Fats, Oils and Greases are Gone with Shreks Septic Services!

 
Your grease trap is designed to intercept most grease and solids before they enter a disposal system. These traps are built to actually reduce the amount of fats, oils and greases fats that enter sewer systems. However, high-viscosity fats and cooking grease (such as lard) solidify when they cool and can combine with other solids to potentially block drain pipes.

Approximately 50% of all sewer overflows are caused by grease blockages and these can lead to a build-up of waste materials that may overflow into your kitchen and beyond. Clogs can also obstruct your plumbing, leading to improper or complete cessation of drainage.

Clogged grease traps are also a serious fire hazard. Because grease is highly flammable, fires will spread quickly and are very difficult to bring under control. This makes them extremely dangerous and likely to cause major property damage – or worse. Lastly, a dirty or clogged grease trap is a health code violation and as such, you are legally subject to serious fines if you do not maintain your grease traps correctly. If the situation warrants, you may even be ordered to close your business in order to fix the problem – leading to an additional loss of revenue.

Regularly cleaning and maintaining your grease trap is a very simple and cost-effective way to reduce and prevent the associated risk of fat build-up. The experts at Shreks Septic Services will inspect your grease trap to keep it clean and running smoothly. Remember, no job is too big or too small for us. Call today for your free quote!
