11/10/2013 | Why Garbage Chute Cleaning Should be an Essential Part of House Cleaning Following Holiday Celebrations
Diwali is a huge 5-day Hindu festival taking place between mid-October and mid-November featuring fireworks and family celebrations with traditional activities performed in the home. Holidays like these are a wonderful way to celebrate and spend time with close family and friends, but what happens when the party ends and there is a huge mess to clean up?
One of the down sides to big parties is that with all of the food involved, they can also bring out the bugs and nasty aromas in all sorts of places, including the garbage disposal. Debris that is left behind creates an ideal breeding ground for all kinds of pests, making garbage chute cleaning an essential factor in post-celebration clean up.
Chutes that are neglected can not only create an unpleasant odor, it can be hazardous to the health of residents. Regular garbage chute cleaning can help improve air quality and reduce odors by removing mold, bacteria and other substances that can linger inside the chute.
If left neglected, garbage chutes can even create serious problems in any type of structure, including grease fires, pest infestations, rancid food odors and excessive wear and tear of the disposal and chute that can cause it to fail.
Keep in mind that disturbing smells are not only unpleasant, they can be dangerous.
The U.S Environmental Protection Agency reports that poor indoor air quality can potentially cause a number of health problems like dizziness, headaches and fatigue as well as eye, nose, and throat irritation. Long-term health conditions may also develop after years of exposure to harmful toxins in the air. Garbage chutes are considered a form of air pollution, but by utilizing regular garbage chute cleaning this helps to eliminate the source of bacteria as well as the odor, ridding the home or structure of a significant source of pollution.
Companies like Assured Environments offer quality chute cleaning services to remove this worry off the already long list that many home and business owners already have.
