Why Grease Traps Are Necessary
On the off chance you don’t have a grease trap installed in your commercial kitchen, let’s go over why they’re so important. Kitchens, especially commercial ones, produce a large amount of waste byproducts. Among these waste materials is FOG (Fats, Oils, and Grease) which is often washed down the drain in liquid form after it’s done being used.
The problem with doing that is that FOG doesn’t stay liquid. As it cools, it congeals into a sticky, viscous substance that sticks to the walls of the drain and sewer pipes. This can become so severe it can even clog the main sewer line closest to the commercial property. Grease traps are often mandated for commercial kitchens by cities who want to protect the sewer system.
Professional Grease Trap Installation and Replacement Services
Whether you’re installing a brand new grease trap, or you have an old one that just can’t handle its job anymore, we can take care of your needs. We install and replace grease traps to meet any commercial kitchen’s situation. If you’re concerned about having plumbing issues without a grease trap, or getting a fine from the city, don’t worry. Just give us a call, and we’ll make sure that you have a new grease trap in place as soon as possible.
If Your Grease Trap Needs Repairs or Maintenance, We’ll Handle It
Grease traps do a pretty good job of capturing the FOG and other detritus that flows through them on the way to the sewer system. However, they are not bottomless pits. Eventually, the grease trap will fill up, and that will be just as much of a problem as if the system were not there in the first place. You should make sure that you call for professional grease trap cleaning services every few months or so to keep the system clean. We’ll drain the trap, and even repair it if it’s malfunctioning in some way. That way, you don’t have to worry about a big part of your plumbing system failing on you when you need it most.
