Temporary Kitchen Closure Procedure during Covid-19
Firstly, we wish all of our clients the best of luck during these unprecedented times which have hit the foodservice industry very hard.
We wish all of our clients and their staff the best of health. #StaySafe
Please find below a guide on what to do with your grease trap during a temporary kitchen closure.
Remember, your grease trap contains food waste particles, animal fats, vegetable oils, and greases. If your grease trap is not looked after for weeks or maybe months, you will return your kitchen operation to a nasty surprise when the sinks are used again.
To prevent drain line blockages, grease trap malfunctions, and rancid smells or overflows. Please follow the below instructions.
If you feel your grease trap requires an engineer service visit to correctly close the system down, and instructions left ready for kitchen operation. Please contact us to discuss a reactive visit or brining your next planned maintenance service visit forward.
