The Benefits of Pumping Your Grease Traps Regularly

Why You Should Have a Professional Clean Your Grease Trap on a Regular Basis

If you manage or own a restaurant, commercial kitchen, or any other type of facility that deals with food production, then you must be familiar with grease traps. Most waste water (even residential) contains oil and grease particles that are usually handled by municipal waste water treatment systems or private septic tanks. However, the waste water from commercial kitchens and food production facilities contains too much grease and oil for septic tanks or municipal water management systems to handle. So, in order to prevent severe drain problems, you need to install a grease trap.

Grease traps are special devices that are mounted on the main sewer line and accumulate all the grease and oil from the water that passes through them. We won’t get into details about how these machines trap grease. All you need to know is that they need to be cleaned regularly. Regular pumping and cleaning help keep the device functioning properly. Failing to ensure a proper cleaning schedule can lead to severe problems, including clogged drains, damaged septic tanks, and grease trap damage.

Cleaning your grease removal device regularly also helps to avoid unpleasant smells in your facility. Furthermore, there are strict laws and regulations that punish owners who don’t clean their grease traps regularly. The bottom line is that if you want to avoid fines, expensive plumbing repairs, work interruptions, and unpleasant smells, then you need to hire a contractor who specializes in pumping and cleaning grease traps.

There are many companies that offer septic systems services. But, before you hire one, you must make sure that they are licensed and insured. It is very important that your contractor also uses high-quality equipment for cleaning your grease traps.
