Grease Trap Basics

Grease traps are found in many commercial facilities that handle food, including restaurants and processing facilities. Liquid grease causes a number of problems in septic systems and municipal waste processing plants — any business that produces a lot of grease is required to have a grease trap to prevent excessive amounts of fats and oils from entering their sewage system. A grease trap is essentially a large holding tank to give liquid grease and fat the chance to cool, allowing it to separate from wastewater. Like most plumbing appliances, a grease trap requires regular cleaning and maintenance to run properly.

Commercial Grease Trap Warning Signs

There are a number of signs which could indicate your grease trap needs repair. Slow or backed-up drains, rancid odors, gurgling noises or a slippery, oily floor with no other cause usually indicate your grease trap requires repair or cleaning. Putting off service to your restaurant's grease trap can lead to a number of problems, such as slips and falls, fines from your municipality, and even potentially deadly grease fires. Contact Mr. Rooter Plumbing for all commercial grease trap issues. Not only can we fix the problem, but we can put you on a customized maintenance schedule that prevents it from recurring.

Grease Trap Cleaning: What's Involved

Cleaning a grease trap is a multi-step process that varies depending on the type of trap and the nature of the facility. Typically, service will include emptying the trap, checking for leaks or other potential problems, and thoroughly cleaning it with a non-enzyme based, non-acidic solution. Properly disposing of accumulated grease is another essential component of grease trap cleaning.

How Often Should I Clean My Grease Trap

How often you should clean your grease trap depends primarily on usage, but as a general rule it should be done at least every three months. Ask your local plumber to help you determine the best cleaning and maintenance schedule for your grease trap based on your usage.
