What’s the Average Amount of Grease Produced by Restaurants Yearly?

A typical fast food restaurant in the U.S. will produce approximately 35 pounds of grease every day. Gross! That number can vary according to the restaurant’s daily or weekly activity. A business that is judged by the quality of its food should be doing everything possible to ensure its kitchen is operative and producing delicious menu items at all times. Without efficient plumbing, cooking and washing dishes isn’t possible and hurts profit. Grease trap maintenance plays a huge role in a productive restaurant kitchen but is often neglected in the mix of other seemingly more important items. Let’s bring some attention to this valuable topic today.

Should I Hire Someone To Clean My Grease Trap?
Cleaning a grease trap yourself is easy, right? Just open it up and skim off the hardened grease. Nope! A grease trap is a complicated machine with several working parts. It takes a professional to properly disassemble it, thoroughly clean the insides, pump out all the dirty water, and foresee any problems based on the condition of the trap. An inexperienced person attempting to take on a grease trap could end up with a big mess in their kitchen. Plus, a professional will be able to properly dispose of the waste.
