Why restaurateurs need drain maintenance

Abell Pest Control

No matter how much scrubbing you do, it can feel impossible to get rid of grease in a restaurant. And while many chefs know never to pour grease down the drain, new hires may not. Lifehacker noted that bacon fat - which can solidify at room temperature - should be thrown out with the rest of the garbage. If it's not, it can solidify, ultimately blocking pipes and creating sewage problems.

Kitchens aren't the only places in restaurants that see a buildup of residue. Bathrooms have so much foot traffic that they can become dirty quickly. Spills and grease buildup that occur in each of these locations can create the perfect environment for fruit flies. These small pests can cause a nuisance for diners and workers alike. According to CBC, these pests can quickly reproduce - and grow in as little as a week. If a spill goes untreated, you can soon hear the constant buzzing of fruit flies.

In order to get rid of these fruit flies, you need to get rid of the cause - and that may require bio-remediation services.

What are bio-remediation/drain maintenance services? These services are just one part of the integrated pest management approach Abell uses when handling pest problems. For drain maintenance, Abell uses a food-grade and vegetable-based foam that can break down the grease and organic matter anywhere in a restaurant. This can make it easier for restaurant owners to avoid a pest problem.

Incorporating a preventative tool for keeping drain build-up to a minimum is also essential. That's why Abell offers ProBack dispensers. These minimize the chance of build-up by releasing enzymes consistently into the drain line. This can also decrease the risk of unpleasant odors wafting through a restaurant and disturbing guests and servers.

Why choose bio-remediation/drain maintenance from Abell Bio-remediation can be a more beneficial strategy for a restaurant than using chemical pesticides to clear out fruit flies, such as methyl bromide, which can create some nasty side effects. It may also be more cost efficient to maintain these services than shutting down a restaurant for several hours - or days! - in order to manage a pest problem. Preventative steps can help your business maintain a positive image with customers and health inspectors!
