If you have a foul smell coming from your garbage disposal unit, then you most likely have food stuck in there. The food can be in the garbage disposal, in the drain, or deep down in the pipes. If there is no food detected anywhere but the smell still lingers, then it’s possible that it’s sewage in the pipes that is causing the smell. The first thing to do is have the garbage disposal checked for food, and if necessary, have the disposal unit dismantled.
Checking the drains should be the next step, and it may be necessary to get the drains cleaned to completely get rid of the smell. Garbage disposal units that have slight smells even when there is no clog or food present can receive lime and vinegar to make it smell better as well as approved chemicals that can be put into the unit for a fresher smell.
