Common Problems with Grease Traps

While you should never intentionally dispose of grease down the drain, it’s inevitable that some fat, oil, and grease from dirty dishes will end up down a commercial kitchen sink. That’s where a grease trap comes in. It catches these particles before they can get far enough down the drain to coat the pipes and cause dangerous or damaging blockages. Grease traps need to be cleaned out regularly to prevent overflow into the wastewater system, or else you could face steep fines from the Lehigh County Authority.

When Zoom Drain of Lehigh Valley cleans your grease trap, we use advanced professional tools and techniques to ensure buildup is thoroughly removed.

Our Allentown grease trap cleaning services can help you prevent or remedy many common problems, such as:

  • Unpleasant odors – Grease, animal fat, and rancid oil mingle with bits of food and other waste in a grease trap. While it’s far better to keep these things from washing down the drain, they can start to smell bad if not regularly cleaned out.
  • High maintenance costs – The more buildup inside a grease trap, the longer it will take to pump out. Older accumulation also hardens, which means it can be more difficult to remove. The money saved in additional or overtime charges makes more frequent cleaning worthwhile.
  • Emergency repairs – A clog in your grease trap can be caused by hardened accumulation, which is more likely the longer the trap goes without being cleaned. Clogged grease traps can lead to overflow, which in turn leads to fines and penalties from the Lehigh County Authority plus potential drain and sewer clogs or backflow.
  • Damage to the sewer – Acids and other chemicals caught in the grease trap with the fat, oil, and grease can damage the sewer system and cause leaks, especially when left to sit for too long.
