Grease Trap Cleaning Kilkenny

Welcome to Drain Away, your local grease trap cleaning experts in Kilkenny. A grease trap in a commercial kitchen is essential to catch fats, oils, and greases before they enter the sewer system. We specialise in keeping your kitchen grease traps clean and running smoothly. We cover the whole of Kilkenny 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 get the best out of your grease trap follow a maintenance schedule. For high usage establishments, grease trap cleaning should be done every 1-3 months. For moderate usage every 3-6 months. Cleaning frequency is dependent on the size of the trap, volume of FOG produced, and type of food service.

Benefits of Regular Grease Trap Cleaning

Prevention of Blockages: Regular maintenance 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 Odors: Regular cleaning reduces unpleasant odors that can permeate your kitchen and dining areas.

Longer Plumbing Life: Regular maintenance extends the life of your plumbing system by preventing FOG build-up.

Food Waste Management: Regular maintenance reduces build-up and bad odors, making professional grease trap cleaning essential.
