople verified?
    All our tradespeople have the relevant trade specific qualifications, have been rigorously screened and come under serviceteam’s insurance policies.

    How do we charge?
    At the point of booking your service we will log your preferred payment details card number etc. Payment will not be taken from your credit/debit card until the works have been completed, usually within 24 hours. Please note credit card transactions are limited to £150.00. maximum. A copy of your paid invoice and a job-sheet will be emailed to you when payment has been approved. Our dedicated Operations Team, based in London, are on call to discuss any current or future jobs as well as managing your project through to completion. If you prefer to pay with a different card to the one used when booking your appointment, please ask our trades person whilst on site to call the office and update your details.

    How do refunds work?
    You are eligible for a refund if you cancel within 14 days of booking or the job has not been started and is not within the cancellation time frame.

    What if I want to cancel the appointment?
    We understand that priorities and plans change, and you may need to rearrange/cancel your booking. Should this be the case please let us know as soon as possible so we can make the necessary alterations to our work schedules. If we don’t receive enough notice of your cancellation or appointment rescheduling within the terms outlined below, then there is a possibility you will be charged a cancellation fee.

    Cancellation windows
    (1.) A charge of £10.00 (ten pounds) will be payable if the service is cancelled within 24 hours. (2.) If the scheduled appointment is cancelled within 12 hours (or less) a 50% charge of the booking fee will be applied (3.) If the appointment is cancelled when engineer arrives at the property (on the doorstep - photos and times will be provided) and within our texted 3-hour time slot the full booking fee will become payable. None of the above charges are profit items and only contribute to the cost of late cancellation/lost business.

    Do I need to provide parking?
    As you know parking in and around London can be problematic and extremely costly (depending on the area) if a parking space can be reserved for our engineer it would be appreciated and help increase efficiency of the service provided (no feeding meters etc or mobile app updating). The quote we have provided does not include the cost of parking and/or congestion charge which will be added to the final invoice (if applicable). Please inform your personal account manager if any special parking instructions like parking permit/free parking can be provided. For properties on the rim of the congestion zone and it is not possible for our engineer to attend without entering/clipping the charge zone, we may need to add the charge to the final bill ? Please check with your personal account manager in advance of your appointment if you’re not sure?
