Seattle WA Grease Trap Services

Seattle is Washington’s largest city and one of the most sought-after destinations in the Pacific Northwest. From its thriving arts and culture communities to its professional sports teams (Seahawks and the Sounders) to the surrounding natural beauty, it’s not difficult to see why. Seattle is brimming with different activities and opportunities for recreation. There are multiple museums, including MoPOP and the Museum of Flight. There are also plenty of shops and restaurants to explore at Pike’s Place Market. There really is no shortage of things to do in Seattle!

Seattle has long been the state leader in promoting environmentally conscious and sustainable practices amongst its businesses. This is especially true in regards to the maintenance of Grease Traps and disposal of Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOG). West Coast Grease Traps has been proudly providing Grease Trap repair and maintenance solutions for the businesses of Seattle since 2011. We work directly with business owners to create a custom-tailored maintenance plan, keeping your business compliant with the Seattle Municipal Code and allowing your establishment’s Grease Traps to continue operating without interruption!


Grease Trap Cleaning in Seattle

SMC 21.16.310 A requires the installation and regular maintenance of Grease Traps in ALL commercial kitchens in the City of Seattle. If a Grease Trap goes too long without being fully cleaned, FOG will be discharged into local sewer systems. This can obstruct sewage and drainage lines, resulting in backups, toxic fumes, and severe penalties from the city.

West Coast Grease Traps provides in-depth cleaning for all interior and exterior Grease Traps, fully pumping and removing FOG and solid waste from the tank. On top of that, we transport and dispose of all waste material at a state-approved bio-recycling facility!

Grease Traps endure a lot of wear and tear. Irregular maintenance or use of improper cleaning tools and chemicals can cause significant damage to your Grease Trap, compromising its functionality.

West Coast Grease Traps is fully equipped and licensed to repair both interior Hydromechanical Grease Interceptors (HGIs) and exterior Gravity Grease Interceptors (GGIs). If a Grease Trap is beyond repair, we are also able to install and set up all above ground Grease Traps for your Seattle business!
