To clean your grease trap, you need to hire a professional cleaner to get the job done properly. For a safe and efficient clean-out of your grease trap, you will need experienced liquid waste removal contractors with high-quality hydro-jetting equipment to completely clean your grease trap of waste products. Failing to properly clean your grease trap can result in flooding in the kitchen. Even worse, it could cause backups and sanitary sewer overflows, which pose severe health risks to the public that takes specialised equipment and cleaning experts to clear and leave you with big fines to pay.

How often you should clean your kitchen’s grease trap?

  • Weaker drainage – As your grease trap fills up, it becomes more and more difficult for your premises’ drainage to work properly. As more and more grease begins to sit on the surface, it can begin to clog the inlet and outlet pipes of the grease trap, preventing water from draining out. If you are experiencing weaker drainage in your kitchen, then a full grease trap may be the cause.
  • Strong Odour – If you notice a strong smell in your kitchen that never goes away no matter how much you clean your benchtops and other appliances, there is a strong possibility that the smell is coming from a full grease trap. Grease is a combination of food waste, fatty oils and sludge that, when it sits stagnating for too long, begins to smell. You should schedule a cleaning of your grease trap as soon as possible if the smell of your grease traps begins to spread throughout your kitchen.

Two Signs that your Grease Trap needs cleaning.

Grease traps, also known as grease interceptors or grease arrestors, are an essential ingredient in keeping your kitchen clean. However, they are not self-cleaning systems and it can be difficult to keep track of when you should be cleaning your grease trap of fats, grease and oils. Considering the varying sizes of grease traps and the different filling rates depending on how busy your kitchen is, you will need to keep a close eye on your grease trap for any signs that it is nearing its full capacity. 

You should be expecting your grease trap to require cleaning anywhere between one month to three months, but it can be either more or less depending on how often you use your kitchen and how much food waste enters your grease trap. Try to clean out your grease trap whenever it is at least one-quarter of the way full for optimal effectiveness and keep an eye on your grease trap over time to develop a cleaning schedule you can follow.
