Attention New Restaurateurs! Don’t Forget about Regular Grease Trap Cleaning!
So, you’ve just bought a restaurant – congrats! Your job is to prepare and serve delectable food, ensure that your establishment is clean, and abide by safety and health codes. You are not an expert in removing commercial waste – and why would you want to be? Let us professionals at Liberty Plumbing and Septic give you a hand with our grease trap cleaning service.
Grease traps (a.k.a. grease interceptors) are vital components of the drainage and sewer system in your restaurant. These devices trap most solids and greases before they enter the sewer, where they could cause a host of plumbing problems.
However, your grease trap needs regular cleaning in order to maintain its efficacy. If it is not properly cleaned out on a regular basis, it will become just as blocked with excess fats and oils as a plumbing system without a grease interceptor. Some restaurateurs try to do the job themselves, but over time, we’ve seen that most of our customers benefit from professional grease trap cleaning.
The frequency of cleaning depends on how much the trap is used and the amount of grease that builds up in it. If you use yours for heavy, everyday use, we suggest bi-weekly cleaning to ensure the device remains fully functional. For less use, we suggest grease trap cleaning every month. The best thing is to monitor it yourself and call us when it needs attention.
