Why Cleaning Your Chutes Is So Critical?
Cleaning Trash Chutes Improves Air Quality
Just like a chimney, garbage or trash chutes have an up-draft This can force unhealthy odors, nasty smells and air-bourne bacteria from inside the garbage chute walls to be wafted back into the building. These airborne pathogens and odors will spread into the communal areas as residents open the garbage chute doors in order to dispose of their trash. By a process of osmosis, they will find a way into private areas as well creating a putrid atmosphere.
Cleaner Chutes For Bacteria Control
When building tenants discard their trash into a garbage chute, Disposal bags contain all manner of waste, including leftover bacteria-ridden food. As all Maintenance personnel knows, garage bags have a tendency to open and can rip easily. As this often happens, the wet trash can stick to the inner walls of the chute and the dry garbage will stick to the wet garbage providing an optimum place pests such as mice, rats, maggots or roaches.
Clear Garbage Chuted Prevent Fires
It is almost impossible to prevent grease from spilling onto the edges of your trash chute. What you can do, though, is invest in trash chute cleaning.
