Commercial Grease Trap Cleaning Toronto


Grease trap cleaning is possibly one of the messiest problems with drains. Such things as grease, cooking oil, drain sludge, liquid waste build up can cause issues. The grease trap is located in the S section of the drain pipes under the sink, and the purpose is to retain the grease and waste stopping it from entering the waste water system. If large amounts of oil and grease from cooking escape through the grease trap it can harm the environment. When it cools, oil and grease hardens and can plug the pipes creating another problem of a blocked sink drain and pipes, possibly causing the sink to overflow.

A grease trap, also called a grease interceptor, in a sink is a gadget attached to the plumbing within the pipes to store grease that accumulates after being washed down the drain. Commercial grease traps are used in businesses like restaurants, bakeries and such places as hotel kitchens, or wherever the use of extensive cooking facilities operates.

Building up over time, these oil and fatty particles create clogging and blocking of the pipes and grease trap. A large in-ground grease trap needs cleaning by a contractor who can dispose of grease and debris. In some cases, you would be able to clean and dispose of the grease at your local dump. Other than doing it yourself, the alternative is to call a grease trap cleaning contractor.

If your sink is clogged or slow in draining, it is possible the grease trap needs to be cleaned. Grease trap chemicals are not recommended in that case as they liquefy the grease only temporarily solving the problem, not eliminating the grease but causing it to harden and create more clogging and blockage.

Grease traps should be cleaned regularly to prevent drain clogging or blocking of sink pipes. Sometimes a grease trap smells bad, and because this interceptor is used as a filter for oils and fats, these substances can build up, and the trap will need cleaning.


Grease trap cleaning professionals would be able to solve the problem. The grease trap cleaning professionals will begin by carefully removing the cover of the grease trap that is located under the sink in the S section of the pipe, making sure not to damage the gasket. Then the layer of grease and scum is removed, disposing of it in garbage bags to be taken later to the dump. The baffles will then be removed; these should be cleaned and rinsed before replacing them carefully. Once the waste and residue from the strainer are removed, they will then clean the bypass vent and put everything back together.

With small quantities of grease, you can take them to the local dump yourself. Bacteria additives can help prevent the build up of grease trap waste as certain bacteria can break down the waste reducing the number of cleanups required. Chemical compounds for cleaning a grease trap is not recommended as over time these can corrode the pipes.

With large grease traps, disposal and clean up should always be carried out by a grease trap cleaning professional.
