Reasons why you need to clean and maintain your grease traps

By: Staff - 08.26.2018


The busiest season for South Florida is inevitably approaching. This means the snowbirds will be back, along with an influx of tourists from all parts of the world. For restaurant owners, you can expect a  larger than usual amount of customers to keep you and your staff busy and on your toes. Now picture this, you have a full restaurant of hungry people who are waiting to order and be served. Then one of your staff informs that your grease trap is clogged or overflowing.   You make the horrifying discovery of a grease trap that has accumulated thick fats, oils and grease (FOGs). The fumes that hit everyone sends them straight back through the door. A day’s profit is lost, the image of your business is tainted, you stand to lose customers, and you still have to fix your grease trap issue!

To avoid this unwanted scenario, grease trap maintenance should be high on your priority list now before the season arrives. The restaurant industry is slower than usual, so take full advantage of this off peak period to get it squeaky clean. Regular maintenance of a grease trap ensures it performs at its optimal potential and avoids a clogged system. It will also help to keep the environment safe as grease in the water supply is a health and environmental hazard. It is recommended that you service grease traps two to three times in the year.
