We clean grease traps for Whangarei and Northland businesses like cafes, restaurants, canteens, hotels, bars, takeout shops, and any other place where food is prepared for sale.

It is very important to get rid of used fats and oils in the right way. If you don't, they could cost you a lot of money in the future. Fats will turn into solids and eventually clog your pipes, which will need to be fixed by a plumber.

Grease traps come in many different styles. Each has its own needs for installation and upkeep.

Most of the time, these are outside your building. Since they are in the ground, metal plates are often used to cover them. Passive grease traps work by cooling the waste water, which makes the fats and oils rise to the top. Food scraps and other solids sink to the bottom of the grease trap.

The solids at the bottom of the grease trap and the fat on top of it need to be cleaned out often. To do this, the whole trap's contents are sucked up.

After the grease trap has been cleaned, it needs to be filled with cold water so it can be used again. The trap should be cleaned often. Once a month is usually enough, but it depends on what kind of business you have and how much fat is going into the grease trap.

Grease traps are an important part of any commercial kitchen, and if they aren't cleaned and checked regularly, they will stop working and bring everything to a halt.

What Does It Do?

Grease traps filter out the oil and grease that always ends up in kitchen waste water. This keeps the oil and grease from going down the drain and clogging up the sewer pipes. All of this waste that gets stuck needs to be taken out on a regular basis. If it isn't, the fat will harden and stop water from getting through. Drainage may then stop working at all, which can bring in rodents and other pests, make the kitchen area dirty, and even cause the kitchen to flood in some cases. All of this could lead to lost business, fines, and health risks for the kitchen staff.

All of this can be easily avoided, though, if grease traps are kept clean and well-maintained. Not only do you need to get rid of the trash, but you also need an experienced service person who can make sure your grease trap is working right and tell you how often it needs to be fixed.

Our Experience

Whangarei Grease Trap Cleaning have been cleaning grease traps for more than 15 years and can help with this.

We know about all kinds of grease traps and can tell you if you need a new one if your current one looks like it's been working too hard. We can also set up a regular cleaning and maintenance service based on how often your grease trap needs to be cleaned. This will save you the trouble of having to remember and make bookings over and over again. Depending on how often you use it, this should be done every 6 to 12 months.

Maintaining a clean and efficient grease trap is crucial whether you're a homeowner or run a business with a commercial kitchen in Whangarei. Regular grease trap cleaning is not just essential for efficient kitchen operations, but it's also a vital component of adhering to health, safety, and environmental regulations. As the leading provider of grease trap cleaning services in Whangarei, Whangarei Drainage is committed to ensuring your home or business runs smoothly and in compliance with all standards.

The Importance of Grease Trap Cleaning

A grease trap is a critical component of any kitchen's plumbing system. It's designed to trap fats, oils, and grease (collectively known as FOG) from wastewater, preventing them from entering the municipal sewer system.

Whether in a home or business setting, neglecting the cleaning of your grease trap can lead to unpleasant odours, blocked drains, and serious backups. Over time, accumulated FOG hardens and reduces the efficiency of the grease trap, potentially causing costly damage. Also, local health and safety regulations mandate regular grease trap maintenance, making it a must-do task for both homeowners and businesses.
