As a restaurant owner, it’s important to have your grease trap serviced and cleaned on a regular basis. You shouldn’t wait until it’s full as this can damage your drain lines. A clean grease trap will prevent the solidified fats, oils and grease from sticking inside your drain pipes and working as it should.
Without a proper cleaning, trapped residue will obstruct the flow of wastewater and cause sewage backup. Grease can also leak into your restaurant’s septic system which can lead to environmental pollution.
