Grease Trap Cleaning

Grease traps are a plumbing device that intercepts fats, oils, and grease before they can enter the sanitary sewer line. Due to new laws, grease traps and grease interceptors have become a strict requirement on many premises, particularly those in the food and restaurant sector.
Grease traps work by cooling hot and greasy water, making the different layers of waste separate. Since fats, oils, and grease are lighter than water, they float to the surface and become trapped while the water then continues draining to the sewer. Anything solid and heavy, such as food, will settle at the bottom of the tank.
Once you have the proper grease traps installed, you will have to maintain it regularly, which means cleaning it often. This can be essential to avoiding repairs and any disruptions to your business. If you are looking for grease trap cleaning in Cork, here at Cork Drain & Septic Tank Cleaning, we have the experience and professional team to get the job done properly and swiftly.

The Importance of Grease Trap Cleaning

Grease trap cleaning is extremely important so that we keep any oils, fats, and grease out of the sewer system. On top of that, it is important to maintain and clean your grease trap regularly so that no food waste damages the tank. When food waste is around for too long it can produce sulfuric acid which is a chemical that can cause damage to the tank if not regularly cleaned.

As well as the above, grease trap cleaning in Cork by Cork Drain & Septic Tank Cleaning will make sure that no rotten smells lingering are around.

The longer you wait for your grease trap cleaning, the more difficult it will become to clean as any waste can harden and cling to the tank.
