Gettin’ Grilled: May Means Barbecues, Burgers, and Spill Hazards

According to several Internet sources, May is both national hamburger month and national barbeque month. And while the thought of hamburgers sizzling on the backyard grill is enough to make most people run for the secret sauce and other fixings, if you own a restaurant, you’re going to want a different kind of “hamburger helper” come summer, when this cash cow can become a liability, fast.

We’re speaking, of course, of grease. The FOG (fats, oil and grease) that’s accumulating right over your head, right now, and may be destroying your roof while creating a real fire hazard.

After its done there, FOG will typically make its way into your drains, creating even more problems for you. As cities and states pass legislation aimed at protecting storm drains and the environment, you may be liable for expensive fines.

Don’t despair. The team at Impact Absorbents understands the food service industry. We eat, too. So we developed the revolutionary Grease Catcher System. With Grease Catcher, you can protect your kitchen roof from damage or fire by automatically catching andabsorbing greaseand oils that drip from your kitchen exhaust fan.

While you’re downstairs, cooking up a storm and chewing the fat with customers, Grease Catcher will be upstairs, silently ensuring that the more dangerous kinds of fat stay put, rather than creating a spill containment and spill clean up emergency.

We hear there’s a national mousse day in November. If you’re a fan of chocolate, stay tuned for dessert and keep the XSORB Universal handy.
