Benefits of Professional Grease Trap Cleaning vs. DIY

March 17, 2020

Cleaning your grease trap is a necessary (and unpleasant) part of running a commercial or industrial kitchen, and you might be tempted to do it yourself to save money. However, professional grease trap cleaning in New Orleans, LA is safe, affordable and will guarantee the job is done right the first time. While you can DIY, you may have trouble doing an effective job and safely disposing of the used cooking oil and grease when you’re done.

Here are a few reasons to hire a professional to clean your grease trap:

  • Stay compliant with regulations: Most cities have regulations stating exactly when and how you need to clean your grease traps. That’s because, when left unchecked, the grease and oil that collects can turn rancid and affect the health of your kitchen, employees and wastewater. In fact, some municipalities and health departments impose fines on non-compliant kitchens, so make sure you know the health codes and schedule regular grease trap cleanings so you won’t get any nasty surprises.
  • Keep your plumbing clog-free: This one’s a no-brainer—when your grease trap gets overfull, your plumbing will start to back up. Scheduling regular grease trap cleanings ensures that you never have to shut down your kitchen to address clogged sinks that are backing up with cooking waste, losing time, money and manpower.
  • Get it done right the first time: You can DIY if you want, but why? Grease trap cleaning is messy (and kind of gross), and if you’re not experienced in the process, you might miss important steps or warning signs of plumbing issues. Hiring a professional ensures that the job will be done by someone with years of experience in the task—in our case, we have over two decades of experience in emptying grease traps.
  • Save your employees the hassle: Keeping your workers happy and healthy is a good way to ensure they’ll do their best job for you. Part of that includes not forcing kitchen workers to perform plumbing tasks like this one, or work in a kitchen that jeopardizes their health and safety. Plus, everyone appreciates a boss or business owner who lets them focus on what they do best, whether that’s cook and serve food, wash dishes or offer customer service—and who lets the team at Safeway Used Oil and Grease take care of the dirty work.

You already have enough on your plate, so why not let a professional take over this particular task? Hiring a pro will ensure your kitchen continues to run seamlessly.
