BEST PRACTICES – YOU CAN HELP
• Wipe down dishes and place waste food in your food waste compost or garbage.
• Keep waste cooking oil, fats and grease separate for recycling. If you have a deep fryer, never dump spent oil down a sink or other drain. Cloudburst provides free collection service for clean cooking oils.
• Do not put tooth picks, swizzle sticks, or other waste down your sink. Use a screen to catch debris before it goes down the drain.
These measures will help reduce the necessary trap cleaning frequency.
Grease traps help reduce the
accumulation of FOGs and debris in your sewer lines. However, they cannot
entirely eliminate accumulations. FOGs are dissolved in hot water, but as the
water cools and flows out they solidify. Periodic cleanout of your sewer line
is also necessary. Cloudburst recommends
preventive cleaning of your sewer pipes. We have partnered with Spartan Drain
& Recycling, which provides full service drain line service. Spartan can
evaluate your need for regular preventive maintenance, as well as grease trap
installation and basic plumbing services.
