The food service industry is fast-paced and relies heavily on efficiency. A clogged grease trap can halt a restaurant in its tracks. In order to continue high productivity, regular grease trap cleaning is a must.
What is a grease trap?
Grease traps exist to keep fat, oil, and grease out of sewer lines. As water drains, it is routed to the grease trap, allowing the water to cool and the grease to separate and solidify. If these materials get into your pipes, they can quickly cause clogs and back-ups which can shut down the facility until the clog is removed. While grease traps alleviate a lot of these issues, eventually they can start to fill and cause serious issues, such as:
- Foul odors
- Customer complaints
- Back-ups and flooding
- Contamination and health issues
- Business closures
- Expensive remediation services
