Genesis Biosciences Calling On Businesses To Check Their Drains After Lockdown
With hotels, restaurants and cafés closed to the public for months, many commercial kitchens have been left idle and unused and so too have the properties’ drainage systems.
As venues begin to reopen, business owners will need to ensure their premises continue to meet all regulations and hygiene requirements which includes maintaining clear drains.
For pubs, restaurants and all other businesses with commercial kitchens there are strict regulations in place for how waste products must be disposed of, in particular fats, oils and grease (FOG).This is to prevent them from reaching water systems and con- tributing to the increasing fatberg problem as well as blocked pipes, bad odours and potentially flooding.
While grease traps are designed to stop FOG from entering the drainage system, regular maintenance to keep them operating efficiently and with minimal odours is essential.With kitchens dormant for some time, and grease traps left untouched, there is a chance fatty deposits from pre- lockdown may have caused blockages which inevitably will require chemical or mechanical treatment.
Genesis Biosciences, which specialises in creating probiotic cleaning solutions, has developed a compact and effective system for easily maintaining drainage systems and grease traps. GD Ultra is a simple to use dispenser system which automatically distributes a daily dose of powerful beneficial bacteria that work to break down FOG. The dispenser can easily be plumbed in to the pipe to feed the probiotics in to the system.
One 310ml GD Ultra cartridge will last for three months so once installed, it eliminates the need for manual dosing ‘and can ultimately reduce waste disposal costs for those in the hospitality industry.
