Garbage Disposal Maintenance

To keep your garbage disposal running smoothly, please follow these easy tips:

  • Run ample supply of water before allowing food to enter disposal.
  • Turn on disposal.
  • Feed garbage slowly into disposal.
  • Once all food has cleared, keep disposal and water running for 5-10 seconds to ensure waste is cleared from drain.
  • Do NOT allow bones, corncobs, lettuce cores, onion skins, uncooked chicken skins, celery stalks or grease to go down the disposal.
  • To keep blades sharpened, periodically run ice cubes through the disposal.
  • To keep disposal smelling fresh, run orange or lemon peels through the disposal.
  • In the event of a clog, reset the disposal by pushing the red button located on the bottom of the garbage disposal.

Dishwasher Maintenance

  • Always run hot water in the sink before turning on the dishwasher. The first water going in the machine should be 120 degrees to thoroughly dissolve the detergent.
  • Use a minimum amount of soap. Too much causes etching on glassware and over-sudsing which causes leaking.
  • Rinse dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. Food waste can plug filters and impede water flow.

Toilet Maintenance

  • You are responsible for owning your own plunger.
  • If your toilet overflows, shut off the water supply. The shut-off valve is located directly behind the toilet. Please make sure you have a plunger.
  • Friendly reminder:  Only flush approved products (i.e. toilet paper).

Laundry Information

  • Larger loads with heavy items (jeans, sweatshirts, blankets, etc.) retain more water and take longer to dry and cost you more money. Wash smaller loads, which will not retain as much water and will dry faster.
  • Please contact our office if the coin mechanism jams or if any of the machines are broken.
  • Please be advised that 4 Lakes Properties is not responsible for any theft or damages that results from using the laundry facilities.
