To emphasize, you need Cincinnati’s full-service restaurant plumber.

Grease trap cleaning and repair
It’s essential for restaurants to have their grease trap and tank serviced regularly so fats, oils and grease don’t clog the pipes, which can lead to a serious problem (and a potentially costly repair). That’s why Allied Reddi-Rooter offers grease trap cleaning for restaurants, dining facilities, and anywhere else there’s a working commercial kitchen.
When we clean your grease traps, we not only scrape build up from the trap, we also perform an extensive inspection to ensure every aspect of your grease trap is working properly. We also update the service log, so you stay in good status with the health department.
If you suspect that the water is dirty (anywhere in your restaurant) it’s important to contact a plumbing professional. Allied Reddi-Rooter offers backflow cleaning to make sure there’s no water returning to your pipes which can lead to an unsanitary situation. We can also replace your backflow preventer; a mechanical valve that prevents backflow in the first place.
Think about it: restaurant faucets have a big job to do. Not only are they used throughout service in the kitchen to cook food and clean dishes, but they’re used at the bars, service stations, and in the bathrooms. These specialized faucets require equally specialized, professional care on a regular basis.
We recommend having your restaurant plumbing’s faucet system inspected at least once a year, and in the event that one should need immediate repair, we offer emergency service to keep your business running smoothly.
Restaurant drains to triple duty. Not only must they support sinks, dishwashers, and appliances, but they are in constant use, and should they clog, it can wreak serous havoc on your business, especially during a busy time.
We recommend having your drains serviced on a regular basis. At that time, we can inspect the pipes, sinks, and make any necessary repairs. Additionally, we encourage restaurant owners to take advantage of our high-definition drain and sewer line cameras to inspect your building’s plumbing. Learn more.
Sewer line inspection
Restaurants generate a lot of solid waste – from food to grease to wastewater. That’s why the sewer line needs to be maintained by a plumbing professional who can ensure that the line is working properly so that it doesn’t affect your business (as well as others in the building).
Allied Reddi-Rooter is proud to offer restaurant sewer line video inspection, considered the gold standard when it comes to sewer line assessment.
Gas line inspection
When you have an issue with your gas line it’s imperative to get it repaired immediately. Waiting to take care of it isn’t just expensive, it can be downright dangerous. Learn more.

Restaurants aren’t the only businesses that require grease trap cleaning and pumping. In fact, grease trap pumping is a must for any business that has a kitchen, and that includes schools, nursing homes and assisted living communities, as well as catering businesses and sports venues. If you’re cooking in a facility that feeds lots of people, at some point you’re going to need your grease trap pumped. And we can help.
Allied Reddi-Rooter is Cincinnati’s grease trap pumping specialist. It’s a service we provide almost daily to local businesses to ensure their kitchens are optimally clean and sanitary. And this, in turn, helps the Cincinnati community stay healthy, so grease doesn’t get trapped in sewer lines and contaminate water.
Why is grease trap pumping important?
Your grease trap has an important job to do. It stops oil and grease from getting into the wastewater that flows through the sewer lines. If the grease trap isn’t working effectively, grease and oil will build up in your kitchen’s pipes and cause serious clogs.
A grease trap, which every professional kitchen should have, catches grease via a series of “baffles.” And these traps have to be cleaned at least every three months. If your grease trap is more than 1/4th full of grease and oil, it’s time for the grease trap to be pumped.
How grease trap pumping works
We begin by pumping the grease and oil from the trap into the tank of an Allied Reddi-Rooter truck. Then, we apply a high pressure wash to remove any excess grease that is still left in the trap.
After the grease trap is clean, we take the truck back to our facility, where the collected grease and oil are processed using a polymer. Then, once in a more solid state, it is filtered through screens. The dry waste that remains is thrown away and the remaining water is safe enough to be released as wastewater.
Tips to keep you grease trap cleaner
Make sure to dry wipe your pots and pans. You’ll want to keep them free of any residual grease that can remain after you give them a rinse and before you put them in a dishwasher. Make sure to do the same with your plates and utensils.
Dispose of cooking safely. In the U.S., we generate 2.5 billion gallons of used cooking oil a year, and it’s important to dispose of it safely. This can be done by chilling the grease in a sealable container and throwing it away with your regular garbage.
Remember to clean your grease traps every four weeks, and clean them before or after business hours so that your customers don’t have to put up with the smell.
