Grease Trap Maintenance

Proper grease trap maintenance, both interior and exterior, is a must if your establishment uses oil or grease in food preparation. All grease traps need periodic pumping & maintenance in order to prevent your pipes from backing up.

Properly maintaining your grease trap will prevent blockages in your drains and lines. Grease buildup and blockage can create a sewer backup situation and ultimately a health hazard in your establishment. Let the professionals at J & D Environmental set you up on a grease trap maintenance plan. All grease traps should be cleaned at least two times per year. Some establishments need pumping up to two times per month. If your establishment needs grease trap pumping and cleaning too often, consider having J & D Environmental install a larger grease trap or interceptor for you.

Keeping your grease trap in good working order will keep you in business. Our grease trap pumping and maintenance program helps eliminate unforeseen problems and costly emergency pumping services.

J & D Environmental will help you establish the correct schedule for your preventive maintenance program.

J & D Environmental also has confined space equipment and grease blasting services for exterior grease trap maintenance.

Sewer & Drain Cleaning Service

Let J & D Environmental’s professional service technicians keep your drains flowing freely. Backups and blockages often occur because of poor housekeeping and improper or inadequate drain line and grease trap maintenance.

A grease trap or drain line that is not periodically maintained will eventually clog up causing your floor drains and sinks to overflow. This can cause a disruption of service or worse, yet a facility shutdown. It is important to understand how the drain system and waste water removal in your facility works.

These systems typically include grease traps or grease interceptors, clean outs and of course your drain lines. Grease traps do just that, they trap grease and cooking oils generated during food preparation and prevent most of this grease from escaping through your drain lines and into the sewer system. J & D Environmental can clean your drains and sewer lines when it becomes necessary using power snaking and high pressure water jetting techniques. Please contact us to have our professional technicians resolve any backups or blockages and to prepare a preventive maintenance program designed to your specific needs.

We use the least invasive methods we can to free your blocked drain or sewer pipe. Once the cause has been determined, we can use one of several methods to clear the blockage, all of which are environmentally friendly.


Septic Systems Service

A septic tank is an underground sewage-collection system. The tank itself is a watertight container constructed of a sound, durable material resistant to corrosion or decay.

A septic tank works by accumulating solids in the tank, sometimes referred to as sludge. This is done by holding wastewater in the tank for at least 24 hours. The scum rises to the top and drains into a leach field and the solids settle to the bottom. Over time some of the solids decompose and some remain. As you use your septic system, the sludge will accumulate in the tank. Septic tanks usually have enough space for up to three years of safe accumulation. Once the sludge has reached this level the separation of sludge and scum no longer takes place and sewage may overflow. Overflow can be prevented by periodic pumping of the accumulated sludge.

J & D Environmental suggests checking your septic system annually for leaks and levels of sludge. We are a licensed pumping contractor and will pump your septic tank at a very competitive rate.

High Pressure Jetting

J & D Environmental technicians can employ power snaking and high-pressure water jetting to clear clogged sewer lines and drains.

Water is used to clear stubborn blockages and to remove debris such as grease that has become built up on the insides of your pipes.

To solve these problems the J & D Environmental technicians use water that is pressurized by one of our truck-mounted pumps. The water flushes the debris from your system using special heads attached to flexible high-pressure hoses.

Our technician is able to adjust the pump pressure and the angle of the cleaning jets to safely complete the job. For more information, please call the number below.
