It’s critical to have the grease trap at your business facility cleaned often. The purpose of the trap is to keep grease, fats and oils from entering the primary septic system or the city or county sewer system for most restaurants.
Maintaining a clean grease trap is an easy way to prevent a very bad situation for your business and save you a lot of money on septic system repairs.
Lakeland Septic Company of Florida has been helping our customers clean and maintain their grease traps for more than 15 years.
Grease Traps Help to Prevent Clogging & Backups
Septic systems aren’t designed to handle large amounts of fats, oils and grease. When a commercial grease trap isn’t cleaned regularly, this gunk can cause sewage backups and other serious problems.
The purpose of a septic system is to receive drainage from a facility’s sinks, tubs and toilets and then process the waste. This is done by separating the liquids and solids in the tank and then sending the liquids on to the drain field, where they’re eventually moved into adjacent soil.
Greasy compounds block the flow. Very heavy grease buildups can cause a septic system to basically stop working. When this happens, parts and components of the system may suffer damage, and effluent can start backing up into the facility or leaking into the ground.
