Keep Your Business Clean and Sanitary with Regular Grease Trap Cleaning

Regular grease trap cleaning is essential for businesses that have grease traps on site. Grease traps are used to keep fats, oils, organic waste, and grease out of the sewer pipes, preventing clogs and backups. Without regular cleaning, the fats, oils, and grease can build up and cause blockages, leading to costly repairs.

This is why it's necessary to keep your grease traps clean and in working order, especially if you are in the foodservice industry.
