Grease traps protect the plumbing in your business from fats, oils, and grease that might otherwise go down the drain. They require regular cleaning and maintenance to keep them in top condition, and you can count on Reichelt Plumbing to provide you with quality service for the grease traps in your business. With our help, they will remain clean and provide you with the protection you need.
The Problem with Grease
A natural byproduct of cooking, grease starts cooling as soon as it hits your drain. Moving through the plumbing, it continues to cool and starts moving at a slower pace. Eventually stopping, it lines the walls of your pipes and will eventually form a nasty clog. With the sewer line blocked, you will not be able to continue with business as usual, and it can even lead to problems with the health department as sanitation issues develop. However, you can avoid these issues with the help of an experienced Tinley Park plumber.
Regular Cleaning and Maintenance
Traps need to be cleaned regularly to keep them running properly. These grease traps work by separating fats, oil, and grease from water. The contaminants will float to the top of the trap while the water drains successfully through the bottom. Your pipes will remain clean, and you won’t have to worry about sewer backups.
If you and your team don’t have time to clean and maintain the traps, you can trust us to take care of them for you.
Installation and Retrofits
The best time to have traps installed is during site utility construction. While we are happy to handle installations during construction, we also offer retrofit services for existing properties. If you are struggling with backed up drains and grease clogs, we can correct the problem for you.
