One of the most disruptive issues you can have in your restaurant is a clogged grease trap. This can cause a backup in your plumbing that results in embarrassing foul odors throughout your restaurant and the inevitable need to shut down your eatery until the problem is resolved. Not only could this ruin your restaurant’s reputation, but the loss in profits from a shutdown can be devastating. But here’s something else you should know about the crisis of a clogged commercial grease trap – it is completely preventable!
What Your Grease Trap Does
A grease trap is included in commercial kitchens as an effective and necessary way to prevent fats, oils or grease (FOG) from entering the sewer lines or septic system. Without a grease trap, these FOGs eventually cool down, solidify and cling to the inside of the pipes. Food particles would get trapped as they try to drain and the entire pipe or drain line becomes clogged. A grease trap prevents FOG from entering into the plumbing lines altogether.
What Your Grease Trap Needs
Eventually, the FOG layer in your grease trap will build up and can seep into your pipes, which renders it useless and puts your restaurant at risk for that embarrassing backup. A Commercial Grease Trap Cleaning is an essential plumbing service you can’t afford to skip or put off. If maintained on a regular basis, you can protect your grease trap unit from damage and avoid having to close your restaurant due to plumbing problems.
