Commercial Kitchens: 3 Maintenance Tasks You Need to Stay on Top Of

a truck used for septic services

Commercial kitchens get a lot of action every day they are in operation. From washing dishes, cleaning oven racks, sanitizing cooking services, cleaning up messes, and preparing foods – commercial kitchens are a hotbed for grime. If you run a commercial kitchen, your bare minimum requirement should be that you aim to meet all necessary standards. Of course, everyone who eats at your establishment hopes that your goal is to exceed those standards. When it comes to keeping a commercial kitchen clean and healthy, cleaning and maintenance are constantly on your mind.

Not all waste that is generated from commercial kitchens gets thrown out in the dumpster. Other systems on the property process liquid and solid waste, and they need maintenance just like any other area within your commercial kitchen. Three areas that are often overlooked on the maintenance schedule include septic tanks, drains and sewers, and grease traps.

  • Septic Tanks: Residential septic tanks should be pumped every 3-5 years, but commercial kitchens on septic systems require more frequent servicing. Failure to have a commercial tank pumped regularly can lead to damage to the septic system. It is recommended that commercial septic systems be pumped at least once a year.
  • Drains & Sewers: Liquid waste has to go somewhere, and it generally finds its way down sink or floor drains. Commonly in commercial kitchens, grease and food debris find their way into the drainage system, leading to backups and blockages in the drain lines. If water is not draining efficiently, you will need to have your drains cleaned of debris and obstructions.
  • Grease Traps: Commercial grease traps are installed to trap and prevent grease, hair, oil, lint, sediment, and other solid materials from entering the plumbing systems where they cannot be processed. Commercial kitchens that use grease traps need to have them cleaned and their waste disposed of in a safe, environmentally friendly method.

Septic Service Pro


Based on 117 reviews

Jim is a true professional who worked with me over months to identify and correct septic field problems. His positive attitude and helpful discussion in resolving issues is the best I found.


Mike and Shane came out and did an outstanding job on replacing our septic pump. Same day service - and they came out on a Friday evening! Mother's day would not have been very happy if they didn't save the day. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!


We had our septic tank pumped and baffle tee replaced. The guys were on time, respectful and quick. They cleaned up very well after the job and even fluffed our pine straw to perfection!! We'd recommend these guys without hesitation.


Michael and Shane did an awesome job. Had to pump the septic,install a new baffle tee and tail out line. Very little yard displaced. Will definitely use Septic Service Pro again. Very pleased.


We live in Dawsonville. The crew that came out was very professional. The company owner explained to me the value and the many details about the septic that I did not know, that is why I chose them in the first place. Excellent service. R.McGary


Jim and his crew installed a new leech field for us quickly and professionally at a very reasonable cost. They handled all of the permitting and inspections and completed the work in a timely manner. Would recommend them to anyone.


Michael and assistant pointed out a leaking toilet that I didn't know I had (saved me $ there!). They also disturbed very little of the yard to get to the tank. Not the super cheapest but no hard upsell when they got here. Very pleased.


The team was efficient, friendly, knowledgeable and FAST to arrive. The bill was extremely reasonable for the work needed to be done. I would HIGHLY recommend Septic Service Pro.


These guys were amazing. Jim and Mike came when they said they would, did the job, explained everything they did. Very courteous,and professional. I am a handicapped person and felt extremely comfortable with them at my home. Thank you!!!!!
