A grease trap for a commercial kitchen is an important way to protect the drainage and sewer system of a business. In fact, in many jurisdictions, the law requires that food service companies have grease traps installed in their kitchens to help stop the flow of grease, fats, and oils into the municipal sewer system, where their build-up can cause blockage and damage. But a grease trap is more than civic responsibility: it will help keep clean the drains and sewer lines for which your company is responsible, reducing the amount of service the plumbing requires and also helping you maintain an efficient and clean commercial kitchen space.

How Grease Traps Protect Commercial Plumbing
A commercial grease trap is installed on the drain line of a kitchen, where it acts similar to a septic tank except on a smaller scale. The trap consists of a series of chambers where liquid fats, oils, and grease (FOG) separate from the gray water and rise to the top of the chamber, while solid waste material from food drops to the bottom. The gray water is removed from the middle of the chambers and sent into the plumbing, free from the organic waste material that can coat pipes and create clogs, foul odors, and other plumbing complications.
Do You Need New Grease Trap Installation?
You may already have a grease trap for your kitchen if the law requires it. But if you are opening a new commercial kitchen, or if your current grease trap breaks, you cannot take care of the installation job for a new unit on your own: too much rides on these devices working properly. Call for commercial plumbing professionals who will correctly size the new trap to fit with the amount of wastewater that leaves your property and then fit it in place so there are no leaks or dangers that your company will fail to meet health codes.
Do You Need Grease Trap Cleaning or Grease Trap Pumping?
Sludge and grease collect inside a grease trap, and eventually the trap will need cleaning and pumping so it can operate properly. If you start encountering clogs in your drains or notice foul odors wafting from them, you should call for commercial specialists to pump out the grease trap, as well as check to see if it requires repairs. Schedule this job with us on a regular basis and you should rarely have to worry about the trap performing its job.
