Frequently Asked Questions of Grease Trap Cleaning in Lehigh Acres

Grease traps allow wastewater containing FOG to flow through a receptacle before entering a drainage network. The FOG can be intercepted or “trapped” by the receptacle while still allowing water to escape.

Grease traps have existed for more than 100 years and are also called grease interceptors or converters, catchers or grease recovery/management equipment, and FOG traps.

In order to prevent sewage blockages, almost every commercial kitchen must have a grease trap. Grease traps deal with oils, fats, and greases (FOG), produced during cooking, baking/frying, washing, or other culinary operations.

  • Clogged or slow-moving drainage: Environmental Solutions says grease traps often block drains and require regular maintenance.
  • Foul-scented kitchen: A bad odor in the kitchen that persists after thorough cleaning is probably a sign that your grease trap needs cleaning.

Considering the possibility of errors at stake, hiring a professional to clean your grease trap is advised instead of trying to do it yourself.
