Thorough degreasing, disinfecting and deodorizing of all chute walls and chute doors. Our proprietary steam power wash machine leaves chutes sparkling clean.
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 throughout the building.
What is the Assured Process?
Pre-Soak. Using a de-greaser, 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.
