Grease trap pumping and cleaning in Knoxville, Tennessee

What exactly does grease trap pumping include? There’s a grease trap set up in commercial kitchens, which is responsible for cutting off the oil and grease from running into the wastewater in kitchens. This prevents oil and grease from getting into the sewer lines, which can cause a whole other world of troubles you want to avoid. Baffles collect the grease, which will sit atop the water in the grease trap. Over time, however, when the levels of grease become too high in the grease trap, it can cause a possible flame, fire, or smoke threat in your kitchen in Knoxville, TN. This is when grease trap cleaning and pumping services in Knoxville have to be performed.

Cleaning and frequency in Knoxville, Tennessee

There’s no single answer as to how often you should have the grease trap professionally cleaned by a commercial service provider in Knoxville, Tennessee. For most restaurants, you should consider hiring a Knoxville grease trap pumping and cleaning expert every 2 to 4 months. However, if you have a busier restaurant in Knoxville, you might want to do so more frequently. The type of grease trap that is installed will also dictate how frequently it should be cleaned. Some of the most popular systems are

  • Automatic oil and grease cleaning systems (these automatically flush, but should still be professionally cleaned for optimal safety)
  • Pre-cast grease trap inceptors
  • Hydro-mechanical inceptor systems

Depending on which of these are installed in your restaurant in Knoxville, the frequency at which you choose to have professional Knoxville grease trap pumping, and cleaning services will vary for each commercial business. The more often you want to have professional cleaning services in Knoxville, the less buildup that will occur in the grease trap, and the higher the efficiency at which your kitchen in Knoxville is going to operate safely.

Why Clean the System so often?

If 2 to 4 months seems frequent, think about this. You’re cooking with high heat, fire, you have employees in the kitchen, bacterial buildup, and other elements come into play. Not only does the kitchen get dirty, but the longer you wait to have the grease traps in Knoxville cleaned and pumped, the worst food is going to taste. Your customers in Knoxville are going to complain of food tasting like burnt grease if they aren’t well maintained and cleaned regularly. Plus, you are putting your employees in Knoxville in a dangerous work environment, and your business is also at stake.

The more frequently you maintain and clean the system in Knoxville, the easier it will be for a professional in Knoxville to do the job during each visit. So, over time, it will also help to reduce the overall pricing you are going to pay for professional commercial cleaning services in Knoxville, Tennessee. Although it seems like a lot, it is better to be safe with commercial facilities and the dangerous grease, oil, and fire threats, which can ensue if the grease traps are not properly cleaned and maintained as regularly as they should be.

If it has been more than a few months since you’ve had professional Knoxville grease trap pumping and cleaning services, or you want to have an assessment of your grease trap system performed, don’t hesitate to give us a call and speak to our specialist in Knoxville, TN. Our team in Knoxville, TN, at Hero Services is here to perform a visit to your property and an inspection of your kitchen in Knoxville, TN.

Pumping FAQs

No. Unless your whole system is traffic rated, parts of it will not be able to support the weight of a vehicle. If a portion of your system gets crushed, failure may occur.

We do not recommend using any acid-based drain openers. Many of them contain a fair amount of sulfuric or muriatic acid, which can accelerate acid damage to your tank.

When used in moderation, most cleaning chemicals are okay, but high concentrations or excessive amounts of bleach or detergent can stunt or eliminate the anaerobic bacterial action that keeps your system flowing.

Most residential septic systems were designed to handle 1.5 persons per bedroom. So, if you have a three bedroom home, your system was designed to handle no more than 4.5 persons. In this situation, housing 9 or 10 people would not be wise as you would risk overwhelming your system.

Your system is not intended to be support a laundromat. In fact, you probably shouldn’t do more than a couple loads of laundry a day. We recommend that you spread your laundry throughout the week so that you do not have to do it all in one day. Most washing machines use 70 to 100 gallons of water per load of laundry. (High efficiency, front loading washing machines are an exception as they only use 15-35 gallons per load.) Brand new, your system can only get rid of 350 gallons per day or less. Don’t test it; it isn’t worth it.
