Grease Trap Cleaning

The sewer reticulation system is designed to accept toilet waste and sink/ basin/ bath waste; whilst the storm water drainage system is geared to accept only rainwater. Anything else has a negative impact on the system and ultimately causes blockages, therefore the cleaning and maintaining your Fat Trap is of high importance.

Drain Blasters offers a professional, socially responsible and price effective solution as a leader in grease trap cleaning across Cape Town and the Western Cape. Our grease trap cleaning services are systematic, discreet and environmentally friendly.

Why is Grease Trap Cleaning So Important?

A sewer system is not made to handle materials such as grease. Presence of fat, oil and grease in waste water burdens the treatment plant. Animal fats, for example, can cause certain reactions in sewage lines, thereby contributing to sewer pipe blockages. The blockages can cause sewer overflows, a major public health hazard that requires purpose-built equipment, manpower and time to clear. Only a company that offers professional grease trap cleaning services can best tackle the issue by providing prompt regular service.

Grease traps keep food and grease in kitchen wastewater, such as animal fats and vegetable oils, out of the sewer. Without these traps, sewer lines can clog with grease and cause backups. Grease traps are especially important to keep functioning well if you run a restaurant or business that relies heavily on the use of a kitchen. The bad odour will be problematic as well as the kitchen inability to function correctly.

Drain Blasters thoroughly pumps your grease trap, ridding your business of odours and safety hazards. Our experienced technicians do more than just skim the trap or leave hardened deposits. Rather, they clean the entire trap and scrape away any and all hardened grease. Our thorough cleaning process means that there won’t be an accumulation of old grease, your workspace will be odour-free, and you’ll need your grease trap cleaned less often.

Restaurant and Commercial Kitchen Grease Trap Maintenance & Cleaning Services Cape Town

The best way to protect your commercial kitchen’s grease trap and ensure that it’s doing its job keeping food and grease out of the sewer is through regularly scheduled grease trap cleaning.

Grease trap cleaning is essential for preventing grease build up and odours around your work place. In order for a grease trap to work efficiently, it is necessary to have a reliable company that can assist with the proper tools, chemicals and regular maintenance schedule. Restaurants have much greater quantities of grease waste than the average homes; therefore, cleaning the grease traps is required more often.

While it is highly-important to perform maintenance work and cleaning on grease traps frequently, it depends on how often and how much grease goes through the grease trap interceptor as to exactly how often it should be cleaned. The objective is to keep the grease trap as clean as possible on a regular basis by removing the oil residue and disinfecting the grease trap with an antibacterial solution.
