There are systems in all of our homes and businesses that most people often take for granted as they operate silently and out of sight. People don’t generally think of them until something goes wrong and they stop working.

How Grease Traps Function
A grease trap is located in or before your drain as a last line of defense before grease or debris enters your drain lines. Because grease is so damaging to pipes and can create clogs that are nearly impossible to remove without professional help, a grease trap is vital if there is a high risk of grease going down your drains.
Aside from having a high quality grease trap in place, there are a number of steps you can take to keep it from entering your drains in the first place. After all, grease should never go down a drain pipe at all. Pour all kitchen grease and fat into a separate container to be disposed of another way and always use a garbage disposal to break down waste food before it gets put down the drain.
In restaurants, grease traps are more of a necessity. They are not only used in drains, but alongside grills, fryers and service tables to capture grease and keep it separate from your plumbing. If your grease traps are frequently getting clogged or simply not working as efficiently, resulting in clogs and backups, now may be the time to call in a professional.
