Grease traps are an essential part of any commercial kitchen, and and are crucial for ensuring that FOGs in your cooking environment are dealt with correctly. They’re not just time-saving, they can help save you money and help the environment too. With Christmas just around the corner, why is now the best time to invest in a grease trap for your commercial kitchen? Read on for our top tips.
Christmas is an expensive time for everyone, and it’s not the ideal time to have to call out someone to clear a blocked drain! A grease trap will ensure that your sewers and drains will suffer far less blockages, making it a useful safeguard to prevent unnecessary kitchen maintenance.
The temperatures drop around Christmas, allowing fat to start solidifying quicker than before, and suddenly your drains can become even more blocked and more difficult to clean. This can all be nipped in the bud by fixing the problem before it begins, with a grease trap that stops waste FOGs from entering your drainage system.
More grease is created at Christmas
It’s estimated that 50% of all sewer overflows are down to blockages of Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG). In the lead-up to Christmas, it’s almost certain that your kitchen will start producing more FOG than ever; this is the perfect time to invest in a grease trap to catch all these extra fats and oils to ensure your drainage system stays clean.
