Grease Trap Cleaning FAQs

What Does a Grease Trap Do?

grease trap cleaningA grease trap is a device designed to collect cooking grease that is naturally produced in your kitchen. When functioning properly, the grease trap separates grease and other oil from entering your restaurant’s wastewater, preventing potential water contamination issues.

Why Should I Clean My Grease Trap?

Over time, your grease trap continues to accumulate high levels of grease and other food waste. If it isn’t pumped on a regular basis, this could cause it to overflow, sending contaminated liquids into your local water supply.

What Are the Consequences of Neglecting Grease Trap Cleaning?

If an overflowing grease trap in your establishment contaminates the water supply, you will likely be subjected to heavy fines from local authorities to cover the cost of maintenance and repairs. In addition, the overflow could lead to foul odors and bacterial contaminations in your kitchen, resulting in further problems for your business.

How Often Should I Clean My Grease Trap?

Most municipalities have strict guidelines regarding how often you should schedule grease trap cleaning—such as when the trap is 25% full, or on a quarterly basis. Avoid fines by consulting with local regulations and scheduling cleanings as necessary.
