A grease trap does just what you might think - it traps grease. Not only that, but it traps oils, fats, and other substances that would otherwise be damaging to your plumbing line. While your grease trap is supposed to get clogged with grease (so that you don't experience sewer line clogs instead), you still need to regularly remove the built up oil and gunk (known as brown grease or yellow grease) in order to ensure proper grease trap functioning.
You might be tempted to clean out your grease trap yourself, but we caution highly against it. Once you see the list of necessary grease trap cleaning tools, which include a gas mask, crow bar, and rubber gloves, we think you'll understand why. The substances inside of your grease trap consist of rotting gas, oil, grease, and other food matter, which have all decomposed into a highly toxic sludge. Our grease trap experts in Kendall know just what needs to be done to clean out your grease trap safely, and we have all the proper gear to do so.
So how often should you have your grease trap cleaned?
We recommend cleaning your grease trap at least every 4 to 6 weeks, if not on a bi-weekly or weekly basis. It all depends on how heavily you use your grease trap, however. The more frequently you clean your trap, the less likely you are to experience serious sewer line clogs due to built up and overflowing grease that has solidified within your pipes.
