Grease traps are required for kitchen sinks, dishwashers, disposals, and any floor drain that might funnel fats, oils, and grease (FOG) into the wastewater stream.

Why Grease Trap Cleaning is Required

Grease traps help to prevent grease and solids from contaminating the water supply. Due to improperly filtered wastewater, FOG waste can build up in drainage systems and sewers. If not cleaned regularly, grease and sediment can build up over time, clogging the water exit or forcing it into the city sewer system. This may result in poor drainage systems and may even back up if the grease trap in Sydney is not cleaned properly. 

Apart from simply being unhygienic, grease backup can also lead to the presence of unpleasant odours. When a drain becomes clogged with grease, it may be necessary to treat it manually at the source of the problem. Repairing this can be time-consuming and expensive.

If the grease trap is not adequately pumped out, it can also cause the following issues:

Damages Caused by Disposal:

Sulfuric acid is created in the tank when grease traps hold food waste for an extended period of time. It is possible for this chemical to damage the tank if it is not cleaned out regularly.

Cleaning Becomes More Difficult as Time Passes:

The longer you wait to clear up a grease trap Sydney, the more difficult it will become. Food waste can be especially difficult to remove from the tank since it can solidify and attach to the tank’s surfaces.
