Grease Trap FAQ

How do grease traps work?

A grease trap is just that - an entrapment of grease. When residual FOGS are emptied into the plumbing system, the grease trap allows the water to sink to the bottom and drain into the city sewer system. The floating grease remains at the top for removal.

How often should grease traps be cleaned?

The frequency of restaurant grease trap cleanings vary with how often the kitchen produces FOGS. On average, cleaning are performed every one to three months. Regular scheduled services are best to avoid missed cleanings.

What are best practices to Maintain grease traps?

Scrape all food waste from plates, utensils, pots, and pans prior to loading them into the sink for washing. Utilize sink drain covers to reduce food particles from entering the drain. Do not empty grease into the sink, as the grease will solidify while traveling down the drain. Schedule regular cleanings and inspections by Tidy Services.
