What is Grease Trap Cleaning?

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

How often should you clean your grease trap?

To run at optimal performance you need to follow regular grease trap maintenance schedules. For high usage establishments grease trap cleaning should be done every 1-3 months and for moderate use every 3-6 months. Factors that influence cleaning frequency are the size of the trap, volume of FOG generated and type of food service establishment.

Benefits of Regular Grease Trap Cleaning:

  • Prevention of Blockages: Regular maintenance of grease traps prevents blockages and keeps your kitchen drains flowing.
  • Compliance with Regulations: Keeping your grease trap clean helps you comply with local health and environmental regulations.
  • Reduction of Foul Odours: Cleaning your grease trap regularly reduces bad odours that can seep into your kitchen and dining areas.
  • Extended Plumbing Lifespan: Regular cleaning and maintenance extends the life of your plumbing system by preventing FOG buildup.
  • Food Waste: Food waste, especially oil and grease can cause major blockages. Regular maintenance is key to reducing buildup and bad odours. Professional grease trap cleaning is essential to tackle these issues.
