      Grease Trap Service – Cleaning Your Trap

      Grease trap service options range from installation to maintenance and repair. However, you can ensure that you don’t need the latter two services regularly by cleaning your grease interceptor and making certain it continues to work effectively. For more information, read on.

      We are going to take you through a step-by-step guide regarding how to clean your grease trap effectively. The first thing you need to do is carefully remove the lid of the grease trap, ensuring that you do not damage the gasket in the process. You can do this by turning the fasteners counter-clockwise. Make sure you clean and inspect the gasket. You may need to replace it if necessary. Next, observe the way that the internal parts have been installed. This is important because it ensures that you reinstall them correctly once you have finished cleaning. Next, start to remove the contents from the grease trap until it is empty. To clean the interior of the trap, you should not use soaps, degreasers or hot water. Instead, make certain that the water moves throughout the unit by scraping the inside of the screens, baffles and walls. Inspect the condition of the baffle, tank and all removable parts. If repairs or replacements are needed, you will need to schedule them with a company that provides drainage solutions. Next, clean and re-install the gasket, and reposition the lid on the tank. Make sure all hold-downs and screws are in place and tightened. Finally, make sure there is enough absorbent material within the bag so that all of the excess liquids are soaked up effectively.
