In the liquid waste industry, the acronym FOG is infamous... and so are the problems it can cause for your drains.
FOG stands for Fats, Oils and Grease - three of the worst offenders when it comes to causes of drain blockages.
They are a major concern for wastewater treatment facilities because of the damage and complications the can cause in sewers and septic tanks systems.
FOG hardens as it cools and can cause clogs in drains and nearby sewer pipes further down the line. The resulting back flow of raw sewage that result from this can be a serious health hazard, is very costly to repair, and in the worst cases has the potential to close down your business until it's resolved.
Below are a few best practices to minimise FOG damage at your place of business, as recommended in this article.
Business owners can enjoy peace of mind when it comes to grease removal and maintenance by partnering with TWC Drain Care in a preventive maintenance program.
We know from experience that prevention is better than the cure... better for your wallet, your business, your property, and your stress levels!
Our preventative maintenance programs are tailored to suit your individual business needs. We schedule maintenance frequency as your individual business demands require, taking charge of inside and outside grease, drain cleaning, and drain health care.
We call it our preventive maintenance program.
to ensure your drains are flowing freely we start with an initial camera survey which will provide you with the confidence you need that your system is working correctly. Unlike other suppliers, TWC will ensure your program is built to fit your premises - it's not a one-size-fits-all approach, but instead a tailored solution.
Once your program is underway, you’ve immediately taken your drain maintenance to a higher level and no longer need to worry about repeatedly scheduling a maintenance service.
For emergencies, you can relax in the knowledge that our team is on hand for emergency call outs around the clock.
We encourage all our our commercial customers in food-related businesses or institutions such as restaurants, supermarkets, healthcare, and educational facilities to take advantage of our comprehensive maintenance program to prevent FOG problems before they occur.
