Routine grease trap cleaning helps keep pipes in good working order. Grease and other food solids can create clogs that impact your place of business, as well as your municipality. Atlantic Sitton Services provides commercial and government services in New Jersey, including grease trap cleaning. We can help your restaurant, hotel, assisted living facility, or other commercial food establishment with septic and sewer services that keep your kitchen and plumbing systems fully operational.

Our Grease Trap Cleaning and Collection Services

Grease trap cleaning is required by government regulations that protect public water and sewage systems. Manufactured of concrete, the grease trap helps separate fats, oils, and grease from wastewater before it reaches the sewer system. These useful devices are made up of several parts, with a main compartment underground, usually outside the premises. As greasy wastewater from the kitchen enters the grease trap, it cools down, and the fats, oils, and grease form solids that sink away from the wastewater. These solids continue flowing into the sewer system. This process helps reduce contaminants released into the public water system. Grease trap cleaning contributes significantly to reducing and preventing sewage system backups.

Atlantic Sitton Services offers routine grease trap cleaning. We determine the schedule according to the needs of your business or institution, considering factors such as capacity, volume of production, and the type of food preparation. Rather than merely skimming the top of the grease trap, our experienced employees carefully inspect the grease trap to make sure the cleaning is thorough and complete.

Signs That Your Grease Trap Needs Cleaning

Regularly scheduled grease trap cleaning helps your establishment meet regulatory requirements and improves the working environment and functionality of your kitchen. If your grease traps overflow, the resulting backups can contaminate your water system. If there isn’t a sufficient system to separate grease from wastewater, the solidified fats may accumulate inside your pipes.

Signs that signal grease trap cleaning is necessary include:

Clogged or Slow-Moving Drains

When fats, oils, and grease form solids, they will build up inside your kitchen pipes. As the grease trap becomes full, water will flow more slowly. If your drains are slow or not clearing properly, it’s time for grease trap cleaning.

Bad Odors

Rank or foul odors in the kitchen are noticeable for kitchen workers, patrons, and residents. Odors may remain even after you have thoroughly cleaned your commercial kitchen. If so, this is an indication that grease trap cleaning may be necessary, as well as an inspection of the system. Our trained specialists can offer suggestions on any further maintenance that may be required.

Presence of Grease in Unusual Places

If you see grease in unusual places around the kitchen, it’s likely that grease trap cleaning should be scheduled. When grease traps become clogged, the resulting overflow can disperse grease throughout water lines, sewer pipes, and other places that contact the greasy water.
