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.

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:

not at all, then this could be an indication of a clog.

your sink is backing up with water, then these too can be signs of a grease
Waste Water in Your Sink. A further sign might be that wastewater is flowing back into the sink

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.
