There’s probably a lot you love about running a restaurant, but there’s one thing that probably fills you with absolute dread: Having to clean out your grease trap periodically.
If you’ve never had the dubious honor of doing it yourself, we recommend against it. It’s a job that even Mike Rowe, of ‘Dirty Jobs’ fame would shrink away from. It’s easily one of the most wretched ways you can spend an afternoon.
Even if you’re fully decked out in a mask, long gloves, boots, and clothes you don’t care a thing in the world for, by the time you’re done, you’ll feel as though you’ll probably feel as though you need to take a year-long shower, and even then, you might not feel clean.
Most people after having done it once, are happy to outsource it to someone else, which explains why our Prince William County VA grease tank cleaning service is always in such high demand.
We’re the area’s leading septic service company, so as you might expect, our guys don’t shy away from dirty jobs. It would be our pleasure to spare you the aggravation of having to deal with it.
Even better, once we’ve got your grease trap cleaned out this time, if you like, we’ll make sure it stays that way, performing our Prince William County VA grease tank cleaning service for you every four to six weeks to minimize the risk that your system will encounter problems that could lead to a backflow, which could shut you down for days.
In addition to making regular use of our Prince William County VA grease tank cleaning service though, there are a few simple things you can do to help your system function better and more efficiently. The biggest of these is to be sure you don’t hook a dishwasher or some other source of hot water up such that the water flows through the trap.
If you do, the hot water will dissolve the grease, allowing it to escape either into the city sewer system or into your own septic tank.
The other big thing you can do is to avoid using any sort of product designed to dissolve grease. While that sounds good in theory, and you might think it’s a viable alternative to having your trap cleaned on a regular basis, the fact that it allows all that built up grease to escape will wind up causing you more problems than it solves.
If you avoid those two things, and allow us to come in and keep the trap clean for you at regular intervals, you’ll go a long way toward ensuring your business sees smooth sailing. It’s just one less thing for you to worry about. Give our office a call today. We’ll be happy to help!
