Restaurant Grease Trap Cleaning and Maintenance

All commercial kitchens need to have properly maintained grease traps. They are crucial in preventing fats, oils, and grease (FOG) from entering the sewage system. If FOG is allowed to enter down the drain, it can cause significant damage to the sewage and plumbing systems and pollute the natural environment. It’s crucial to note that flushing FOG down the drain can result in your business being fined for breaking local codes and regulations. Therefore, it’s vital to ensure that your grease traps are regularly cleaned and maintained.

Grease traps use a system of baffles that effectively separates the FOG from the water. Grease traps use a system of baffles that effectively separates the FOG from the water. To prevent clogs and issues within the trap, it is crucial to remove FOG build-up. Failure to do so could lead to the following problems:
