If you run and operate a commercial kitchen, a grease trap is a great addition to your kitchen. Grease traps sit in the drain of your sink and prevent grease, food, and other debris from going down the drain and interfering with your plumbing. Here are some of the ways a grease trap will benefit your kitchen.
- Prevents Clogs – Grease is one of the worst things you can pour down your drain. After a while, lots of grease and food waste down your drain will create large clogs and damage the pipes.
- Better for the Environment – When you prevent grease from going down the drain, it allows you to properly dispose of your waste.
- Improves the Smell of Your Kitchen – Instead of having food waste and grease building up in your drain, you can easily clean your grease trap and remove waste from your kitchen, making your kitchen smell nicer.
- Cheaper Than Repairs – Buying a grease trap for your kitchen sink is a cheaper investment than having to replace and repair the pipes. Even if you needed to replace the grease trap after a long period of use, it is still more cost effective than the damage that would need to be repaired from grease buildups.
In addition to the reasons listed above, grease traps are required for businesses that prepare food to comply with health regulations. Making sure you have a grease trap that is well-maintained will benefit your business and keep you in compliance.
