Grease Trap Cleaning in Durango

Let Professionals Retrieve & Deposit Your Grease

When clean and in good condition, grease traps are highly successful at trapping oil, grease, sludge, and solid matters before they enter drain lines. However, if left untreated for too long, a grease trap can become clogged and create drainage issues. This is especially problematic in commercial drain lines, where they are needed to filter out an increased amount of greasy waste. The sewer lines and drainage systems of establishments such as restaurants and hotels are kept in working order by grease traps depositing fatty oils and solid sludge into a catching system. Without regular upkeep, the grease will get backed up, spill over, and major problems will ensue.

At Mountain Septic, we strongly recommend having your grease trap routinely cleaned. Unfortunately, very few individuals have the knowledge, tools, or capacity to clean grease traps themselves. Luckily, our professional technicians are happy to take care of this tedious and dirty task so you don’t have to. With high-grade equipment and best-in-class techniques, we will ensure your underground sewage lines remain well-maintained and fully functional. We will also dispose of all grease we collect at designated processing facilities per local regulations.

Signs You Need Grease Trap Cleaning

If you own a commercial establishment, you’ve more than likely dealt with a grease trap issue. This is never good. An inadequately maintained grease trap can cause:

  • Foul odors
  • Clogged pipes and drains
  • Increased risk of fire
  • Health code violations
  • Lost revenue due to mandatory closure
  • High repair costs due to defective grease traps

To avoid these issues, we stress regular maintenance. Most industry experts suggest cleaning grease traps more often than you may think – every three months.

Four telltale signs that usually indicate that a grease trap needs immediate attention:

  1. Your sink, tub, or toilet drainage is moving very slowly
  2. The solids and grease in your grease trap are more than 25% of the wastewater depth
  3. Unexplainable odors are stinking up your building, even after you’ve inspected other possible causes
  4. Grease is getting into water lines

    Mountain Septic Can Routinely Clean Your Grease Trap

    As fats, oils, and greases accumulate in a grease trap, they solidify over time – stiffening at the top and forming a dense cap. When a grease trap is blocked up, various plumbing functions will be severely interrupted. You may even notice grease coming out of faucets or water lines as the overflow of buildup seeps into pipes. This is why the EPA mandates that any grease trap over 25% full be cleaned for public health and safety.

    Professional grease trap cleaning services are almost always easy and affordable if performed before the grease surpasses the 25% mark. By proactively maintaining your grease trap, you will avoid putting your employees, family, and/or customers’ health at risk. If you are a business, you will also avoid being shut down by local health officials, thus bolstering your reputation and revenue stream.

    The message is simple – cleaning your grease trap before sludge accumulates will save you from later complications.
