Bad smells affecting your restaurant’s hygiene and reputation? Here’s how nature can help you clean & unblock your kitchen drains…
Nothing can turn customers away faster than a bad smell. If your establishment is struggling with bad drains and sewer smells then you need to act fast!
Why professional kitchens need a commercial drain cleaner
All it takes is one mocking Tweet or an awkward Instagram post – if someone enters your premises and it smells bad, then all your hard work can come unstuck. And the biggest source of stink for most restaurants is the drains. Grease traps, blocked drains, fats and oils can all cause problems for you and your business. That’s why an effective, eco-friendly, commercial drain cleaner matters. But where do you start?
Well, there are two simple solutions to keep your restaurant selling fresh, your hygiene score up and your customers happy.
But first, let’s have a sniff at some of the big questions around smelly drains.
Is sewer smell dangerous?
Although it is often deeply unpleasant, the only thing at risk is your business’s reputation. Of course it depends on what goes down the drain, but the smelly gas is often made up of hydrogen sulphide, and methane and ammonia can also be present.
Yet while these gases can be dangerous – hydrogen sulphide is a toxic gas after all – usually the concentrations in a commercial kitchen are not high enough to cause death. Ill health, on the other hand, can be an issue. Regardless, it’s important to tackle the issue as soon as it is detected.
How do I get rid of a smelly kitchen drain?
After using a plunger, the next stage is to put something down the kitchen drain. Traditionally, these have been harsh chemicals or enzymatic cleaners- yet these aren’t always the best or most effective method, especially for the environment.
That’s why we developed Evogen Professional Grease Drain Line – the ideal commercial drain cleaner for any restaurant, pub, café or hotel.
Grease Drain Line
Evogen Professional Grease Drain Line completely degrades FOG (Fats, Oils and Grease) and it intermediate compounds all the way to carbon dioxide and water. Its effective bacterial action reduces the odours associated with grease traps, interceptors and drain lines within hours of usage. Continued use will find traps and drains left clear of all FOG and blockages.
And it works without emulsifying the grease. This protects and prevents negative impact on the physical function of grease traps and grease interceptors too. On top of all this, our low toxicity eco-benign® formula minimises environmental impact.
In short, Grease Drain Line works and it doesn’t damage your equipment.
You can also tackle the problem of smelly drains before they arise with Evogen Professional GD Ultra.
Once installed, the dispenser regularly deposits FOG degrading natural beneficial microbes into the pipework, maintaining free-running and odour-free drains.
Evogen Professional GD Ultra is environmentally-sensitive too. It removes the need to use hazardous chemicals, improving your working environment. It also will not adversely affect drainage pipes, walls or bondings.
Why a drain cleaner from Evogen Professional helps you and the environment
At Genesis Biosciences, we pride ourselves on our eco-benign® technology. We are fully committed to creating and developing the most environmentally-responsible microbial and antimicrobial products available. The cleaning industry has historically relied on using harsh chemicals that can be harmful to employees and the environment, and this needs to change – that’s why we created Evogen Professional.
Our probiotic, commercial drain cleaners uses good bacteria to colonise the pipework, out-competing the bad bacteria and degrading the volatile fatty acids and organic intermediates that cause bad odours . They act quickly to neutralise foul-smelling drains, especially at lower pH ranges found in grease traps and grease interceptors.
This product is demonstrably more effective than conventional enzyme based drain cleaners as it is designed to produce a continuous and renewable supply of highly active beneficial bacteria for fat and grease degradation. Unlike enzymes, that have short -term limited activity, the good bacteria strains in Evogen Professional can adapt to different drainage conditions present and produce the correct enzymes required for optimal and complete FOG breakdown. This continuous bio-film adheres to the system, continually degrading FOG and preventing blockages and malodours.
