Grease Trap Services in Buffalo, NY

There are plenty of restaurants and food preparation services in Buffalo, NY, and all of them face one common problem: excessive grease getting poured down the drain. It’s a risk in any business that serves food, which is why every restaurant and commercial kitchen in the area needs a grease trap to effectively deal with the problems. That requires the right service not only to install it, but to keep it clean and repair it when problems arise.

The friendly pros at Roy's Plumbing, Heating & Cooling have been in business for a long time, and we know the ins and outs of grease traps. If you’re building a new restaurant and need one installed, we’ll be there. If you have an existing one that needs servicing or repair, our team is on the job. And if you need an existing system replaced because it’s too small for your growing needs, we’ll be on hand from the very first step. We serve businesses throughout the Buffalo, NY area, so let us take the worry away!

How Do Grease Traps Work?

Fats, oils and grease (or FOG as they are collectively referred to by plumbers) rank among the most troublesome foodstuffs to dispose of properly. They’re often poured down the drain while hot, in liquid form. But these materials will solidify quickly when they cool, and create a big mess in the pipes. In residential homes, you can simply pour the hot liquid into a can, then throw it away when it cools, but restaurants rarely have the time or the manpower for such precision.

While you should limit the amount of food and debris that moves down a commercial drain, grease traps do the rest of the job for you. They separate FOG – which is often lighter than water – from the waste water itself, holding it in a tank while the water flows safely to our Buffalo, NY sewer system. That keeps your pipes from becoming clogged and allows you to continue running your operations without a hitch. Trust our trained team to handle grease trap installation for your property the right way.

Servicing Means Maintenance as Well as Repairs

A problem with your grease trap can bring your operation screeching to a halt, which is why our repair services for grease traps always move fast and get the job done quickly. But we also know that an ounce of prevention beats a pound of cure in many cases.

Your grease trap needs to be cleaned out on a regular basis lest the FOG build up, and periodic maintenance is necessary to spot the signs of serious trouble before they get started. Our team is ready to go when you are with regular grease trap servicing, helping your business get back to its customers and taking your worry away.

Grease Trap Problems Can’t Wait

In a residential home, families can often sit tight and wait for a few days before a plumber can arrive. Restaurants have no such luxuries and a delay of even a few hours caused by a grease trap problem can be devastating to the bottom line—not to mention a huge health hazard.

That’s why our team can move swiftly to any location in the greater Buffalo, NY area, and why we offer emergency services 24/7 both to deal with the problem quickly and to stay out of the way of your customers and staff!
