Grease Trap Cleaning Service
Restaurant Grease Can Clog the Drains in Your Building
Wastewater from a commercial food preparation area such as a restaurant kitchen, school cafeteria, bar, hotel restaurant or hospital courses through a grease trap, the oil and grease ascend to the surface inside the grease trap device and are caught utilizing a system of ‘baffles’. The oils and grease that are caught in the grease trap fill it up from top down, pushing the “clean” water out of the base of the device and into sewer lines. These traps need to be pumped, serviced and maintained ( with sewer jets ) to operate effectively.
High Pressure Sewer Jets Are Effective
At Cooke’s we pump and clean restaurant, bar and cafeteria grease traps in Port St. Lucie and Stuart with a high-pressure sewer jet to jet the sewer lines to remove grease and debris. Here we used our Harben sewer jet using 4000 psi water pressure at 20 Gallons per minute (GPM).
