FAQs about blocked grease traps

For grease trap repairs and maintenance, there is no set pricing. Before any skilled plumber can provide an estimate, a few factors must be researched and ensured. The cost of the service would be determined by the type of grease trap, the severity of the problem, and the location. It is recommended to contact us for a thorough consultation and fair-market grease trap cleaning prices.

Technically, a grease trap is a plumbing device, and it is advised to call a professional plumber for any plumbing repairs and issues. When you notice a problem with your grease trap, it’s the best time to call a licensed plumber.

It is critical to get your grease trap cleaned out every three months, especially if you have a commercial grease trap. We recommend scheduling regular service at least twice a year for a residential grease trap. A skilled grease trap cleaning service will be able to adequately clean all types of grease traps while also preventing any potential complications. You can attempt cleaning your grease trap yourself once in a while as a house or company owner, but a skilled plumber will be able to clean even the trickiest areas of it, ensuring a thorough clean.

Please don’t do that. A blocked grease trap would indicate that there were problems with its components or that it had suffered from wear and tear. If an unskilled individual attempts to clean a clogged grease trap, they may jeopardise the grease trap’s structural integrity. In order to receive skilled plumbing services and repairs, it is best to contact us immediately.

Failure to maintain your grease traps can lead to the following outcomes:


The first issue you’ll face if you neglect your grease traps is clogging. Dirt, food waste, oils, solid grease, and other waste materials accumulate in grease traps. And blocked drains can’t run a kitchen.

Clogging is not only an annoyance, but it can also interrupt commercial kitchen operations. This means missed revenue and no business for days while you fix the issue.


The health and safety of individuals who work and dine in your restaurant are also jeopardised. Your food and utensils may become contaminated if you continue to use unclean grease traps.

This puts your clients in jeopardy as well as your continuous kitchen operation. Contaminated food might cost you a lot of customers or even get you sued and shut down. Customer dissatisfaction and reputation damage will be tough to repair.

Fire Risks

Cooking grease is combustible by nature. Grease is easy to ignite, quickly spreads and is difficult to extinguish. In a busy commercial kitchen, excess grease deposits are the last thing you want.

In general, a grease trap clog can result in significant losses as compared to a well-maintained and grease-free kitchen. That is why it is critical to keep your drains and grease traps clean for fire safety.


Grease blockage in pipelines can also stink. They are caused by garbage, food particles, dirty water, oils, and grease. These odours can be overpowering, unpleasant, and a sign of poor hygiene. This not only makes your employees unhappy, but it also scares away customers.

Of course, foul odours can draw health inspectors’ attention. Your restaurant may be closed for health and safety concerns.
