Commercial Grease Trap Cleaning and Installation Services
In every commercial kitchen, the presence of functional grease traps is important to prevent the discharge of fats, oils, and grease (FOG) down the drain. When these substances find their way into the sewer system, they pose a significant threat to the natural environment and can inflict damage on the sewage infrastructure. Furthermore, the improper disposal of FOG down the drain may result in financial penalties, as it can lead to violations of municipal codes.
Grease traps operate by employing a system of baffles, effectively separating FOG from water and retaining these substances within the trap. Over time, as FOG accumulates, the risk of encountering clogs and related plumbing issues significantly increases. Thus, it becomes necessary for commercial kitchens to adhere to a regular cleaning regimen for grease traps. This routine maintenance will help reduce the likelihood of clogs and ensure the smooth functioning of the kitchen’s plumbing system.
Keep in mind neglecting regular cleaning of your grease traps can lead to a host of troublesome issues, such as:
- Flooding in the kitchen
- Unpleasant smell
- Costly restoration services
- Contamination and potential health hazards
- Shutdown of businesses
