Grease Traps & Service in Silver Spring, MD & Montgomery County

If you run a restaurant in Montgomery County, you know that you have to maintain the highest standards in order to keep up with the health codes. Nowhere is that more important than the grease traps in your restaurant. They’re responsible for catching and containing all the fats, oils and grease poured down your drain, and without periodic cleaning and proper repairs, they could leave you in a bad spot very quickly.

At Mallick Plumbing & Heating, we provide excellent grease trap service, starting with installation, if you’re in the process of setting up a new restaurant. We’ll also be there with repair service in the event of a breakdown and thorough maintenance service (including speedy maintenance if you need to make sure your system is still up to code). Finally, when you’re ready for a new grease trap, our team will be there in a flash to make it happen. Give us a call today!

Mike was great. He is very knowledgeable and helped us understand what was going on with our hot water. We'll be using them again.

How Do Grease Traps Work?

A grease trap is essentially a tank where waste water from your Silver Spring restaurant collects as it is washed down your drain. Solid foods settle to the bottom while fats, oils and grease (referred to as FOG in our industry) float to the top. In the middle sits the effluent wastewater, which can be safely pumped out of the tank and into the civic sewer system. Grease traps work exceptionally well in keeping FOG from clogging your pipes, but they need to be cleaned out periodically, and when problems arise, they’re not something you can afford to wait on.

Grease Trap Maintenance Is a Necessity

Depending upon the volume of traffic you get, your grease traps will need to be cleaned out on a regular basis as a standard part of regular business operation. Beyond that, however, cleaning out your grease traps makes an excellent time to check for any burgeoning problems and ensuring that nothing is waiting in the future to shut your grease trap down.

That keeps you ahead of any problems, and if repairs are needed, it allows you to schedule them at your leisure while the problem is still small. This is part and parcel of the kind of service we offer to restaurants and food preparation services in the area. Contact us today to learn more!
