Trash Chute and Garbage Compactor Cleaning for the Greater Chicago Area

Let Quality Pressure Washing help to ensure the health and safety of your building and its tenants by keeping your trash chutes clean and restoring your garbage compactor.

Trash chutes are the perfect breeding ground for bacteria, disease causing organisms, and may attract insects, rodents, and odors that can spread throughout your building. Improper disposal into trash chutes by your tenants may result in flammable materials adhering to the sides of your trash chute.

Eliminate odors, protect your building, and extend the life of your trash chutes with routine cleaning.

Why Clean Trash Chutes & Garbage Compactors?

Trash chute and compactor rooms are not often thought of when it comes to routine maintenance in a building. However, just like a chimney, garbage or trash chutes have an up-draft. This can force unhealthy odors, nasty smells and air-borne 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.

Trash Chutes should be cleaned at least every four to six months. Some of the major benefits of routine cleaning include:

  • Prolong the longevity of your chute and compactor

  • Improved air quality

  • Reduce mold, bacteria, viruses, and other harmful pathogens from building up

  • Prevent pest infestation

  • Avoid fire hazards

Our Process

We first treat the interior surfaces of the chute with a biodegradable enzyme to help de-grease and loosen buildup. We then circle back with a 230+ degree water pressure washing system to flush the contaminants and odors down the chute utilizing a special tool for chute maintenance. This service focuses on reducing odors, killing insects and microorganisms, as well as cleaning and degreasing the surface of the chute.

EPA Registered Cleaning Solutions

Our EPA Registered, Biodegradable cleaning solution is a highly effective cleaner against pathogenic fungus and mold and can be used to clean multiple services. It also helps to mitigate the future build up of insects, mold, and bacterial infections. An application of the solution provides a protective layer to the walls to the trash chute helping to reduce the risk of viral or bacterial contaminations between servicing dates.

Advanced Cleaning Tools

We used advanced tools and equipment specifically designed to clean ducts, trash chutes, vents, restaurant hoods, tanks, and more. Trash chute cleaning is an intricate process requiring planning and precision. The advanced tools that we have invested in allow us to deliver superior quality work and an efficient delivery of service.
