What Happens When You Don't Clean a Grease Trap?

Failing to maintain your grease trap system can have several negative consequences. At the most basic level, it causes damage to a vital system in your business.

Some of the results of not cleaning your grease trap regularly can include:

  • Odor Problems. Kitchens that do not get rid of grease may begin to notice strong odors. Grease trap cleaning keeps these odors under control.
  • Fines from the City. Failing to dispose of waste in a proper manner can incur fines from the city. At worst, you may be responsible for the costs of repairing damage to the city sewer line.
  • 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, you could end up paying a lot to clean or repair pipes.
  • Damage to Sewer Pipes. The restaurant's 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 Do I Know If My Grease Trap is Clogged?

If you suspect that your grease trap has become clogged, there are a few telltale signs that you can look out for.

Some signs your grease trap is clogged include:

  • Water Drains Slowly. Firstly, if your sink or dishwasher is draining slower than usual or not at all, then this could be an indication of a clog.
  • Strong Odors or Water Back Up in Your Sinks. Additionally, if there is an unpleasant odor coming from the drain or your sink is backing up with water, then these too can be signs of a grease trap blockage.
  • Waste Water in Your Sink. A further sign might be that wastewater is flowing back into the sink when the tap is turned on.

If any of these issues arise, it would be wise to contact a professional to inspect your grease trap and clear any blockages.

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 on a regular basis.

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 these spills 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. You should also check to make sure your grease trap is functioning. Grease interceptors 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 does not follow regulations for proper grease disposal, you may get fined. The city can hold you responsible for the costs of clogging the city sewer line.
