GREASE TRAP CLEANING SERVICES
Grease Trap Cleaning in Melbourne, Florida
What is a Grease Trap and Why Does it Need Cleaning?
A grease trap collects and traps all of the waste coming from a restaurant’s kitchen to ensure the only thing flowing to the city sewer is water. All of the water from the kitchen will flow into this grease trap, including all of the floor drains and sinks.
The size of the restaurant will determine how often the grease trap will need to be cleaned. It is recommended, for larger restaurants with a heavier flow of people and more fried foods, to get the grease trap pumped every 1-2 months. For smaller restaurants or establishments without a fryer, it could be done every 4-6 months.
Not pumping your grease trap will cause a buildup of grease in your lines and start to back up in your kitchen (sinks and floor drains).

TALES from the TANK
A collection of true stories that have occurred when the septic tank did not get the proper attention.
*DISCLAIMER* Yucky stories and photos below!
"WAITED TOO LONG"
Stacy called because she had sewage backing up into her showers. Upon inspection, we found a clog in one of the pipes, causing the septic system to fail. The clog was due to grease and detergent being put down the drain and accumulating since the was the last time it had been pumped years ago.

"THE HOUSE OF 5 WOMEN"
John is a husband and father of 4 daughters and called us in a panic because he was experiencing back-ups in their toilets. When our team went out for inspection, they opened up the septic tank lid and hundreds of cotton balls and loads of toilet paper started spilling out of the top, causing it to spread all over the yard. John’s lovely wife and daughters had been throwing their cotton balls and extra toilet paper down the toilet over the last 4 years, and it built up and helped clog up their septic system.

"BABY WIPES, GROWN-UP PROBLEMS"
Joe had a system that kept backing up even though the system had already been redone within the past 2 years. There was major clogging in the filter due to baby wipes being flushed down the toilet(s) from renters over the course of 2 years.

"THAT'S NOT WHAT THAT'S FOR"
An older couple contacted because they couldn’t understand why they were having sewage backing up in their home. At first, it was believed that the drain field was bad, however, after the tank had been fully pumped by our team, it was discovered there were hundreds of condoms clogging the pipes so badly the water couldn’t get out into the drain field.

Grease Trap Cleaning MADE EASY FORM
Called at 8PM on a Wednesday night with Septic concerns, they were out at 12:30 the next day (only a half hour into their four hour window) and were finished in less than an hour. Very reasonably priced considering the prompt service. Thanks!
