Grease traps are an essential part of a highly-productive commercial kitchen. If your grease traps are not well maintained, the unpleasant odors of rotten food particles may take over your cooking area, and possibly the eating area of your consumers. This could eventually lead to costly backups that shut down the kitchen. At Commercial Grease Trap Cleaning Corp., we can help ensure your kitchen stays clean, odor-free, and full functioning. Today, we are sharing three tips for preventative grease trap maintenance to help you make the most of your time and money.

Grease Trap Preventative Maintenance Tips

1. Train Staff 

Our first tip is to ensure staff members are trained to remove food waste before washing dishes. Disposing of food and oils properly in the kitchen will help prevent unnecessary and costly emergency calls. A well-trained staff can help ensure you are not faced with a surprise visit outside your routine maintenance.

2. Schedule Ahead of Time

Another tip is to schedule routine visits in advance. At Commercial Trap Cleaning Corp. we recommend service every three months at a minimum. When you schedule recurring appointments ahead of time, you won’t forget to have your drains cleaned. We know our customers have busy schedules and many other priorities. By scheduling your drain cleaning ahead of time, you will have one fewer item to complete on your to-do list.
