WHY A-1 SEPTIC TANK SERVICE?
ONLY THE BEST RESULTS
Running a commercial kitchen comes with a number of concerns that go well beyond a private home kitchen. As a restaurant owner, you are obligated to follow a number of regulations to ensure the safety of your employees, guests, and the general public. For example, your restaurant may be required to have a grease trap interceptor that prevents fat, oil, and grease from entering the San Francisco water system. Having a grease trap is one thing—maintaining it is quite another. A-1 Septic Tank Service, Inc. can provide prompt grease trap pumping services and help make sure your kitchen runs smoothly.
SAFETY IS OUR PRIORITY
Grease trap pumping should only be left to the professionals due to safety reasons. Consider having a grease trap cleaning professional come at least once every 90 days.
Why maintain the grease trap?
Grease traps can handle many different kinds of waste, but you have to think about what you’re putting down your drains when you consider your plumbing system as a whole. If you don’t maintain your grease trap, all the grease and cooking oils will build up and create a foul odor. This can be perturbing for employees and customers, and it increases your risk for a grease fire. A neglected grease trap may also leak grease into the municipal water system. This is bad for the community and can result in a fine for your establishment.
How does the process work?
Grease trap pumping helps your sewer system out and doesn’t require too much time. Your plumber or non-hazardous waste removal professional will take measurements to see how much fat, oil, and grease is in your trap before pumping out all of these waste products. The grease trap technician will then dispose of the fats, oils, and greases in a responsible way. At the end of the process, your technician will give your grease trap a thorough cleaning to make sure it’s working at its full capacity.
