Do you own a restaurant in Centreville VA? Commercial grease trap cleaning isn’t much fun to think about, but it is a necessity. Ideally, you should have your grease trap cleaned out every four to six weeks, lest you risk a system backup which could shut your business down for a few days (or longer).
Don’t let that happen to you! We’re Centreville VA’s commercial grease trap cleaning experts, and we stand ready to help.
We’re a locally owned and operated company, not a national franchise, which means that in addition to getting our decades of experience, you also get the kind of personalized, hometown service you expect from a local business.
There’s a reason why there’s such a strong demand for Centreville VA commercial grease trap cleaning services. It’s a dirty, disgusting job. If you try to go it alone, at a minimum, you’ll need a face mask, rubber gloves, and some coveralls you don’t care about. If you try to do it in your everyday clothes, plan on throwing them away when you’re finished.
Yes, it really is that bad! That’s why most people are happy to outsource grease trap cleanouts, and we totally understand. It’s not for everyone, but given how long we’ve been in business, there’s not much our team hasn’t seen before, so we’ve got you covered.
If you’ve ever wondered why your restaurant needs a grease trap in the first place, the answer is this: Whether your business has its own septic system, or is tied to your town’s sewage treatment system, grease is extremely bad news. If it gets into your tank or the municipal system, it can cause no end of headaches.
The grease trap was designed to prevent that from happening, but it only works as long as it’s connected properly. For instance, you don’t want to connect a dishwasher to it (or any other source of hot water) because the hot water will dissolve the grease and allow it to flow from the trap into the system, which utterly defeats its purpose.
For this reason, you also want to steer clear of commercial products designed to dissolve the grease in your trap. While this may seem like an attractive alternative to a traditional cleanout, it’s essentially the same thing as running hot water through the system. All you’re doing is flooding either your septic tank or the municipal system with grease, which will lead to no end of trouble. You’re better off, by far, simply saving your money and paying for a professional cleanout at regular intervals. It’s a relatively quick process, and if you outsource it, hassle-free. What’s not to like about that?
