If not regularly maintained, clogged grease traps can be the single biggest hassle for restaurants. In fact, they can cause a complete shutdown. That would mean a loss in revenue while still having to cover the cost of an expensive drainage repair.
One of the most common waste products for any restaurant is grease. The combination of cooking oils, animal fats, and other sludge-like waste produced in significant quantities from food preparation can build up quickly. As these substances cool, they begin to harden and stick to the inside of the drain pipes. The accumulation can lead to major sanitary problems. This solid mass will eventually obstruct the flow of waste water, cause sewage to back up, or clog the septic system entirely.
The easiest way to prevent this from becoming a problem is with grease traps, but traps can only be effective when professionally and frequently maintained.
Grease traps capture grease before it gets into your drain system. But regular maintenance, by way of grease removal and pipe cleaning, are needed to keep grease traps working properly. Frequency of cleaning will depend on the size of the interceptor and the volume of grease it receives. By calculating the daily use of the grease trap, we can determine the frequency of grease trap cleaning needed. But it’s good to start with a weekly cleaning.
