Garbage chute cleaning is something that many apartment buildings, office buildings, and other commercial sites neglect, creating a risky environment for tenants. When building tenants discard their stinky garbage into a garbage chute, bags regularly open or rip. This results in wet, stinky garbage sticking to the inner walls, and dry garbage sticking to the wet garbage, creating breeding sites for cockroaches, flies, and odour problems.
Additionally, a garbage chute has a naturally occurring updraft (similar to a chimney) that produces airborne odours and bacteria from inside the refuse chute walls. These airborne pathogens and odours then enter public areas as tenants open the chute doors and dispose of their garbage.
Terminix Canada can help eliminate all of the above with one of our most popular odour control solutions – our Garbage Chute Cleaning service. We will treat each chute using a specialized foaming agent. The foam we distribute expands inside the chute, allowing the product to fill every crack and crevice.
Garbage chute cleaning should be used in conjunction with Terminix Canada’s effective odour control solutions.
