Everything in a commercial establishment such as a restaurant needs to be regularly cleaned and maintained to run smoothly. Adhering to proper washing, sanitizing and other food safety regulations ensures that the employees and customers are happy and healthy. One of the more overlooked tasks may be cleaning out the drains on the floor underneath sinks, soda machines and ice machines. However, keeping drains clean and clog-free is just as critical as any other health and safety practice. Here are some tips to maintain your floor drains.
It’s a common assumption among industrial businesses that SewerGuard™ products (oil separators/grease traps and flor drains) are more of a luxury rather than an actual requirement. It’s this type of mentality, however, that leaves businesses vulnerable to Environmental Health Practitioners’ fines and even prosecution in instances of severe violations.

Grease traps and floor drains are valuable elements in any restaurant, car wash, fuel station or really any environment where there is water or oil runoff. The grease trap and floor drain work hand in hand to create a safer and cleaner working environment. Here are a few benefits of grease traps and floor drains:
Grease traps should always be cleaned and maintained regularly. Proper cleaning and maintenance of traps prevent back-ups and ensure that drains continue to flow freely. If a grease trap goes neglected for too long, then build-up will be much more difficult to eventually remove. Additionally, a neglected trap can attract flies, cockroaches, and rodents, ultimately warding off staff and patrons. Cleaning of overflowing and backed up traps can be an expensive, multi-day ordeal and should be avoided.
Floor drains are required to remove standing water and prevent fat, grease and oil (FOG) pollution from damaging land and sewers surrounding your business. After passing through a floor drain, contaminated water must run through a grease trap in commercial kitchens and an oil separator at fuel stations and car washes before flowing into sewer systems.
