Keeping a commercial kitchen running smoothly goes far beyond having an efficient kitchen staff. If you have ever experienced a nonfunctional sink or backups in your kitchen, you know how it can stop a commercial kitchen in its tracks. In addition to being a major inconvenience to the functioning of your business, a clogged or malfunctioning grease trap can release substances into the waterways that violate a whole host of environmental regulations that can come back to you with repercussions in the form of fines and the like. To avoid these issues and to keep things running smoothly, regular grease trap cleaning is recommended and necessary.
Grease traps are designed to trap fat, oils, and grease (FOG) from entering the sewage system where it can cause clogs that cause problems for you and potentially for many others down the proverbial line. Since water and grease don’t mix, once the grease trap filters out the FOG that are put down the drain, they are trapped there and need to be removed with regular and thorough grease trap cleaning. Without regular and proper maintenance, a clogged grease trap will cause the sewer at your business to back up, allow sewer gasses to come up the drain, and potentially prevent the drain from functioning at all.
