Restaurant Grease Trap Cleaning and Installation
To maintain compliance with municipal regulations and protect the environment, it is essential for all commercial kitchens to have fully operational grease traps that effectively prevent fats, oil, and grease (FOG) from being washed down the drain. Allowing these substances to enter the plumbing and sewage system can result in severe damage and negative environmental impacts. Moreover, disregarding these regulations may lead to potential fines imposed by the city for violating ordinances.
Restaurant grease traps use a system of baffles to separate fats, oil, and grease from the water, allowing these substances to rise and be trapped within the system. Regular cleaning of the grease traps is of utmost importance to prevent the accumulation of excessive grease and oil, which can lead to trap blockages and a range of associated issues. Failure to maintain and clean the traps can result in the following consequences if they become full or clogged:
- Kitchen flooding
- Bad odors
- Business closure
- Expensive remediation services
- Contamination and health issues
