If you own or manage a family restaurant, nursing home, bar, cafeteria, deli, soup kitchen, or other food service establishment, you are probably aware of the importance of your kitchen’s grease trap.

Why does my grease trap need to get cleaned?
All commercial – and many non-commercial – kitchens come with a grease trap installed in their main drain pipe. Its mission is to “trap” and hold on to fats, oils, and grease (also known as FOGs) that are mixed in with your kitchen’s waste water and stop them from reaching the sewer.
When FOGs get washed down the drain in large amounts, they cause huge problems throughout your and NYC’s sewerage lines. The FOGs thicken up and harden, resulting in –
- Hard-to-clear blockages
- A foul-smelling drainage system
- Backed-up pipes deep below the ground
- Sewer overflows
It is for this very reason that food establishments in NYC are required by law to get rid of their FOGs in a permitted fashion – via a grease trap.
But what many don’t realize is that their grease traps and interceptors need regular pumping and cleaning to keep them working efficiently. As these units collect food scraps and FOGs from your kitchen’s waste water, the busier your kitchen, the more quickly your grease trap gets full. And a full grease trap means that it can’t catch any more FOGs, leaving you in danger of blocked pipes, an overflowing plumbing system, and expensive plumbing bills.
