Drain Blockage Prevention Services
Waste food, fats and grease in commercial kitchen sinks and pipe work can quickly build-up. This results in unpleasant odours and often leads to expensive drain blockages and overflowing sinks. It can also increase the risk of contamination since grease sludge can harbour pathogenic bacteria.
Disruption from drainage obstructions can have costly implications for your business and your reputation. Under the Water Industry Act 1991 section 111 it is a criminal offence to discharge into the public sewers any matter which may interfere with the free flow of the sewerage system.
Mechanical cleaning methods such as high pressure water jetting and rodding are often unsuitable and may be a source of bacteria contamination if not operated with care.
Rentokil Specialist Hygiene’s biological dosing service periodically feeds kitchen drain pipes and grease traps with a biological solution containing environmentally friendly bacteria and enzymes, which break down the grease and prevents the build-up from occurring.
This regular dosing provides protection against blockages, offensive odours, flooding, and associated repercussions. Rentokil Hygiene’s compact battery operated unit is unobtrusive and programmed to match the volume and frequency of dose to suit your daily serving times and kitchen routines. The dosing intervals can be increased during peak times in order to ensure optimum protection is maintained.
Following installation, Rentokil Specialist Hygiene carry out scheduled visits to check the condition of the drainage system, top up fluid and ensure dosing system is operating effectively. The automated solution reduces the use of traditional drain clearing techniques and extends the life of the pipe work whilst decreasing the frequency of grease trap emptying.
