Grease Pit and Trap Cleaning

Keeping Calgary Drains Clear with Grease Pit 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.

Know When to Clean Your Grease Pit

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.
