Commercial Grease Trap Cleaning and Installation Services
In professional kitchens, reliance on grease traps is essential to protect the sewer system from the detrimental impacts of fats, oils, and grease (FOG). These elements, if present in wastewater, have the potential to wreak havoc on sewer infrastructure and impose environmental threats. Additionally, adhering to municipal regulations is imperative, as the disposal of oil and grease down drains is prohibited, and failing to comply could result in penalties for your establishment.
To keep FOG out of the drainage system, grease traps utilize a sequence of baffles that segregate and confine these substances within the trap. However, as these traps gather accumulations of oil and grease, the likelihood of obstructions heightens, necessitating periodic cleaning for peak operational efficiency.
Failure to have your grease traps regularly cleaned and maintained can cause the following:
- Flooding in the kitchen
- Bad odors
- Expensive remediation services
- Contamination and health issues
- Business closures
At Mahoney Environmental, we provide the following grease trap cleaning and maintenance services:
- Ongoing maintenance: We offer regular maintenance visits designed to eliminate the buildup of oil and grease within the traps, in addition to addressing necessary repairs, thus guaranteeing their peak performance.
- Cleaning and repair: Before cleaning your grease traps, we meticulously examine them for potential repair needs, swiftly and effectively providing restoration services when required.
- Rodding and high-pressure jetting: When grappling with stubborn blockages, we can employ rodding and high-pressure jetting methods, successfully eradicating stubborn obstructions from your grease traps.
- In-depth inspection records: With each visit, we diligently create comprehensive inspection records that provide valuable insights into the condition of your grease traps.
- Historical documentation: Our inspection reports maintain an exhaustive historical record of your grease traps, helping us promptly identify and address potential issues, as well as anticipate upcoming maintenance.
- Emergency cleaning available 24/7: Acknowledging the urgency of unforeseen scenarios, our team is available around the clock, ensuring swift response and cleansing procedures to uphold the efficiency of your grease traps.
- Adherence to local and state mandates: For foodservice establishments, strict adherence to municipal and state codes, which forbid the disposal of fats, oil, and grease down drains, is paramount. Non-compliance could lead to substantial fines or even the temporary closure of your business. By prioritizing your compliance with these regulations, we assure your avoidance of any such penalties.
