Do not use liquid drain cleaner in the kitchen sink or garbage disposal.
Do not let excess food, potato peels, coffee grounds, eggshells, etc. go down the garbage disposal. (They will stick to any sludge in the pipe and quickly create a clog.)
Is the garbage disposal making a humming sound? Run your hand along the bottom of the unit for a small button. Once you find the button, press it to reset the disposal.
Is the garbage disposal humming and not turning. Look for the disposal wrench attached to the disposal use it to turn the bottom of the disposal counter clockwise. Then press the reset button on the bottom of the disposal.
Check for blockage in the sink around the blades. Before putting your hands or utensil down the sink, make sure the unit is turned off. ** Never put these items down the disposal: chicken bones, onion peels, potato skins, grease, and corn husk! **
Grind lemon peels and ice to help prevent odors. You can also put in a couple of handfuls of baking soda and a half cup of vinegar. Let that set in the disposal hopper with the unit turned off. After it’s done foaming, rinse it down the drain with running water

"I cannot overstate my satisfaction with Melissa and her company American Beachside Brokers, in connection with my house sale. They made ever effort to keep me informed as to the process they used to price the home, to negotiate the ultimate sale price and to navigate the escrow process. They went out of their way to minimize my costs and maximize the money into my pocket, and generally treated me, not as a customer, but as a friend or family member. When they say, It's not about money; it's about relationships, they are not kidding. I hope Melissa and her team continue to serve the community with care and skill for many years to come, and I highly recommend them to anyone interested in selling, buying, renting or just discussing real estate."
