Assured has developed a comprehensive trash chute cleaning and maintenance program designed to meet your businesses budget objectives. We deliver a turnkey service utilizing our specialized teams of certified technicians.
Why Clean Trash Chutes?
Safety - Tenants discard unsuitable items into trash chutes. Some items are flammable (paints, thinners, etc.) while others adhere to the sides of the chute.
Odors - Everyone is concerned with odors that emanate from trash chutes and permeate the hallways and stairwells of buildings, leading to complaints.
Health - Many of the items found in trash chutes contain organic waste ingredients, a perfect breeding ground for bacteria and disease-causing organisms to thrive and spread.
What is the Assured Process?
Pre-Soak - Using a degreaser, we pre-soak the chute system, floor by floor, to loosen both inorganic and organic debris and soften the materials which may have adhered to the chute walls.
Power Wash - We steam power wash (at +210 degrees) the entire chute system, using Assured’s AE9002 Microbe-CleanerTM, a powerful disinfectant formulated with premium natural, scum-eating, odor-eliminating microbes that contains no harsh chemicals or odors.
Deodorizing - We apply an enzyme treatment to the chute that feeds on bacteria and other residue, and then the system receives a comprehensive deodorizer.
Benefits of Trash Chute Cleaning:
- Utilizes proprietary 210 degree steam and hot water treatment
- Eliminates odors, germs and disease
- Abolishes a major breeding ground for vermin, roaches and rodents
- Includes a powder-dusting of chutes and compactors with insecticides by a licensed exterminator

How Often Should Trash Chutes Be Cleaned?
We recommend that trash chutes be cleaned twice a year, summer and winter, especially before and after major holidays.
