Everything You Need to Know About Grease Trap Pumping, Lincoln, Nebraska

Using a grease trap comes with a certain level of responsibility for keeping it clean and functioning safely, which is where grease trap pumping comes into play. Many people who make use of a grease trap on a daily basis, however, are unaware of how to maintain and clean their grease trap, so it’s a wise idea to get help from a professional drain cleaning and rooter service.

The first step in understanding how grease trap pumping fits into your plan is to have an accurate idea of how often it must be done to keep things running smoothly. As a general rule, grease traps should be pumped every three months to ensure it stays clean and sanitary for use. Of course, this schedule may vary based on how often you use your grease trap, so if you’re unsure of how often yours needs to be serviced, ask a professional.

grease trap pumpingGrease traps work by catching the oils and fatty substances that make their way inside the drains (primarily in kitchens) to prevent serious clogs from stopping up. Without a trap, grease and fat will accumulate over time, making for an unhygienic workspace. Expert grease trap cleaners will ensure all waste and residue is removed so you can feel confident that you’re cooking and working in a cleaner environment. 

While many people assume grease trap pumping is something they can do on their own, the reality is that the amount of grease that usually resides in a commercial drain cannot be cleared by store-bought substances. Rather, you’ll need a professional with the right tools and supplies to thoroughly clean the area and make sure the drains are able to run smoothly. If it’s been a while since you last had your drains checked by a professional, they may take some extra time to inspect the system and give you some insight as to how you can minimize the amount of grease you allow in your pipes.
