Grease trap cleaning is not something you should be shopping for in the bargain bin. A good grease trap cleaning partner should not just be someone you trust, but someone with years of experience and knowledge under their belt. After all, whether you are looking for someone for your restaurant, commercial kitchen or other food processing facility, a healthy grease trap means healthy operations.
Consider the True Worth of Your Grease Trap
Before getting into the cost breakdowns, first consider what your grease trap is worth. Not “worth” as in the monetary value – although that is its own incentive – but what it is worth to your business. Can you risk not having it in working order? Can you risk the costs of the drain repairs if the cleaning isn’t done well? Finally, can you shoulder the legal burden you’re your local municipalities if the job is not performed up to code?
These are all things to think about when shopping for an environmental services partner to come clean your grease trap. Be wary of companies offering deep discounts or suspiciously low prices, as the quality of their work is likely subpar. Remember, poor grease trap maintenance (even when you have a ‘professional’ company help you), can wreak havoc on your business / facility.
Depends on a Variety of Factors
The cost of quality grease trap cleaning services varies depending on the condition and location of your grease trap. Of course, the companies you might explore as your grease trap cleaning partner will also have varied pricing.
The cost will also depend on how well your grease trap is maintained, as neglected units will require more work to bring up to standard. The accumulation of FOG materials (fats, oils, grease) is also taken into consideration when pricing a grease trap cleaning service. The average cost for an indoor grease trap in good condition (meaning it has been regularly maintained) can range from $175 to $475. If your facility’s grease trap has not been maintained properly, the price can so much as triple for the pumping and cleaning service.
Choose a Trusted Grease Trap Cleaning Partner
While cost is absolutely a factor to consider when shopping for grease trap cleaning services, it should not be the determining factor. Depending on the quality of services you are after – or the quality of service your facility requires due to the size, production, etc. – you might end up spending more than the average for better quality service.
