For all commercial kitchens, we recommend a vented range hoods. Make sure you change the filters in your hoods every three to six months to keep them working as intended.

A commercial kitchen can produce a lot of greasy water that otherwise might find its way into the sewer system. Without a grease trap catching all that goopy water, the septic system could clog, leading to stinky and expensive sewer backups. A grease trap prevents all that by funneling the greasy water into the trap. Once inside, the trap allows the heated water to cool before separating the FOG (food, oil, and grease) from the water. The food waste floats to the top and the water flows downward unobstructed into the sewer system.
How often should grease traps be emptied?
We recommend having your grease traps cleaned at least once every three months. Commercial kitchens that cook at a higher volume might benefit from monthly cleaning instead.
