Grease Trap Cleaning
It is important to prevent grease, fat, and oils from finding its way into your plumbing system. Animal fats and vegetable oils can congeal and form blockages in your pipes, preventing your plumbing system from functioning properly. While most homeowners know that you should never pour grease down the drain, it can be difficult to prevent any and all grease from entering your plumbing system. For restaurants and commercial kitchens, this can be an even more pressing concern. Installing a grease trap helps to filter out fats, oils, and grease from wastewater, protecting your plumbing and mitigating future problems. From time to time, the grease contained within a grease trap will need to be removed to ensure the receptacle continues to function properly. At A to Z Septic, we can help you clean out your grease trap on a regular basis to alleviate any worries you may have.
