Fats, Oils and Grease: Bacillus vs. The Alternatives

  • Jenna Trusso

What do many commercial, residential, industrial and institutional facilities all have in common? If you said a door, you’re technically correct; but for the purpose of today’s article the correct answer was Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG)!  All of your customers facilities have drains, and drains are sought-after hosts for FOG. FOG commonly builds up in pre-rinse stations and dishwashers, compartment sinks, mop sinks, floor drains, floor sinks and trough drains.

The accumulation of FOG can be caused by a multitude of different sources; lubricating oils, road construction, cooking, and more. Regardless of the cause, FOG causes costly problems when left untreated.

With FOG as a leading cause of drain and sewer backups, a high-quality product that gets rid of fats, oils and grease should be a staple in your Industrial and Institutional product line.
