Grease Trap Cleaning

Grease Trap Cleaning for Calgary Food Services

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 cleaning jobs. All commercial kitchens require clean, working grease traps to keep grease from dishwashers and sinks out of the drain lines. If you are worried about clogged grease traps, contact The Drain Doctor™. Whether you are a hotel, chain restaurant, or small business, we can help with efficient grease trap cleaning services in Calgary.

Signs that Your Grease Trap Needs Cleaning

Before you lose money to unnecessary penalties, call The Drain Doctor™ for commercial grease trap cleaning services. A sure sign of grease pit trouble is when your drains back up frequently. You can also look out for some of these telling signs:

  • Pest infestation around your drain
  • Grease flowing back into the sink, indicating the trap is full
  • Slow draining
  • Unusual smell coming from your drain

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. For information and to schedule service, call our 24/7 answering service and speak to one of our professionals.

Recommended Maintenance & Preventative Services
