An un-serviced grease trap is ticking time bomb ready to go off. Grease traps filter solid fats from wastewater exiting your kitchen area and floor drains. If left un-serviced, the amount of grease in the trap area builds and restricts the water flow to the sewer. The result is that the greasy water backflows into the kitchen through the floor drains, sink compartments and any other drain port. Ecologically, this is a disaster. The grease water itself is filled with bacteria, illustrated by the foul odor of the liquid.
In the event of a backup, the health department requires the restaurant to be shut down in the event of a backup due to the risk of food contamination and public health. If this occurs, the grease traps will then have to be professionally cleaned and the floors professionally disinfected. The cost for downtime and the cost to clean all these areas dwarf the initial cost of having your traps pumped on a regular basis. No restaurant can afford to take this risk. RamPro pumps indoor and outdoor traps of any size and configuration. Most service takes place outside of peak business hours, so your restaurant can maintain peak operation while at the same time getting the services you require.
