Grease Trap Cleaning Service
A grease trap is a plumbing recovery device that prevents commercial kitchen oil and solid food waste from entering the city sanitation line to reduce or eliminate sewer sanitation overflows (SSO's) on the city line. Also known as a FOGS (FATS, OILS, GREASE, SOLIDS) gravity device, failing to service this equipment on time can lead to kitchen and plumbing disasters such as drain stoppage overflows that can lead to large fines or store closure. A grease trap is typically found under the sink or in the ground inside the kitchen. Due to its small size ranging from 100 gallons or below, these devices are fully pumped and cleaned every four to six weeks. It is mandatory that these devices are services and cleaned once it reaches 25% FOGS content and the waste must be disposed of by a licensed grease hauler to be in compliant. Once the device is serviced, or the waste is taken away, the waste hauler must provide a manifest report or service receipt as proof for the city or county inspector as a legal disposal record.

Grease Interceptor Pumping - Cleaning Service
Similar functionality of a grease trap, the significant difference between the two devices is its size and effectiveness. With its massive size, grease interceptors (GI) are typically placed outside the premises, such as a parking lot or a parking structure covered with a maintenance hole 24-inch lid. The majority of the time, these are made of precast or fiberglass. An average interceptor size for restaurants can vary from 750 to 5,000, although shared, food processing companies and other large commercial kitchen interceptors can go up to 40,000 gallons. Due to its large size, its effectiveness to trap fats, oils, grease, and solids waste is much more efficient than an indoor grease trap. Most cities make it mandatory for all commercial kitchens to install interceptors rather than inside traps because of their efficiency. When cleaning, all waste inside must be taken out by a particular vacuum truck removing all content from top to bottom. Irregular or lack of service maintenance can lead to costly overflows or blockage, causing major plumbing issues. More...
Grease Trap Repair and Installation
If you are opening or remodeling a food servicing establishment, the city may have already told you that you need to install either a grease trap or grease interceptor. The majority of the cities throughout Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, Ventura, San Diego, and San Bernardino make it mandatory for any food servicing establishments to install either a grease trap or grease interceptor base on their speculations. To determine which type of device necessary for your location, one must go to the city planning or industrial waste department before proceeding with the installation. Every jurisdiction will have different requirements; therefore, you must first check with the establishment's city before putting one into place. We highly recommend hiring a plumbing contractor that has experience with grease interceptor installation. Without the proper knowledge, this can lead to long-term issues such as odor and sanitary plumbing problems. For more information about grease trap and grease interceptor installation and repairs.

Hydro Jet Plumbing ( Water Jetting )Service
Hydro jetting, water jetting, or high-pressure washing of pipeline walls is the most effective way to clean or to thoroughly remove the stubborn build-up residue of grease and debris sticking on the walls of the pipes. Typically, water waste entering into the drain systems contains a mixture of grease and food solids. Overtime mixture of grease and food solid stick on the pipe walls, eventually reducing the radius, which causes it to slow down or clog. Commercial restaurants go through heavy usage in which grease build-up is very common; snaking a line may only be a temporary fix versus hydro jetting. Unlike your regular rooting service or snaking, this procedure uses highly pressurized water of up to 3,500 pounds per square inch (PSI) at 7-10 gallons per minute to ensure that any build-up or obstruction is cleared. We recommend an average-sized restaurant for the main and the branch lines (floor drains, sinks, and cleanouts) to be hydro jetted every 6-12 months.

Spill Clean Up Pressure Washing With Recovery
If your grease trap or interceptor is overflowing or full with grease and wastewater coming out of the top of the covers, immediately stop any water usage inside the kitchen. In this event, be sure to make a barrier preventing the contamination from expanding any further and instantly turn off any running water. Do not use additional water to clean up the spillage, for it can only spread the pollution, making the spill worse. Instead, use absorbents and remove large pieces of grease or solid waste with a proper scooper. In case of a significant hazardous grease waste spill, clean-up may require a professional with suitable equipment such as a pressure washer with a water recovery to prevent the discharge from traveling any further. If you are currently experiencing a significant overflow, contact us at 888-696-9906 for immediate assistance. Learn More...

