FAQ: Grease Trap Services

Why maintain the grease trap?

Grease traps can handle many different kinds of waste, but you have to think about what you’re putting down your drains when you consider your plumbing system as a whole. If you don’t maintain your grease trap, all the grease and cooking oils will build up and create a foul odor. This can be perturbing for employees and customers, and it increases your risk for a grease fire. A neglected grease trap may also leak grease into the municipal water system. This is bad for the community and can result in a fine for your establishment.

How does the process work?

Grease trap pumping helps your sewer system out and doesn’t require too much time. Your plumber or non-hazardous waste removal professional will take measurements to see how much fat, oil, and grease is in your trap before pumping out all of these waste products. The grease trap technician will then dispose of the fats, oils, and greases in a responsible way. At the end of the process, your technician will give your grease trap a thorough cleaning to make sure it’s working at its full capacity.
