If you work in the restaurant industry, something you should be thinking about more than you currently are is your grease tank. It’s one of the fastest ways to slow down your business if you’re not careful.

Proper grease trap maintenance will help keep your business running efficiently. If not properly maintained, however, it can be one of your biggest hassles and lead to sewage issues which could be expensive for your business.

What is a grease trap?

A grease trap is designed to stop fats, oils, or grease (FOG) from entering your sewer lines. If unattended these fats, oils, or grease solidify and stick to the inside of pipes. This will often lead to pieces of food or debris attaching to the pipes casing sewage back up.

That’s where the clog comes into your business. It takes time to unclog those pipes and that time will cost you money not only in repairs but also in the potential shutting down of your kitchen.

What can you do to help?

The first thing if you haven’t already is purchasing grease traps on the outgoing drains of sinks inside the restaurant. Secondly, you should look at the consistent maintenance of these grease traps.

Most cities require maintenance depending on the volume of the restaurant traffic. If your restaurant has significant traffic, you should look at having your grease tank cleaned once a month. It’s an essential piece of your businesses success.
