Drain Cleaning

Grease trap maintenance and cleaning services, performed on a routine schedule keeps drains flowing smoothly to prevent costly back-ups, while keeping your business up and running smoothly. Grease traps are engineered to stop fats, oils or grease (F.O.G.) from entering the sewer lines. Left unchecked, F.O.G. cools, then solidifies and sticks to the insides of the pipes, trapping food particles and other debris. Over time, this solid mass continues to grow until it obstructs the flow of waste water and causes sewage to back up.

The easiest way to solve this problem is to prevent F.O.G. from ever entering the sewer system. However, grease traps are designed to retain FOG usually from one location. Because they hold small quantities of captured F.O.G., grease trap maintenance must be performed frequently and regularly. Most cities and towns require monthly grease trap cleaning. Depending on the trap size and usage, more frequent service may be required. Local Sewer Districts, Health Boards, and Environmental Regulations have specific requirements for compliance. We make sure you stay in compliance, while keeping your business running smoothly.


  • DO NOT pour boiling water into a trap connected sink. This actually liquefies the F.O.G. and forces it into the sewer pipe.

  • DO NOT connect garbage disposals to a trap.

  • DO NOT connect high-temperature dishwashers to a trap.

  • DO NOT put chemicals, bleach, additives, or drain cleaners into a trap – This is often the biggest source of clogs, as chemical agents work to destroy naturally beneficial bacteria.

    Should I use biological agents, enzymes, or bugs to help maintain my grease trap? Using biological agents, enzymes, or bugs emulsifies the grease, allowing it to pass through the grease trap and into your sewer line. Grease then solidifies and adheres to that very line, past your grease trap. This will clog your outgoing sewer line, causing costly backups and major repairs. Further, most local state and city guidelines still require that grease traps need to be pumped regularly, even if enzymes or bugs are used.
