4 Reasons for Gig Harbor Restaurants to Get Proper Grease Trap Cleaning & Maintenance, Gig Harbor Peninsula, Washington

Running a restaurant is full of responsibilities, and some of them are far from glamorous. One such task is cleaning and maintaining the grease trap on a regular basis. The good news is that restaurant owners and managers don’t have to take care of this duty on their own. Hemley’s Septic Tank Cleaning, Washington’s leading expert on all things relating to septic tanks, performs thorough grease trap cleanings for Gig Harbor restaurants. 

Grease traps perform a very important function in restaurants by keeping fats, grease, and oil from the public sewer system. Professional maintenance is necessary in order to keep grease traps functioning correctly and to resolve other issues, including:

  • Save Septic Tanks & Plumbing From Damage: If grease traps are allowed to build up with fats, oil, and grease, it can create significant problems for septic plumbing and drain systems. Drains may become clogged and won’t be able to flow freely, resulting in a messy backup in the kitchen.Grease Trap Cleaning
  • Get Rid Of Dreadful Smells: Don't let employees and patrons suffer from catching strong whiffs of rotting food while in a restaurant. Without a proper grease trap cleaning, food waste will remain left in the trap to deteriorate and start to emit foul odors.
  • Comply With Local Laws: Restaurants can be heavily fined for not complying with health codes regarding grease traps. Local laws may differ from state to state on the exact guidelines but all require grease traps to be cleaned and maintained several times throughout the year.
  • Reduce Carbon Footprint: Grease trap cleanings are also vital for the environment. Without them, blockages can occur in pipes that will lead to manholes overflowing and cause the city’s water system to become contaminated.

It’s critical not to allow grease traps to go ignored. Call Hemley’s Septic Tank Cleaning at (800) 699-7854 to schedule a grease trap cleaning in Gig Harbor, or visit them online for a full list of services.
