An essential part of any commercial kitchen, restaurant, hospital, school or food processing plant, fat and grease traps capture harmful greases, fats and oils and prevent them from entering the drainage system, where they could potentially cause a blockage.
However, without the correct maintenance, grease and fat traps can become blocked and cause the trap to fail, resulting in the contents flowing into the surrounding area or drainage system. What’s more, an accumulation of grease will also prove very hard to dispose of and can cause very unpleasant odours.
If you are looking to have a grease or fat trap unit cleaned, make sure to speak to our team of experts here at Elliott Environmental Drainage Ltd. We’ll be more than happy to discuss your requirements and arrange a time that suits you to have your system cleaned.
Why is Grease Trap & Fat Trap Cleaning & Maintenance So Important?
Grease and fat traps are specially designed to ensure that greases and fats are intercepted before they have a chance to enter the public water flow, meaning that there’s never the chance for fat to build up. Should the maintenance of your grease and fat traps be neglected and the contents were to leak and overflow, you could find yourself paying costly clean-up costs and fines from your local authorities. It is recommended that a grease and fat trap should be cleaned at least every three months, to ensure that it performs at an optimal rate.
Our team of specialists will clean the trap and ensure that it is restored to its former glory and working exactly as it should. We’ll also take the time to ensure that any areas for concern are fixed to avoid any future breakdowns, whilst also keeping you up-to-date on what we’re doing and the overall timescale. Not only will this help you to save money in the long run in repairs, but also saves you lost income from having to either close or reduce the capacity in your workplace to make space for larger repairs to be carried out.
