Grease Traps: Treat Them Right!
By Terence J. O’Reilly, Jr.
Let’s face it, a congested grease trap is trouble. Its odors can be nasty. It makes sinks drain slower. If the line gets clogged, it can lead to a huge plumbing expense.
Like most things, out of sight, out of mind. So leave it to our technicians to schedule regular service calls, because the grease trap is usually located where you don’t see it every day – under the sink, or outside.
The regularity of your service calls depends on the volume of your business. Once every three months is average, but your G.T.O. Grease Trap Services technician will recommend a plan tailored to your business’s individual needs.
If you go by Murphy’s Law – an under serviced grease trap is likely to back up on a busy Saturday night when your restaurant is packed, and you need emergency service just to wash the dishes.
Regular grease trap cleaning allows you to be in compliance with local state, township and sewer authority environmental regulations. We all want to be environmentally responsible.
Service on a regular basis will help the grease trap run efficiently and cleanly. Our G.T.O. technicians will pump and clean the trap, remove and clean all baffles (which prevent grease from moving further downstream), sanitize, apply odor control deodorizer, flow test before and after cleaning, and reseal and cap the trap. Afterward, we dispose the grease waste in an environmentally safe way.
We say, ‘If you treat it right, it will treat you right.’
