Grease Trap Services


Grease Trap Cleaning Services

Grease traps are no place to cut corners, especially when you’re choosing a service provider. Improper grease trap cleaning, pumping, and maintenance can create huge problems for your business, potentially causing closure or heavy fines due to blockages, overflows, or environmental damage.

All commercial kitchens face regulations that dictate how grease is handled and for good reason. Left unchecked, fats, oils, and grease (FOG) that enter sewage systems can plug drain lines, block pipes, and eventually clog the region’s sewers or cause other serious issues. Grease traps protect waterways by significantly reducing the amount of FOG that enters water treatment systems, and they are required by law. EcoZero’s professional grease trap services keep your traps in peak condition so you can focus on your business without worrying about regulatory problems.

Why Do Grease Traps Need Maintenance?

Failing to properly maintain your grease trap can cause major issues. Here’s a list of problems you might encounter: 

  • PLUGGED DRAIN LINES, AND BLOCKES PIPES : Over time, solidified grease within a pipe can create blockages that cause a lot of problems, from kitchen back-ups to burst pipes and environmental pollution.
  • FOUL STENCH : Rancid FOG gives off unpleasant fumes that could be harmful to anyone near the source – including you, your employees, or your customers.
  • CLOGGED SEWERS : Grease build-up in sewers causes them to overflow, potentially damaging homes, businesses, and the environment. Removing grease from sewers costs Metro Vancouver residents at least $2 million every year.
  • PENALTIES : Violating grease disposal regulations can lead to fines, which create a heavy financial burden in addition to damaging your reputation.

We retain complete service records which are always available to you. In the case of an audit by regulatory authorities, you will have immediate access to all service records at the touch of a button.
