A nationally-recognized, publicly-traded chain of restaurants recently called on Alpha Energy Solutions to solve a problem.

The kitchens in a few of its restaurants had become a breeding ground for fruit flies, and workers had noticed a pungent odor. The best solution was a thorough cleaning of the drains, where food byproducts had created a sludge and impeding the flow of waste.


Alpha’s Hot Water Jetter

The solution — a thorough cleaning using Alpha’s Hot Water Jetter. In addition to flushing out the system with hot water, Alpha technicians inserted an additive that helped break down organic matter. This dislodged the sludge and improved the smell — and eliminated the issue with fruit flies.

“In this case, the customer can see the value,” said Gerry Lewis, Director of Sales for Alpha. “We were able to service one location, and the customer has now called us in to perform the same service on three others. The hot water jetter is a unique product that cleans in a way that’s superior to other methods.”

Alpha recommends that customers use the service at least twice a year. It can be completed in less than a day and doesn’t disrupt store operations.

“We’re providing a solution to a real issue for restaurants, and that’s why we expect our jetter to be busy as the weather turns warmer,” said Lewis.

The new technology does not damage pipes and is the most effective cleaning method on the market.
