If you've never heard of the term 'fatberg', you aren't alone. The term has been making the global news rounds as large quantities of fats, oils, and grease (FOG) are discovered accumulated throughout city sewer systems. Just this past week, a massive fatberg in Baltimore was the cause of an almost 1 million gallon stream of sewage being suddenly released into a Maryland stream causing overflows and local flooding. And earlier this month a truly colossal fatberg weighing more than 140 tons was discovered near Whitechapel Road in London.
Hiring a Professional for your Hood Filter Maintenance is the Best for the Environment and Your Wallet
It is critically important to keep your hood filters cleaned appropriately. If your restaurant fails to perform regular filter cleaning, it can result in serious kitchen hazards and failed fire or health inspections - no one wants either of these.
Many restaurants in the Atlanta, Savannah, and Jacksonville areas perform the maintenance of cleaning their hood filters themselves. We’d like to offer you a few notes of caution if you decide it is best to do this work yourself. You can very quickly end up in a far worse position than if you had simply hired a professional filter exchange company.
Did you know that you could be doing your part to help the environment and making extra money just by getting rid of something you were going to throw out anyway?

Dumping the grease down the drain or in the sewer can cause clogged pipes, contaminated water ways and huge problems down the line for the restaurant, the landlord and the city.
