The Importance of Properly Working Grease Traps

eugene-grease-trap-cleaningThe basic job of a grease trap is to keep fat, solids and oils from reaching the drain in the kitchen and sewage system. These fats, solids and oils might cause the drain to block leading to a back flow in the pipes and causing a serious pollution problem.

Drain blockages caused from washing down oil in the kitchen sink can be severe during the winter months, because the oil can form into a solid. When something like this happens, it’s time to call a professional full-service grease trap cleaning Eugene company like Baxter Plumbing & Rooter, Inc. to repair the problem.

Grease, fat and oil are all major components of waste water in a commercial kitchen. If they aren’t intercepted, they will quickly go into the sewage system underground. This is a huge problem for restaurants because having large amounts of greasy waste water will quickly harden and block up the drains. Having a properly working grease trap can catch the greasy stuff avoiding the unnecessary blockage of pipes and expense of opening them and cleaning them out. If your grease and oil are clogging up your grease trap, our professional drain cleaning service can resolve your problem.

Commercial establishments like shops and restaurants are required to install grease traps to make sure their large amounts of oils, solids and fats that are in their waste water won’t go into the sewer system. These traps must be installed on kitchen waste and sanitary waste water fixtures. When it comes to commercial establishments it is important to have the right size trap prescribed by law. Establishments should also check the minimum time period suggested for their particular grease trap so that it is cleaned out on the recommended time schedule. Our professional drain and grease trap cleaning Eugene services can keep your commercial grease traps clean, preventing unnecessary problems down the road.

The grease trap found in your business is in the form of a box and made of plastic or metal. It’s located between the main sewage system and the kitchen sink. Grease traps need to be cleaned out at regular intervals before they begin to smell obnoxious.
