Grease Trap Maintenance: What Business Owners Should Know

An overflowing grease trap is a serious maintenance concern for food service business owners. If your restaurant has one on the premises, taking good care of it is crucial for the comfort of your workers and your customers. In order to meet local codes and regulations, Connecticut business owners are obligated to service any grease traps within their building, and this process is one that should require a professional plumbing service. Below is a brief summary of what you should know about grease trap maintenance.

Prevention of Blocked Drains

Having blocked and clogged drains within your food service facility can make it problematic to use your plumbing systems resourcefully, but an overflowing grease trap can cause far greater complications. First, having excessive grease build up in your grease trap will produce unpleasant odors, which can make it difficult for your staff to work comfortably in the kitchen. Because no one wants to smell foul odors while enjoying their food, this could also drive customers out of your establishment. Not to mention, a buildup of grease can eventually lead to fire, which will endanger your workers, customers, and yourself. It is extremely important to always keep on top of grease trap maintenance in order to avoid these issues.

The Grease Trap Maintenance Rules

Having a professional drain cleaning service assist you with grease trap pumping is not something you should question. There are rules, codes, and regulations that mandate business owners to clean their grease traps to circumvent possible problems that come with an unclean trap. As your local Connecticut drain cleaning and plumbing company, we can assist your restaurant business in the maintenance of the grease trap at your business location to ensure you are complying with code and to prevent waste from flowing into the municipal water system. And, if you do not follow the rules, you could end up paying fines, which in the long run, could have a serious financial bearing on the overall health of your restaurant business.

The Drain Cleaning Process

Our professional drain cleaning experts will begin by gauging how much grease, oil and fat, is presently in your grease trap. Then they will be better informed as to what type of schedule you should be on. Once that is complete, they will pump the waste. The technician will then dispose of it properly, before meticulously cleaning out the grease trap.
