What Happens When You Don't Clean a Grease Trap?
Failing to provide regular maintenance on
grease trap systems can have several negative consequences. At the most basic level, it causes
damage to a vitally important system in your business.
Odor Problems - Kitchens that do not effectively eliminate grease will begin to acquire
unbearably strong odors. A grease trap needs to be cleaned to keep these
odors under control.
Fines from the City - Failing to properly dispose of waste can incur fines from the city.
At the worst, one could incur the costs of covering damage to the city
Damage to the Grease Trap - It is pointless to waste the investment of a grease trap by not keeping
it maintained. Even if the system is not damaged, costs may be incurred
from pipes needing to be cleaned or repaired.
Damaging Sewer Pipes - The restaurants sewer system is as vulnerable to grease as the city
sewer system. Avoid the expense of damaging the sewer by keeping grease
out as much as possible.

How often should I clean my grease trap?
This depends on the size of your trap and how much grease your establishment
produces. Busy restaurants should have their grease trap cleaned monthly.
Some kitchens may be able fine to clean every two or three months, especially
if the trap is larger.
Can a grease trap catch fire if it is not maintained?
Yes. Improper disposal and handling of grease is one of the most common
causes of kitchen fires. A grease trap can become a fire hazard if it
is not emptied regularly.
Does kitchen grease have a negative impact on the environment?
Yes, unfortunately. Animal fats and vegetable oils can harm wildlife and
aquatic life. The EPA claims that spills of these substances can have
similar effects as spills of petroleum oils.
What if fats, oils, and grease have built up in my sewer system anyway?
If you have a sewer clog from grease, we can provide hydro-jetting to clean
it out. But you should also check to make sure your grease trap is functioning
since it should prevent this from happening.
Will the city hold me responsible if my sewer contributes to a clog in
the city sewer line?
If your restaurant or business is not complying with regulations for disposing
of grease properly, you will likely be responsible to pay for the costs
of clogging the city sewer line.
