Having ongoing maintenance in place for your grease trap minimizes potentially expensive headaches. While it may not seem like a big deal to put off your grease trap maintenance, postponing for too long can cause major problems for your business.
Untended fats, oils, grease, and other solid food waste can build up quickly. If left too long, the mix of FOG and food particles can harden into a solid mass that smells horrible, is impossible to clean, and extremely difficult to remove.
On top of that, leaving your grease trap untended creates safety hazards. It increases the likelihood of FOG being discharged into your sewer system, which can incur significant fines and penalties from local municipalities.
