Is it time for grease trap cleaning in your business?

Grease trap cleaning in Essex from Ashwaste Environmental

If you are a business owner or manager, you probably know all too well how important it is to maintain a clean and sanitary environment for your employees, customers, and visitors. One often-overlooked aspect of this responsibility is the proper maintenance of your grease trap. Grease traps are essential for preventing grease, oil, and other contaminants from entering your plumbing system and causing blockages and backups. However, if not properly cleaned and maintained, they can quickly become a major headache.

Here are the indications that it’s time to schedule a grease trap cleaning in Essex:

  • Slow drains – If you notice that your sinks, floor drains, or other plumbing fixtures are draining slowly, it could be a sign that your grease trap is getting clogged with accumulated grease and needs cleaning. Slow drains are often one of the early warning signs of a grease trap that requires attention.
  • Foul odours – Grease traps that are overdue for cleaning can emit unpleasant odors. The build-up of fats, oils, and grease in the grease trap can produce foul smells that can permeate your establishment, causing discomfort to your staff and customers. If you notice persistent odors around your kitchen or in other areas of your business, it may be time for grease trap cleaning in Essex.
  • Increased grease discharge – If you notice an increase in grease discharge from your grease trap into the plumbing system or sewer, it’s a clear indication that your grease trap is not functioning properly and needs cleaning. Grease should be captured and retained in the grease trap, and any excess discharge could indicate that the trap is full and needs attention.


It’s important to pay attention to the signs that indicate it’s time for grease trap cleaning in your business. Regular and timely grease trap cleaning in Essex by Ashwaste Environmental will help you prevent plumbing problems and maintain a clean and safe working environment for your staff and customers.
