Grease Trap Cleaning Cincinnati Ohio
Commercial Grease Trap Cleaning Cincinnati
Grease and oils can cause extensive damage to a plumbing system. Homeowners know to never directly pour grease down a drain, but, in commercial environments it is notoriously difficult to prevent grease contamination. Grease traps were designed to catch animal and vegetable oils before they cause problems. A grease trap acts as a filter of sorts, separating fats from wastewater, and protecting plumbing.
Grease traps are highly effective, but they do need regular maintenance, including cleaning and pumping. To protect your system and remain within full environmental regulation compliance, you can rely on Septic Service for commercial grease trap cleaning.
Signs That You Need Grease Trap Cleaning Cincinnati
The signs presented by a clogged or full grease trap are similar to those of a faulty septic system. One of the first things you will notice is a foul odor on your business premises. This will be particularly strong around the grease trap access plate, but the odor may also make its way back through your drainage system and through fixtures. Spoiled grease has a distinctly pungent odor, which should be immediately noticeable by your staff. If an odor develops, call for grease trap inspection in the first instance.
Slow draining is another giveaway that you need grease trap cleaning. Water will begin to back up in your pipes, and if you leave the problem you could find that no amount of plunging or hot water flushing will clear the blockage.
With grease trap inspection from our company, you can have complete peace of mind knowing that the blockage has been correctly identified. We will follow up with cleaning and pumping to leave your wastewater system working as intended.
The Process of Grease Trap Cleaning
Grease trap cleaning is a dirty job, which is why it pays to rely on the professionals. We have the experience and equipment to ensure thorough cleaning that leaves your grease trap operating at full efficiency.
The plate lid above your grease trap is removed and cleaned using environmentally friendly detergents. We use a dowel to check the depth of your trap, and remove any standing water caused by the blockage. Grease and sludge are scooped out and stored for safe disposal in compliance with Ohio EPA regulations. We may employ the use of a pumping system for stubborn blockages and large systems.
Grease trap pumping can be completed within the hour or day depending on the size of your system and severity of the blockage. We don’t just remove clumps of oil and debris. We clean the walls, screens, and all parts of your grease trap with environmentally safe detergents.
You’ll be left with an empty system that freely drains water, leaving your business hygienic and free of foul odors.
