Grease trap cleaning is an essential part of your restaurant’s operation and should be done regularly to prevent grease, oil, and other food particles in your restaurant’s plumbing system. Here is how grease cleaning works.
The process starts with using a portable pumping unit to vacuum out the thick grease from the grease interceptor. After that, the grease trap cleaner uses a general drain machine to the cable through the inlet and outlet of the trap to break up all grease build-up that has gotten down into the pipe.
Next, the grease trap cleaner will use a special high-pressure water jet to clean the trap’s inside.
Finally, the grease trap cleaner removes any remaining grease by vacuuming it out of the trap.
After the cleaning has been completed, the grease trap cleaner refills the grease trap to the usual height of the outlet and reinstalls the lid. Generally, this entire process takes about an hour or two. It is important to note that only a professional grease trap cleaning company can perform this service for you.
How often you perform grease trap cleaning depends on many factors, such as the number of employees, the amount of food, and the type of food being served.
