Grease traps can be the single biggest hassle for restaurants and commercial kitchens if not cleaned regularly. Grease trap maintenance performed on a routine schedule keeps drains flowing smoothly … preventing costly back-ups, and keeping your business up and running.
Grease traps are engineered to stop fats, oils or grease from entering the sewer lines. Left unchecked, these materials cool, then solidifies and sticks to the insides of the pipes, trapping food particles and other debris. Over time, this solid mass continues to grow until it obstructs the flow of waste water and causes sewage to back up.
Proper Grease trap maintenance is vital to ensure efficient functioning of your grease trap. Without proper maintenance any problems may occur such as blockages, back-ups, foul odors, and even fines due to the amount of fats, oils and grease deposited into city sewer lines.
