Fats, oils and grease (FOG) are potentially very dangerous towards the environment and for the integrity of your business. These three products mixed with food can block any drainage system or sewer if disposed of incorrectly. Many commercial kitchens do not have the correct disposal facilities which eventually leads to drains being blocked with hardened FOG, this could lead to floodings in your business, surrounding homes, businesses, parks, and gardens.

What are the risks?
Your business will be affected if you have a build up of FOG in your drainage system. The pipes that your commercial kitchen uses will have a decreased capacity that will need regular cleaning just to keep your business running, this will quickly add up and prove a costly expense. It also will be frustrating for your team to deal with FOG in their job roles, performing normal duties will be more complicated and could be hindered.
