A Grease Trap is a box designed to block grease & food solids from entering your plumbing as well as the city’s plumbing lines.
Regular & proper cleaning of your trap is essential. Simply skimming the grease trap or using enzymes to break up the grease is not adequate. The grease & sediment should be entirely removed from the trap, baffled pulled & cleaned, and GT rinsed out.
Any excess grease or sediment not taken care of properly can enter the out-going plumbing lines, and you could possibly face city fines and inspections.
At HQLC, we will design a cleaning schedule based on your business needs. The frequency of cleaning depends on what percentage of grease and sediment is being washed down the sink into the lines. Our Technicians measure the percentage of grease & food solids that are currently in your trap. We use these measurements to calculate your Service Schedule. Some restaurants need a cleaning every two weeks while others may be able to go a bit longer. After one or two cleanings, our highly trained staff will be able to determine the best frequency for your business.
While HQLC does take some precautions to help restrain the odor that is released when the lid is opened, we generally suggest the cleaning take place while the restaurant is closed. We have schedules into the late night & early morning. HQLC is fully bonded & we have a secure key lock up at our head office. We hold keys & alarm codes for many of our Restaurant partners.
Whatever schedule you need to work around, HQLC will adjust to meet your needs.
