No one wants to deal with a grease trap in any scenario. The fact of the matter is that while grease traps perform an essential function in a restaurant, they’re ultimately pretty gross. So when something is wrong with your grease trap, it can feel like drawing straws is the only fair way to get someone to open it up and deal with it.

If you’ve been dealing with a full grease trap, we have good news. You can call off the company-wide rock-paper-scissors tournament because Mr. Rooter Plumbing provides commercial grease trap pumping services.

Read on to learn more about our services and how grease traps work.

What Is Grease Trap Pumping?

Grease trap pumping is the process of removing the materials that accumulate in a grease trap, taking them away to the proper processing facilities. A grease trap intercepts grease and oil from wastewater in kitchens before that water flows through to the sewer lines. This works because grease and oil aren’t as dense as water, so these substances float on top. A grease trap catches this grease using a series of “baffles.” These traps eventually need to be cleaned once the grease buildup has become too thick.

Types of Commercial Grease Traps

There are three main kinds of commercial grease traps used in businesses in the United States:

  • Grease traps, or small passive hydro-mechanical grease interceptors
  • Automatic oil and grease cleaning systems
  • Pre-cast, big concrete gravity grease interceptors

At Mr. Rooter Plumbing, we service all three kinds of grease traps. Call the location in your area to find out if your local Mr. Rooter provides the grease trap pumping services you need.
