Lockdowns lifting : Have your grease trap serviced today

The countdown is on to when lockdown rules are lifted. Schools may have already returned but for other industries, April, May and June will mark the end of up to a year of closed doors and minimal operations.

Thought about your grease trap?

One thing that won’t have been on your mind during that time is your grease traps – but it needs to be a major focus as you prepare to get back to business, because simply switching your premises back on could lead to serious problems.

Grease traps remove stagnated oil, grease and food from waste water running through your sewer and drainage system, to minimise bad smells and prevent the risk of flooding.

If your business has been closed to customers for a prolonged period of time, anything that was caught in your system before lockdown will have solidified. As soon as you switch your systems back on, you’re at risk of overflow which will mean your premises could flood and will be subjected to horrific smells.

What you need to know about grease traps:
  • Any premises serving food which doesn’t have a grease trap in place will be subject to future fines, due to changing regulations
  • If you’ve got a dosing unit installed rather than a grease trap, it’s incredibly easy to replace
  • Businesses across the UK benefit from a pre-planned maintenance (PPM) service each quarter, to prevent the risk of bad smells, foul water overflows and flooding in grease traps

Manufacturing facilities working with extensive amounts of oil, grease and lubricant have grease traps in place to prevent these substances from clogging up drainage systems.

Schools and Hospitality are getting ready to welcome pupils and guests back. Your grease traps remove stagnated oil, grease and food from waste water running through your drainage system, to minimise bad smells and prevent the risk of flooding have your traps checked.
