Keeping Restaurants Cooking in New York & New Jersey

When the dinner rush starts, you want your kitchen to run like a well-oiled machine. A clean grease trap ensures your plumbing and wastewater disposal works as it should. Clogs and backups can be detrimental not just to your pipes, but to your business.

When you need grease trap cleaning, the last thing you want to do is have a plumbing truck outside where your customers can see. That’s why Zuidema Septic Service performs round-the-clock grease trap cleaning and maintenance for your restaurant.

Grease Trap in NY & NJ

What Is a Grease Trap?

Grease traps are used in kitchens across the country and act as a container for water, scraps, grease, and incidental trash coming down the kitchen drains before heading to the sewers. The goal of a grease trap is to allow the easy separation of grease from water and other substances. This is because grease clogs and damages pipes. Since grease floats on the water’s surface, the trap keeps it from flowing into the sewers. Solid food and other objects settle at the bottom and aren’t taken away with the water.

Unfortunately, these traps can only hold so much grease before they need to be cleaned. Grease traps need regular cleaning so your restaurant (and sewer system) run smoothly. Zuidema Septic Service performs affordable grease trap cleaning for restaurants in New York and New Jersey.

How Zuidema Septic Service Cleans Grease Traps

When your grease trap reaches its limit, it must be pumped correctly and quickly. Putting it off until the last minute is a surefire way to get backups, clogs, and more expensive repairs. Zuidema Septic Service has helped restaurants in New York and New Jersey pump their grease traps for more than 100 years. We perform efficient and affordable cleaning services so you can dispose of waste properly.

When we visit your restaurant, we perform an enzyme treatment that helps break down grime and harmful bacteria in your grease trap. High-pressure hydro jetting is one of the ways we ensure the pipes in your grease trap is clear. We may also recommend a new container if your grease trap is old and not working properly.

Our team uses environmentally-friendly tools and machines to pump the grease and water out of your grease trap. Our goal is to leave your restaurant in better shape than we found it, so you can get back to making customers happy.
