Running a restaurant is fun, and an extremely satisfying business, but it has a dark underbelly. There’s one aspect of the business that owners shudder to even think about. The grease trap.
It’s that little contraption that keeps the grease used in your kitchen from entering the city’s sewage system or, if your restaurant has a septic system, the grease trap keeps grease from getting into your tank.
Unfortunately, it only works if the trap is kept clean, which is something you’ve got to do about every four to six weeks. Even worse, it’s a brutal, messy job, as anybody who has ever attempted to clean it out on their own can tell you.
At a minimum, you’ll need to dress up like you’re going into a radiation zone, with a gas mask, thick rubber gloves, and some overalls you don’t care anything about. If you try to clean the trap in your street clothes, be prepared to burn them when you’re done.
To say that it’s a dirty job would be an understatement, which is why our Gainesville VA grease tank cleaning service is so popular and in such demand. The vast majority of business owners are thrilled to be able to outsource the job.
We’ve been proudly serving the area for more than fifteen years, and in that time, there’s not much our guys haven’t seen, so even if it’s been a while since you’ve had a good Gainesville VA grease tank cleaning, we’ve got you covered.
Even better, we can put you on our schedule to ensure that your trap gets attention on a regular basis so there’s no chance that it will get filled to capacity or clogged, which could result in a system backup that could shut down your operation for days, and in some cases, even longer.
In addition to taking advantage of our Gainesville VA grease tank cleaning service on a regular basis, there are some simple things you can do to help ensure your grease trap is working just the way it should be.
For instance, you don’t want to hook a dishwasher, or any other source of hot water up to the system such that it flows through the trap, because this can dissolve the grease inside, allowing it to escape, either into the city’s sewage system or into your septic tank.
For similar reasons, you want to be sure you don’t make use of any commercial products that are designed to dissolve grease, as this defeats the purpose of the trap.
The bottom line is simply this: Keeping your grease trap clean is a dirty job, and it’s one we’re happy to do for you. Give our office a call today.
