We offer grease trap and catch basin cleaning services to restaurants, hotels, and fast food outlets. We understand the grease trap system and know how to keep waste water moving.


Large amounts of oil from food preparation in restaurants and fast food outlets can overwhelm a waste water treatment facility, causing the release of untreated water and sewage into the environment. Cooking grease and other fats can combine with disposed materials to block pipes. Grease traps can reduce the amount of oils, fats, and greases that enter the sewer lines. A restaurant should have grease traps cleaned at least once in three months. If you own or operate a commercial kitchen or restaurant that is particularly busy, you should consider having your grease traps cleaned and serviced frequently.


Our experienced service people can take care of any grease trap cleaning problems efficiently. Count on us for grease trap cleaning services in your food preparation facility. Our staff will work with you to schedule a service that is convenient for you and your customers. Call us today for catch basin and grease trap cleaning services in Whitehorse, surrounding areas of the Yukon and northern BC.

How Do You Keep a Grease Trap from Smelling?

Usually, grease trap cleaning is done through the pump and return method. Although the FOG materials (fats, oils, greases, and soils) are removed and taken away, the grey water is returned to the grease trap. This is done so that the grease trap is never allowed to be dry completely. However, if a dry pumping method is used and the trap is dry after cleaning, the smell might arise from the gases formed in a dry environment.


One of the best suggestions to prevent odours from your trap is to start running water so the smell dissipates as and when the water fills up. You can also mix baking soda along with water and pour it down the drain to eliminate the odours. Give us a call today to learn more about our services.
