truck removing grease

As a business owner, grease trap cleaning and maintenance are your responsibility. If you overlook regular cleaning, you could face some costly challenges. Luckily, you don’t have to clean your grease trap yourself. Oregon Oils Inc. is committed to prompt, professional grease trap cleaning for restaurants or any business that uses cooking oil or grease throughout our service areas in Oregon and Western Washington. We can pump and clean your grease trap and identify minor issues before they become major problems.

Avoid Regulatory Fines

Grease poured down sinks in commercial kitchens can enter the municipal water system, which can lead to clogged sewers and significant fines from regulatory authorities. Also, once the grease trap becomes full of fat, oil and grease (FOG), the waste takes a long time to break down and decompose, leading to a stinky and potentially toxic mess. Rancid grease traps that aren’t functioning correctly may also be subject to Health Department fines and may require your business to shut down until the problem is resolved.

Provide Safe, Odor-Free Environments

Foul odors from dirty grease traps can seep inside your restaurant. This stench may start in the kitchen but eventually makes its way throughout your building, including the dining area. This smell affects your employees’ work environment and can cause customers to seek other eating establishments. Prolonged exposure to this smell, which could become toxic, may make employees and patrons ill and cause unexpected shutdowns or lawsuits.

Prevent Unnecessary Costs

Like almost everything, the longer you wait to clean your grease trap, the more difficult it can be. Prolonged periods of stagnant waste sitting in your grease trap can become a breeding ground for bacteria. FOG and food waste mixed with water can create sulfuric acid, which can damage the construction materials of your trap, even if it’s made of concrete or steel. Allowing us to regularly pump out and clean your grease trap helps ensure you won’t pay for costly repairs.
