Grease Trap Cleaning in Northwest Indiana

Don’t let poor grease trap maintenance spoil your bottom line.

It might seem as though lessening the frequency with which you clean your grease trap could be a way to scale back operations cost. That’s incorrect. It’ll be more expensive for you in the long run.

The longer fats, oils and greases are allowed to accumulate in your grease traps, the tougher they become for a technician to remove. Tougher cleaning leads to more hours on the job.

Buildup of fats, oils and grease in your trap can also reduce the efficiency of the trap itself and have an impact on your kitchen’s overall plumbing – even impacting the performance of other appliances. That’s more wasted money.

Infrequent cleaning also runs the risk of increased grease trap cleaning cost, poor performance from your whole kitchen, and possibly even fines for health code violations.

Schedule grease trap maintenance regularly with the dependable experts at Almighty Plumbing, and save yourself a pile of cash in the long run.

Avoid unwanted smells and keep pests away.

Restaurant owners know that even underground grease traps won’t go unnoticed by customers if the traps are poorly maintained. Those fats, oils and greases that accumulate in the grease trap over time will eventually begin to break down and decompose, and the resulting smell is impossible for customers and employees to ignore.

What’s worse than an unpleasant smell? The things that are attracted to unpleasant smells. Insects and rodents are every kitchen’s nightmare, and dealing with them only adds another line item to the budget.

At Almighty Plumbing, we’ve worked with restaurants, hotels and other commercial businesses throughout Chicagoland and northwest Indiana to provide full-service commercial plumbing for more than 50 years. We know grease traps inside and out – whether that’s preventing these smells or getting you back to normal even if it’s been a bit too long since your last cleaning.

Keep grease out of the sewers.

Let’s look at the bigger picture beyond your own restaurant or commercial kitchen. Did you know past studies from the Environmental Protection Agency estimate that a single commercial kitchen can produce as much as 17,000 pounds of grease waste in a year?

Poorly maintained grease traps can lead to sewer blockages that can result in sanitary sewer overflows. That’s harmful to a lot more than just your kitchen.

Almighty Plumbing has decades of experience working with restaurants and commercial kitchens, helping them keep our communities’ sewers and public water supply clean and safe. Work with our experts, and be a part of the solution!

Frequently Asked Questions about grease trap service

Why is grease trap cleaning so important?

For starters, the Indiana State Department of Health mandates the use and frequent cleaning of grease traps for all restaurants and commercial kitchens. Grease traps and grease interceptors keep fats, oils and grease from seeping into the sewer system and causing blockages in our public water supply.

Moreover, regular grease trap cleaning prevents rancid smells for your customers and prevents buildup that can ruin the efficiency of your kitchen’s other appliances. Grease trap cleaning cost pales in comparison to the possible costs of ignoring the need for service

How often should I have grease trap cleaning performed?

That depends on many factors. How many grease traps is your kitchen using? How large are they? When was the last cleaning? What is the make and the model of your grease traps? How heavily are your grease traps used?

The best way to determine how frequently you need grease trap service is to contact the experts at Almighty Plumbing and provide details on your specific situation. Our experts can not only perform any required grease trap service but can help you plan for the future to keep things running smoothly.

Don’t wait for grease buildup to cost you thousands.

Neglecting your grease trap can lead to a host of problems that far outweigh the actual grease trap cleaning cost. Whether it’s a foul smell, an attack from unwanted pests, fines for health code violations or any number of other negative consequences, the price could leave a business reeling.

I used Almighty Rooter to clean out the Catch Basin using a high powered vacuum trunk to remove the grease and sediment. I viewed the entire process from start to finish and was amazed how the high pressure of the technique of vacuuming broke up the materials in the catch basin. The cost of vacuuming was higher cost than using a shovel and bucket however well worth it.

The gentlemen who came to my home to unclog my kitchen drain were professional, on-time and quite knowledgeable. They were so efficient that my husband and I hired them at the homes of our respective parents. My mom in particular had a leak that was impacting a neighbor - again they were timely and efficient. Unfortunately the leak has returned but after several calls to Almighty, they have not returned. And I really like this group - having been a home owner for 20 years I know good service and I had hoped to be able to continue using them. Now, I have to find another plumbing company. Hope they are as good as this company.
