What Is a Grease Trap?
A grease trap is a helpful device that is installed in the drainage line between a commercial kitchen sink and the city sewer system. The purpose of a grease trap is to intercept fats, oils, and grease (FOG) before they enter the sewer system. FOG can build up on the walls of sewer pipes, causing blockages that can lead to sewage overflows.
Grease traps are usually made of concrete or stainless steel, and they come in a variety of sizes to accommodate different volumes of wastewater. Most grease traps need to be cleaned out on a regular basis, depending on the size of the trap and the amount of FOG present in the wastewater.
How Do Our Professionals Clean a Grease Trap?
Our professionals clean your grease trap by pumping out the contents and disposing of them properly. They then wash the inside of the trap with detergent to remove any residual grease. Finally, they rinse the trap with hot water to remove any soap residue. This process not only cleans the grease trap, but also helps to prevent build-up that can cause problems in the future.
Maintaining a clean grease trap is vital for any business that relies on a grease-based product. A grease trap is designed to catch and separate the solid and liquid waste that goes down the drain. This separation is important because it prevents the solid waste from clogging the drains and sewer lines. In addition, it helps to keep the water clean and free of pollutants.
Regular cleaning of the grease trap ensures that it continues to operate effectively. This, in turn, reduces the risk of plumbing problems and helps to protect the environment. Ultimately, maintaining a clean grease trap is good for business, the environment, and public health.
