Every business with a kitchen is required to have an interior or exterior grease interceptor. Interceptors are installed to trap fats, oil, grease and leftover food from entering the sewer system. When FOG enters the sanitary sewer system it causes blockages and sewer overflows. This is why local governing agency regulate grease trap maintenance closely. In addition to that, not performing grease traps cleaning will cause back-ups inside your pumping, inspection, and cleaning of grease traps which can result in closed or lost business. The local government has authority to fine companies if they do not clean or replace grease traps according to the rules.
Grease trap cleaning begins with scraping and pumping of grease and fats from the kitchen grease traps. When the sludge is removed and the grease interceptor is clean professional plumbers perform a grease trap system inspection to ensure that everything is working properly.
One of the common causes of a commercial septic system failure is the lack of pumping of commercial grease traps. Sewer Experts plumber recommends that the grease (one foot deep) floating on top of the four feet tank should be pumped out. The sludge and dirt at the bottom of the tank should be also removed. However, even if the grease deposit has not reached the 25% level many municipal health departments still require to complete pumping of the grease trap at least twice a year.
