Why you need to regularly service your grease traps

Are you looking to keep your restaurant in top shape but aren’t sure if you’re missing something? Not to worry! In this blog, we’ll discuss grease trap maintenance, and why it is crucial that you clean it on a regular basis.


If you are a restaurant owner, you’ll need to clear out your grease trap often. Your restaurant’s pipes can become clogged with accumulated grease. Study has shown that grease trap waste can have a dual-fuel function. Ensure you don’t ignore this part of your plumbing system.


  • Uphold a healthy work environment


To keep your work setting healthy, clear out your grease trap. This helps prevent blockage and foul odors in the trap. A worker could get sick if they are exposed to bacteria. This could cause a lawsuit and put you out of business. Don’t allow it to reach this point.


  • Avoid plumbing issues


Blockages occur if a grease trap isn’t cleaned out regularly. This results in a dirty environment if the sewage water backs up. Customers will be dissuaded to return if they witness such an incident. Employees will be reluctant to stay at a job that threatens their health. This can affect your reputation in the industry. Hire a professional to get the job done.


  • Schedule your maintenance/cleaning to avoid fines


Grease traps in restaurants are supposed to be cleaned as regularly as possible, depending on usage as well.


  • Is your grease trap installed properly


Ensure that your grease trap has been correctly installed. If you notice that your grease trap doesn’t have grease accumulation in it, something is wrong. We recommend that you call a professional to inspect it.
