Grease Trap Cleaning Offaly

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

What is Grease Trap Cleaning?

Grease trap cleaning involves removing 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 trap FOG from wastewater, preventing pipe blockages and sewer overflows.

Regular cleaning keeps your kitchen drains clear and your drainage system functioning smoothly.

How Often Should You Clean Your Grease Trap?

To maintain your grease trap effectively, follow a regular cleaning schedule. For high-usage establishments, grease trap cleaning should be carried out every 1-3 months. For moderate usage, cleaning is recommended every 3-6 months. Cleaning frequency depends on the trap’s size, the volume of FOG produced, and the type of food service.

Benefits of Regular Grease Trap Cleaning

  • Prevention of Blockages: Regular maintenance prevents blockages and ensures your kitchen drains flow freely.
  • Compliance with Regulations: Keeping your grease trap clean helps you comply with local health and environmental regulations.
  • Reduction of Foul Odours: Regular cleaning reduces unpleasant odours 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 bad odours, making professional grease trap cleaning essential.
