Clean Grease Trap Lines
Your grease trap is an integral part of your restaurant or food business – so don’t wait until it starts causing you problems. Grease traps must be cleaned on a regular basis. Not only that, but the drain lines should also be cleaned and flushed to keep them flowing free. Failing to clean your grease traps can result in serious problems. These problems start when grease builds up and stops the flow through the trap.
Such a situation is a major hassle – not to mention it’s messy. It can shut an otherwise smooth operating business down in the blink of an eye. So, make sure to schedule repair visits from a professional plumber to clean your grease trap lines and the rest of your grease trap.
Commercial Grease Traps
Most food establishments, including restaurants, are required by local laws to have a grease trap in their commercial kitchen. The goal of the grease trap is to capture grease as well as fat and oil. The popular acronym FOG (fat, oil, grease) is an easy way to remember what grease traps capture. Grease traps slow the draining of water so that these substances are allowed to congeal. The congealing makes them too large to pass through the grease trap into the rest of the drainage system. Grease traps prevent fat, oil, and grease from entering your restaurant’s plumbing. If they do, they can cause serious problems and expensive repairs. Even more important, they prevent these substances from entering the city water system. Not only will you be fined if more than the minimum amount of FOG enters the city water system from your food business, but the situation can quickly spiral out of control. An overflowing grease trap into the community sewer lines can cause blockages. This will result in water backing up into homes, businesses, and even streets connected to that sewer line. Avoid this problem by having your commercial grease traps cleaned and inspected on a regular basis.
