FOG stands for fat, oil and grease and it refers to the removal of these substances from drainage networks and sewer systems. It is inevitable that these substances will filter through household sinks, but commercial properties cause the most damage due to the amount of waste they produce on a daily basis.
At No1 PHD, we offer a variety of Guildford fat oil and grease (FOG) management services to ensure that commercial sites are limiting the amount of waste they drain. When too much of these substances make their way into our drainage network, blockages can occur, but with our help, we can reduce the risk. For more information about what we can do, give us a call on 01425 208031.
Restaurants, hotels, cafes, schools, offices and many more commercial properties in Guildford contribute to the amount of FOG we find in our drainage and sewerage systems. In fact, any building with a kitchen releases fats and oils, but too much of it can cause significant problems. The main outcome is blockages within the pipework.
Oil and grease tends to stick to the interior of pipes, and a build up of this results in a hardened shell. As this grows, the harder it becomes for waste water to filter through the pipes and into the sewerage system. In some cases, the water is blocked entirely, which disrupts the drainage system and prevents appliances and sinks within your property from working.
This is particularly damaging to commercial businesses because it could leave them out of action, resulting in a significant loss of revenue. Repairing a serious blockage could be costly, particularly if it has affected multiple pipes and drains. With that in mind, we here at No1 PHD offer FOG management services.
Absolutely blown away by the service we received. Took all the stress out of losing our heating and hot water. Highly recommended!

Having a grease trap installed on your premises will go a long way to preventing FOG from becoming a serious problem. The device is designed to collect pieces of food waste before they filter through the pipes. Our expert engineers at No1 PHD are experienced in installing a range of grease traps for small, medium and large businesses. Whatever your preference and need, we will be able to accommodate.
Due to the volume of waste that commercial properties accumulate on a daily basis, it is essential that you keep track of the status of your drainage. By contacting our team at No1 PHD, you will be offered a range of services designed to clean and clear your drains. For example, we are specialists in descaling and fat removal by using high-pressure water jets to blast away the substances.
With the use of a CCTV drain survey, we can delve deep into the pipework to discover the extent of a blockage or just to check the condition of your drains. This will allow our experts to flag up any potential problems that could lead to a more severe issue.
If you operate a commercial kitchen in Guildford, there are some things you can do to help reduce the amount of FOG found within our systems. When it comes to grease, oil and cooled fats, the easy option is to pour it down the sink, but that can lead to a build up in your pipes. Instead, place it in a container that can be disposed of by a waste collection service.
Rather than blasting the fat and grease from fats with water, scrape them into the bin before washing the plate. These are small actions, but if they are adopted across the board, it will limit the amount of FOG that is clogging up our networks.

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.
For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
