Grease Traps: Protect Your Restaurant’s Kitchen Pipes
Maintaining cleanliness as well as functionality is essential to running a successful restaurant kitchen. Not only do all areas of a restaurant need to be regularly and thoroughly sanitized, but the kitchen and all its industrial-sized equipment must be immaculate in order to stay up to code and prevent food-borne illnesses. One restaurant kitchen cleaning task that often gets overlooked, however, is that of the grease in the grease traps.
Out of Sight, Out of Mind
Your kitchen’s grease trap is out of sight, so it’s easy for forget about. Grease traps are a requirement in any type of eatery, as they prevent fats, oils, and grease (aka FOG) from entering the drainage system. An average, single-stage grease trap will retain around 50%–90% of the FOG that enters the trap.
The problem with ignoring a dirty grease trap is not just the damage it can do to your pipes. Clogged and dirty grease traps attract pests such as flies, cockroaches, and even rodents. Therefore, regular cleaning is absolutely essential. In addition to acting as a food source for pests and vermin, grease traps that are full of fats create an unpleasant odor that can very well make its way into the rest of the restaurant, turning away your patrons.
