Which Restaurant Systems Need Regular Service?
One of the main causes of emergencies is the failure to employ preventative maintenance. Our technicians see this all the time, especially in restaurants. Food establishments think they are ok by simply doing the bare minimum to meet legal guidelines. Unfortunately, this isn’t always enough to avoid unexpected downtime. A professional needs to be inspecting and servicing your wastewater facilities on a regular basis. This is the only way to ensure a disaster will not keep your business from disruption during the busy lunch hours.
Don’t Neglect These Components
Grease traps need to be pumped and cleaned on a regular basis, and most towns have laws regulating this. Some restaurants have indoor traps, and some have outdoor grease interceptors. Make sure you’re using a service provider like EarthCare who understands the differences and has the proper equipment to properly service them.
Routine pump service also applies to septic tanks. Sludge and solid waste that doesn’t break down must be removed and disposed of properly. If your restaurant is not hooked up to the public sewer system, make sure you are on a regular septic pump schedule.
Finally, you also want to show some love to your drain lines. These are the vessels your wastewater needs to flow freely. Keep these clear with annual jetting service and you won’t have to worry about stubborn clogs in the kitchen.
Preventative Maintenance is Key
Make sure you are addressing the above items, and we’re confident you won’t have to worry about losing profitability from a wastewater tragedy. You might also consider training your kitchen staff on the importance of things like scraping food from pans and plates into the trash and using strainers. These simple tasks also play a big role in preventative maintenance. To learn more about ways to improve wastewater management at your restaurant, Contact Us or go ahead and Request Service Now.
