Grease Trap Drain Maintenance

Grease Trap Drain Maintenance

Grease traps are a necessary evil for the owners of a café, restaurant, butcher, bakery or the many other businesses requiring a grease trap.  The Grease needs to be removed at set intervals to prevent the drainage system from building up with grease and fats and reducing the diametre of the Trade Waste drainage lines to zero. Fat in the drainage pipe goes hard as the cold water turns oil into a solid like the fat left over on a pan that you washed the next day.

This can cause a number of issues:

  1. Costly lengthy drain cleaning and clearing work during the peak operating hours of your trading day
  2. Potential loss of trade due to the shop flooding with grease water or the car park grease trap overflowing causing customers discomfort due to the smell of the grease trap water and fats
  3. Tenants complaining to centre Management over and over again, creating a strained relationships within the Shopping Centre
