A locally owned and operated company, we’ve been proudly serving the area for years, and there’s no job too big for our team of talented technicians.
Even if you’re a committed do it yourselfer, cleaning your grease trap is almost certainly not something you want to try doing on your own. If you’ve ever done it, you already understand why. In terms of dirty, disgusting jobs, there’s not much that can surpass it. Expect it to take you the better part of a day and utterly ruin whatever clothing you’re wearing when you do it. Even protective gear won’t last long. It’s that disgusting.
We’ve got years of experience though, and the equipment to get the job done quickly and professionally. Where Leesburg VA grease tank cleaning is concerned, here are a few general recommendations to keep in mind:
The 1/4th Rule – This isn’t a hard and fast rule, but it does serve as a good general guideline. Keep an eye on your grease trap and if it’s more than one quarter filled with fats, oils, grease and solids, then it’s time to have it pumped out.
It’s important, however, to keep local laws firmly fixed in your mind. If the law says clean the trap every 90 days, do that, regardless of whether you’ve met the ¼ threshold.
Employee Education Matters – You’ll have to avail yourself of our Leesburg VA grease tank cleaning service less often if you make sure your employees are up to speed on grease trap do’s and don’ts. Here are a few things to be sure they’re aware of:
- Make sure your employees are scaping plates! This is a lot more important than most employees realize and if they’re not doing it, you’re going to have to pay to have your trap cleaned out a lot more often than you otherwise would.
- Recycle your waste cooking oil. Anything you keep out of the trap means less that has to ultimately be pumped back out.
- Make sure that if you have a garbage disposal unit, it’s not connected to the trap. Again, the goal here is to limit the amount of solids that enter it in the first place.
Finally, be mindful of your grease trap interceptors. These should be cleaned on a weekly basis as they have a much smaller capacity than the trap itself and are likely to be the source of trouble if you’re not keeping a close eye on them.
