Because your grease trap has an important function, it needs to be cleaned regularly. A neglected grease trap comes with risks that include blockages, backups, and an overflowing receptacle.

Expert Grease Trap Repair and Maintenance
Your grease trap should be cleaned every one to three months, depending on the frequency of use. Routine grease trap maintenance and pumping keeps the fats, oils, and grease from building up. And cleaning out grease trap buildup prevents problems with your receptacle. When we perform professional grease trap cleaning, we first skim the surface to collect any debris before inserting a vacuum into the grease trap to remove the solids. Next, the remaining water is vacuumed, and the sides and bottom of the receptacle are cleaned.
Once clean, our team will check the grease trap for any damage and wear, clogs, or loose parts. Complete cleaning and inspection helps us determine whether grease trap repair or part replacement is required.
Blockages in your pipes can range from a minor inconvenience or a major catastrophe. Our drain cleaning services can help rid stubborn clogs and restore proper flow within your pipes.
When to Call for Grease Trap Installation and Replacement
When a regular cleaning won’t fix your grease trap’s unpleasant smell, consider having a new one installed. Are you needing to pump your grease trap more often than usual? Is your grease trap overflowing or clogging frequently, despite routine maintenance? These are signs that grease trap replacement is probably the best option. A grease trap that is older, and made of metal, is prone to rust and corrosion, and won’t last as long as a newer model. You may need grease trap installation services if you have a metal unit that is at least seven years old.
