The Benefits of a Maintenance Plan for Your Grease Trap

A commercial kitchen can only operate at its best when everything within functions as it should, including the essential, and legally required, grease trap. But keeping a grease trap working at the height of its efficiency requires a lot of cleaning and maintenance, jobs that most commercial kitchens are discovering are much more manageable when entrusted to an expert in the field. Aqua Mundus understands the intricacies of grease management and offers thorough maintenance plans that not only ensure your ongoing kitchen operations but also remove the headache of compliance. 

Grease traps come in an array of shapes and sizes, each designed to meet the needs of kitchens of varying scales and complexities. From under-sink models that cater to small establishments to large in-ground units for bigger operations, the type of grease trap installed is determined by the volume and nature of the fats, oils and grease (FOG) wastewater produced. However, irrespective of type, the efficiency of a grease trap is significantly improved by a dedicated maintenance schedule. 


Pre-Planned Maintenance: A Proactive Approach 


Aqua Mundus champions the philosophy that ‘prevention is always better than cure’ through its Pre-Planned Maintenance (PPM) for grease traps. This proactive approach ensures that keeping your grease traps operational is not just a reactive solution that comes into play when a problem arises, but is instead regularly serviced, cleaned and maintained to prevent kitchen-closing issues from ever occurring. PPM involves a suite of services tailored to the unique needs of each business, designed to avert costly business downtimes: 


Scheduled Maintenance 


Maintenance tasks under an Aqua Mundus PPM plan are methodical and thorough. Our experienced professionals carry out scheduled inspections and cleaning, ensuring every component from the inflow to outflow works at peak efficiency. The meticulous cleaning process not only removes accumulated FOG but also identifies any potential issues before they escalate into costly repairs. 


Grease Trap Emptying and Cleaning 


Integral to PPM is the emptying and cleaning service. Aqua Mundus manages the disposal of collected FOG efficiently, adhering to legal requirements and providing businesses with the necessary documentation. This aspect of maintenance is not just about operational hygiene but also about legal compliance and environmental responsibility. It’s one less thing for you to worry about. 


Customised Service Agreements 


Recognising that no two kitchens are the same, Aqua Mundus offers highly bespoke maintenance plans. You are in full control of the regularity of our services, and the nature of the tasks we carry out is customised, taking into consideration your kitchen's output, the type of grease trap installed, and the specific operational requirements of your business.  


Major Benefits of a Grease Trap Maintenance Plan 


A grease trap maintenance plan is a strategic investment in the seamless operation of your commercial kitchen. The peace of mind that comes with knowing every aspect of your waste management system is handled professionally cannot be overstated. Here are just some of the benefits our PPM service delivers: 

Business Continuity: Regularly serviced grease traps minimise the risk of blockages and backups, ensuring the kitchen remains operational without costly interruptions. 

Extended Equipment Life: Consistent maintenance extends the lifespan of a grease trap, which can result in significant cost savings over time.
