Why Grease Trap Service is Important
Approximately 50 percent of all sewer overflows are caused by grease blockages. Restaurants and commercial kitchens produce a lot of greases, this grease buildup can clog drain lines and cause blockages and backups, and fires if not cleaned properly.
Grease traps are plumbing devices designed to keep fats, oils, and grease from contaminating wastewater before it enters the sewer system. Some are small enough to be installed under a commercial sink, while others require in-ground housing.
It holds these materials in a large steel basin, which allows sediment to settle and the fats, oils, and grease to form an oily layer at the top. Just as with inflammable waste traps, grease traps must be pumped regularly to remove the buildup of waste products.
Cleaning a grease trap is done by pumping and scraping the grease from the traps and system until all the grease is removed. No matter the frequency of your cleaning, it is important to keep close tabs on your grease trap.
The best way to effectively control grease is to keep as much out of the plumbing system. This is as beneficial to your bank account as it is to the environment.
