How Often Should Grease Traps be Cleaned?

Operating a commercial kitchen comes with a number of unique concerns that go well beyond the concerns of a private home kitchen. For example, your restaurant may be required to have a grease trap to prevent fat, oil, and grease from entering San Francisco’s water system. In order to keep your grease trap working properly, you will want to have your grease trap cleaned by a professional at least once every 90 days. In addition to preventing foul odors and avoiding fines, regular grease trap cleaning will also keep your grease trap pumping as it should, as long as it can.

If you can’t remember the last time your restaurant’s grease trap was cleaned and pumped,┬ácontact a waste disposal company in San Francisco. Make sure to have your grease trap cleaned and pumped before the grease from your kitchen enters the municipal water supply.
