Commercial kitchen drains will generally flow into a grease trap where grease and kitchen waste is trapped before entering sewer systems. This helps to slow down accumulations but doesn’t stop them completely. Sanitary sewers drain lines, such as toilets, bathroom sinks and showers are an entirely separate system – this waste is discharged directly into municipal sewer lines.
Over time grease, oil, dirt and organic waste accumulate in drain lines and sewer pipes, causing a number of issues such as poor sanitation, drain leakages and foul odors which can accumulate quickly and be very difficult to remove. Property damage becomes a risk due to flooding caused by a build-up of FOG. Some of the problems businesses are facing due to blockages in drain lines include high maintenance costs, downtime and inconvenient mechanical cleaning.
To create the right working environment for staff, avoid a potential loss in business and prevent emergency situations, it is important that the right solution is used not only to fix an already occurring problem, but also to act as a preventative measure. Ineffective drain treatments can be expensive, potentially harmful to health, damage reputation and have a negative impact on the environment.
