Commercial Grease Trap Cleaning

What is a Grease Trap?

commercial grease trap cleaning services provided by Pacific Plumbing and Drain serving Vancouver WAGrease traps reduce the volume of grease, oils, and fats that enter the main sewer line.

However, even small amounts of grease combine with dirt and debris in the wastewater that flows into septic tanks and local treatment facilities. Due to this collection of waste products,  a floating layer of scum forms.

Grease Traps Help Keep Things Flowing

Grease traps, if not regularly maintained, become an issue for restaurants and commercial kitchens.

Since large amounts of oil is used in food preparation in kitchens and restaurants,  scum forms and requires attention.

The amount of scum present determines whether commercial grease trap cleaning is required monthly, weekly, or even daily. Therefore, with professional maintenance, the facility’s grease trap remains clear. 

Most local regulations require monthly service, however in a busy establishment this may not be enough.

Signs of a Clogged Grease Trap

  • Sink connected to grease trap drains slowly
  • Several sinks and toilets are clogging up due to a blockage
  • There is an odor coming from floor drains and sinks
  • An overflowing grease trap is clogging sinks

Clumps of grease and debris escape from the trap and cause blockages further down the plumbing line. However, with scheduled commercial grease trap maintenance, these problems are avoided.

Our professional technicians at Pacific Plumbing & Drain inquire about the facility’s problems, and then inspect the area around the problematic pipes.
