Commercial Grease Trap Cleaning and Installation Services
Within commercial kitchens, grease traps are a crucial component due to their pivotal role in safeguarding the sewer system from fats, oil, and grease (FOG). The disposal of these substances down the drain has the potential to inflict harm upon both the sewer infrastructure and the natural environment. Additionally, it’s essential to note that municipal regulations strictly prohibit the drainage of oil and grease, violations of which could lead to financial penalties for your business.
The effectiveness of grease traps lies in their ability to intercept fats, oil, and grease, employing a series of baffles to separate and confine these elements within the trap. However, as these traps accumulate oil and grease, the risk of blockages becomes more pronounced. This accentuates the need for periodic cleaning of the grease traps to prevent these potential complications:
- Foul odors
- Kitchen flooding
- Contamination and health issues
- Expensive remediation services
- Business closures
At Mahone Environmental, we provide complete grease trap cleaning and maintenance services to keep your grease traps in working order:
- Ongoing maintenance: Our services include consistent upkeep of your grease traps, ensuring optimal functionality and preventing severe complications.
- Cleaning and repair: We provide routine cleaning for your grease traps to eliminate accumulated FOG, and we can perform necessary repairs when issues arise.
- Rodding and jetting: In instances where stubborn clogs persist, we employ effective techniques such as rodding or jetting to dislodge the obstructions within the traps.
- Inspection report: A full assessment report detailing the state of your traps will be provided for your reference.
- Historical records: Our meticulous documentation of the condition and maintenance undertaken on your grease traps allows us to promptly address concerns and foresee impending maintenance requirements.
- Urgent 24/7 cleanup: For any sudden complications affecting your grease traps, we provide round-the-clock availability for immediate emergency cleanup and rectification.
- Compliance with regulatory mandates: Allowing FOG down the drain is in direct violation of municipal and state mandates, inviting fines and potential business closures. By upholding cleanliness and sound condition of your grease traps, you ensure compliance with these regulations.
Commercial Used Cooking Oil Containers and Automated Systems
Efficient management and storage of cooking oil are vital before, during, and after use. Inadequate handling of cooking oil elevates the probability of spills, which in turn heightens the risk of burns and injuries. It’s imperative to establish a comprehensive protocol in commercial kitchens that guarantees the secure transition of used cooking oil from fryers to designated storage containers.
Mahoney Environmental specializes in conceptualizing and installing automated systems tailored for the handling and transfer of cooking oil. These automated systems eliminate the need for direct contact with the oil during the transfer process, ensuring safety and streamlining the procedure. Our range of automated cooking oil handling systems includes the following options:
- Direct Connection: Employing our Direct Connect Recycler System, we establish a direct connection between your fryers and storage container. This mechanism facilitates seamless UCO transfer through a simple switch or lever activation.
- Indoor System: Our indoor solution includes an interior storage container with piping that connects to your fryers. A portable filter machine can be used for oil filtration.
- Heated Outdoor Bulk Container: We provide heated outdoor bulk containers that are insulated and fortified with anti-theft locking mechanisms. These containers feature a level sensor and a built-in filter screen to facilitate UCO filtration.
Each of our automated cooking oil handling systems include the following:
- Connective piping
