Grease Trap Cleaning Clare

Welcome to Drain Away, your local grease trap cleaning experts in Clare. A grease trap in a commercial kitchen is essential to catch fats, oils, and greases before they enter the sewer system. Based in Offaly, we specialise in keeping your kitchen grease traps clean and running smoothly. We cover the whole of Clare so your commercial kitchen’s drainage will flow freely.

What is Grease Trap Cleaning?

Grease trap cleaning is the removal of fats, oils, and greases (FOG) that accumulate in your grease trap system. Grease traps (also known as grease interceptors) are plumbing devices installed in commercial kitchens to catch FOG from wastewater, and prevent pipe blockages and sewer overflows. Regular cleaning keeps your kitchen drains clear and your drainage system running smoothly.

How Often Should You Clean Your Grease Trap?

To optimise your grease trap’s performance, adhere to a maintenance schedule. For high-usage establishments, grease trap cleaning should be performed every 1-3 months. For moderate usage, aim for cleaning every 3-6 months. The cleaning frequency depends on factors such as the trap’s size, the volume of FOG produced, and the type of food service provided.

Benefits of Regular Grease Trap Cleaning

  • Prevention of Blockages: Regular maintenance prevents blockages, ensuring that your kitchen drains remain unobstructed.
  • Compliance with Regulations: Keeping your grease trap clean helps you comply with local health and environmental regulations.
  • Reduction of Odors: Regular cleaning reduces unpleasant odors that can permeate your kitchen and dining areas.
  • Extended Plumbing System Life: Regular maintenance extends the life of your plumbing system by preventing FOG build-up.
  • Effective Food Waste Management: Regular maintenance reduces build-up and odors, making professional grease trap cleaning essential for efficient food waste management.
