One of the main causes of emergencies is the failure to employ preventative maintenance. Our technicians see this all the time, especially in restaurants. Food establishments think they are ok by simply doing the bare minimum to meet legal guidelines. Unfortunately, this isn’t always enough to avoid unexpected downtime.
One of the main ways to keep unwanted solids from entering your grease trap and other plumbing is to use a strainer. Simply place one over all the drains in your sinks and floors, and you’ll be amazed at what they catch. Additionally, it helps to scrape food and trash from plates into the garbage instead of washing them away in the sink or dishwasher.
Preventative Maintenance is Key
Grease traps need to be pumped and cleaned on a regular basis, but that’s not all. A professional needs to be inspecting and servicing your wastewater facilities on a regular basis. This is the only way to ensure a disaster will not keep your business from disruption during peak hours. Some businesses have indoor traps, and some have outdoor grease interceptors. Make sure you’re using a service provider like Kline’s who understands the differences and has the proper equipment to properly service them.
