In order to help save the environment and keep toxic substances out of sewer systems, all restaurants have a grease trap. Grease traps are under restaurants and work to filter out grease and oil from water that gets disposed inside a restaurant. Grease traps, like anything else, require proper maintenance for a number of reasons.
1. MANY PLACES HAVE LAWS THAT REQUIRE GREASE TRAP MAINTENANCE
These days, many cities and states have laws that regulate grease trap service. Keeping up on regular grease trap service will prevent you from getting fined by the government. According to the Wisconsin State Journal, many places like Madison, WI have come up with ways to make sewage costs cheaper for restaurants that regularly maintain their grease traps.
2. REGULAR GREASE TRAP SERVICE WILL PREVENT SEWAGE BACK-UPS
If you don’t clean out your grease traps on a regular basis, grease can build up inside the trap. Sometimes, grease can build up to the point where the drain gets clogged and water will not flow through it. Recently, according to the Palm Beach Post, Lake Worth, Florida had a grease trap overflow and flood a large area of the city’s streets.
3. PUMPING OUT GREASE TRAPS REGULARLY WILL MAKE THEM LAST LONGER
If grease accumulates inside a grease trap, it will eventually clog but it also wears down the metal inside the trap. If a grease trap is not pumped out periodically, the grease trap will wear out and need replacement much more quickly.
Hiring a company to pump out your grease trap will save your business a bunch of money in the long run. Go to the Kline Services website to get more information about grease trap services. To get estimates on grease trap pumping services contact us to speak with one of our experts.
