Clogged plumbing, due to the waste stream of fats, oils and grease (FOG) that flows into your drains, is a disaster for your business. It can cause flooding, work stoppage, food contamination, odors and sanitary issues. Preventative maintenance of drains and grease traps is the key to averting a disaster. Routine Biozyme treatments, applied with the automated Trap Tender dispensing system, can save you money in emergency and pumping service calls, as well as reduce the aggravation and inconvenience associated with trap and drain problems.
- Drain Flies - Also known as moth or sewage flies, they breed in the gelatinous organic layer that forms on the interior pipe walls. While they do not bite, drain flies live and breed in unsanitary places. They fly slowly and are attracted to light, making them very visible to customers.
- Foul Smell - FOG buildup in drains causes a stench similar to rotting food waste. It's pervasive and can ruin the atmosphere of an otherwise pristine customer area.
- Slow Drains - As FOG accumulates, the pipe walls become rough, uneven and and decrease in diameter, thereby slowing the waste stream. Ultimately, they become completely blocked.
- Clean-out Fees - Grease traps and interceptors are designed to prevent excessive FOG from flowing into municipal waste treatment systems. Traps hold organic material in collection chambers until it is removed by specialists at a substantial fee. Since FOG is constantly flowing into the traps, clean-out fees are a recurring expense.
