The blockage usually occurs unnoticed and causes the greatest discomfort at the worst moments. In addition to households, regular maintenance is even more necessary in public kitchens and restaurants. By cleaning and degreasing the channel, you can easily prevent problems.
What can cause grease in the duct?
Countless factors can be responsible for the grease and blockage of the canal. In kitchens, oily food residues washed down the drain and washing dishes with cold water are the biggest danger.. In addition, such faulty structural solutions can also increase the risks, such as a poorly chosen slope angle or an unreasonably small one, or large pipe diameter.
The resulting material has a characteristic grey-white shade, however, its texture varies widely. It can feel like an ointment, possibly soapy, but it can even take on a more solid form. Plaster-hard deposits require serious intervention. In addition to fats, this substance can contain various chemicals, which can greatly influence its structure.
How the degreasing of the channel is carried out?
Homemade solutions are useless against long-standing fatty blockages, therefore definitely specialist you need to ask for help. Cleaning can be done using several methods. That, which of these is the most appropriate, it is determined by the compactness of the deposited dirt and the material of the pipe system. Consequently, the camera channel inspection in any case, it is extremely important. In this way, the specialist gets an accurate picture of the current state of the channel and what tools are needed for the work.
The very soft, material in an almost plastic state can be removed relatively easily with the help of a high-pressure washer. However, for a slightly harder deposition than this woma the use of a machine is required. It can happen, that the washing must be repeated several times in a row, this way the pipe can become clean again. Dirt with a hard structure can only be removed by a mechanical spiral, as well as woma can be blown up with the combined use of a sewer cleaning machine. Because it requires quite a lot of force, to maintain the integrity of the pipes, routine and professional experience are essential.
Iron pipes create a worse situation in terms of their material, as the greasiness itself can initiate serious rotting. At the end of this, the pipe can be punctured without any intervention. Properties of plastic PVC pipes, that they can harden in the ground, thus they break more easily. Concrete and eternit pipes are slightly more durable, at the same time, due to their uneven inner surface, they can quickly become greasy. In terms of cleanability, KG is PVC, and GEBERIT are considered easy-to-wash pipes.
At the end of the operation, there is no harm in performing the channel camera again, so that the specialist can be convinced of the effectiveness of the work.
How to prevent duct fat?
There are two effective methods of prevention, one is regular maintenance, and the other is the use of the kitchen grease trap. The installation of a grease trap is recommended primarily in larger catering units, but of course it can also be used in households. This structure is practically such a container, which separates waste water based on specific gravity. Oily layers float to the top of the tank, while the food remains sink. The grease trap won't allow it, so that the greasy waste water goes into the sewer, in other words, it prevents obesity. At the same time, it also keeps food residues away. However, for that, for the device to function properly, the tank also needs to be cleaned at certain intervals.
