5 Benefits of grease traps & floor drains

Grease traps and floor drains are valuable elements in any restaurant, car wash, fuel station or really any environment where there is water or oil runoff. The grease trap and floor drain work hand in hand to create a safer and cleaner working environment. Here are a few benefits of grease traps and floor drains:


How are grease traps cleaned and maintained?

Grease traps should always be cleaned and maintained regularly. Proper cleaning and maintenance of traps prevent back-ups and ensure that drains continue to flow freely. If a grease trap goes neglected for too long, then build-up will be much more difficult to eventually remove. Additionally, a neglected trap can attract flies, cockroaches, and rodents, ultimately warding off staff and patrons. Cleaning of overflowing and backed up traps can be an expensive, multi-day ordeal and should be avoided.


Where are floor drains required?

Floor drains are required to remove standing water and prevent fat, grease and oil (FOG) pollution from damaging land and sewers surrounding your business. After passing through a floor drain, contaminated water must run through a grease trap in commercial kitchens and an oil separator at fuel stations and car washes before flowing into sewer systems.
