Don’t wait for any of the 5 signs that your grease trap needs maintenance. By then it might be too late. Cleaning a grease trap must be done properly and should be performed by a professional to avoid problems down the road.

  1. Unpleasant Odors – One of the most common wake up calls that you’re in the need for professional service to clean your grease trap is a bad smell, usually coming from the kitchen. A clogged grease trap can lead to a backing up of sewer gas that hangs in the air creating a less than appetizing atmosphere.
  2. Slow Drainage or Backed Up Drains – Always a sign that things aren’t going well in your drainage system. If you notice that sinks, dishwashers or floor drains aren’t eliminating water in a timely manner, you are experiencing symptoms of fats, oils, grease and solids in your drain system.
  3. Grease in The Grease Trap – If you have access to your grease trap and notice that the grease is taking up 1/4 or more of the total liquid depth, it’s time to make a call and hire a professional for grease trap maintenance before drain cleaning is necessary.
  4. Grease in Unusual Places – Noticing grease around your kitchen is a sign that grease and sewage is backing up and making itself known. This is one of the last signs that you’re overdue for a cleaning.