Be Aware of The Latest On Grease Waste Disposal and Oil Recycling Service
As regulations for disposal for grease trap and grease interceptor waste become more difficult, many companies are no longer offerring them or have closed their doors. It's likely due to the high demand and less supply, it's not uncommon for grease companies to only offer grease trap cleaning services to businesses who use them for oil collection service. Therefore, with recent increase pricing in used cooking oil, many companies have gone away from cleaning grease trap and only offer oil collection service often putting clients into long term contracts. In the long run, this can negatively affect business owners for they may not find or get lower pricing for their grease trap or grease interceptor waste unless they allow the service provider to collect their oil.

Fats, Oils, Grease and Food Solid (FOGs) Best Management Practices
The local ordinance requires food servicing establishments to follow best management practices to ensure that the commercial kitchens do not contaminate the sewer system by releasing fats, oils, grease, and food solid waste originating from the kitchen. To prevent any environmental threat and plumbing issues that cause lead to hazard spillage are a series of activities that effectively manage and control FOGS waste disposal that originate from the kitchen. BMP focuses highly on the following:
Restaurants and other food & beverage establishments are known to generate substantial cooking oil, grease, and food solids, also known as FOGS waste, every day. If not managed or disposed of properly, it can cause significant issues such as sewer sanitation overflows that can impose a hazardous danger to the public. Animal fat, waste cooking oil, and food solids entering the sanitary lines are some of the major causes of sewage back up, so city inspectors are adamant about used cooking oil disposal and grease trap or grease interceptor cleaning.
Grease waste is known to adhere to pipes which can eventually cause it to clog. Sewer blockages or spills are unpleasant and very difficult as well as expensive to clean up. Sewage backups present a health hazard as raw sewage may carry harmful bacteria and pathogens. It is vital to ensure that all fats, oils, grease, and food solid waste from restaurants are appropriately disposed of by a licensed waste hauler at an approved wastewater treatment plant.
Grease Trap & Grease Interceptor Cleaning Service
To prevent citation and or grease trap and interceptor overflow, BMP requires all food servicing establishments to place a preventative maintenance plan protecting the city's sanitary line. All grease recovery devices must be fully pumped out, extracting all FOGS and waste liquid content inside. It's the business's responsibility to ensure that the device's content does not exceed the 25% FOGS to wastewater ratio.
Waste Cooking Oil Disposal
It no circumstance that cooking oil from commercial kitchen deep fryers are to be disposed of down the drain. Used cooking oil or grease waste originating from the kitchen requires an inedible kitchen grease hauler or a grease company with proper equipment and resources to haul, dispose, or recycle the waste. Furthermore, grease collection companies will provide the necessary storage container for the oil to be placed to extract it out carefully and neatly. After the used oil is removed from the restaurant, the grease removal company must provide the necessary document known as a manifest report. The city requires this report as proof that the waste oil is disposed of according to the regulations set by the local ordinance.
Shortage On Grease Trap Cleaners
Shortage of technicians and stricter regulations on waste water treatment plants has cause major halt in the industry. Excessive FOGS content, improper, and lack of cleaning of both grease traps and grease interceptors may see a major increase in initial cleaning cost. Excessive FOGS content inside the grease interceptor exceeding the maximum of 25% allowable as well as FOGS waste stored inside the tank for long periods of time become harder to break down.
With high demands and shortage of service providers, do not be surprised if companies are back logged for weeks.
As if these hurdles were not enough, recently one of the largest animal rendering and grease trap waste treatment facilities in Southern California was ordered by the South Coast Air Quality Management District to stop their operations reported by CBS. Due to this incident, many food servicing establishments are finding themselves having trouble finding service providers for grease trap cleaning and inedible food waste disposal service. The fact that there are not too many rendering and food waste treatment plant in the Southern California, this can be a disaster for the food servicing establishments businesses.
