Grease Pit and Trap Cleaning
Many Calgary businesses need grease pit cleaning to keep solids from building up in their sewer lines and eventually entering the city drain systems. If your food service or other industry releases solids from your grease pit, you need to ensure that it is cleaned regularly to reduce the potential for a costly back up and clean up.
Before you lose money to unnecessary penalties, call The Drain Doctor for commercial grease pit cleaning services. A sure sign of grease pit trouble is when your drains back up frequently.
To properly diagnose the problem, we recommend a visual inspection of the pit. We can also help determine how frequently the pit needs cleaning based on your plant’s production.

Running a busy kitchen in any restaurant or food service requires a lot of maintenance in addition to the all-important food preparation. The grease trap is one of the most important areas to be cleaned. All Calgary commercial kitchens require clean, working grease traps to keep grease from dishwashers and sinks out of the drain lines.
So what is the problem? NOT ALL GREASE TRAPS ARE CLEANED PROPERLY! The Drain Doctor technicians know from experience that an improperly maintained grease trap will fail very quickly, causing backups that can cost your business time and money. We provide 24-hour services.
How important is it to install a grease trap?
Local authorities necessitate the use of a grease trap to prevent oil and fat from getting into the main sewer system.
How does a grease trap function?
A grease trap holds on to hot greasy water until it cools down. The grease then separates and floats on top of the trap.
When to clean your grease trap?
Some of the signs include:
Pest infestation around your drain
Grease flowing back into the sink, indicating the trap is full
Unusual smell coming from your drain
