After a long and cold Winter in Richmond, it’s easy to forget to maintain the essential devices that keep your restaurant working. Likely, your grease traps have been pulling their weight and working overtime for the past season, collecting all the fats, oils, and greases put out by your restaurant and keeping them from sinking down into the sewers. But now your traps deserve a well-earned cleaning to get them back to tip-top shape for future work. At A Cambie Grease Cleaning, trap cleaning is one of our specialities, and we can give your grease traps the cleaning it needs.
Grease traps are an essential part of restaurants. These devices help the environment by collecting the greases and oils made by food preparation. These oils float up to the surface of the wastewater collected in grease traps, and are prevented from entering the sewer systems. However, if left for too long, grease traps can overflow, causing multiple problems
- Plugged up drains
- Clogged pipes
- Foul odors
- Blockage and back-up in the sewers
- Expensive repairs
Clogging occurs due to the presence of certain oils, such as lard which, when cooled, solidifies and can mix with other waste solids to form blockages. It is important that these traps are maintained, as even if collected oils do not form clogs, build-up of such material can increase operation costs and disrupt your waste utilities.
At A Cambie Grease Cleaning, we will make sure that your traps are drained in addition to being as clean as possible. When we are finished with our trap cleaning, water will be able to run through your traps without any obstruction. A Cambie Grease Cleaning operates in Richmond and throughout the Lower Mainland.
