Considering Trash Chutes – Maintenance And Sanitation

By Ben Pate

Garbage chutes can be just gross. If you’ve ever lived in an apartment building or have ever worked in a tall office, you’ve probably had experiences with the garbage chute. Opening that latch releases a plume of disgusting smelling air that’s enough to make you gag. It’s easy to see why. Think of all the stuff that gets thrown away by any one person at an apartment or a business. Rotting food, personal care items, sanitary products, diapers, and things that have been sitting in a garbage can for who knows how long. Now multiply all this garbage by a building full of tenants. Now multiply this number times the weeks, months, or years that have passed since the last chute cleaning. The unsanitary opportunities are endless.

There are all kinds of undesirable viruses, bacteria, and even insects all living in the grease and grime that covers the interior walls of garbage chutes. Do you know the last time your garbage chute was cleaned? Some chutes never get cleaned. When someone opens the latch to the chute, there’s a lot of stagnant air being released into the area. Aside from the terrible smell, all the aforementioned harmful organisms are getting inhaled by the tenants, which is a major risk to their health.

A proper trash chute cleaning is not hard to get. Companies like Nasco International have made huge strides in the cleaning business, offering environmentally safe, carcinogen and solvent free products and services that ensure that those counting on you – whether it’s dozens of families or just one – can breathe and live healthy in their homes. Garbage chute cleaning is just one of these services.

Basically, Nasco lowers a cable down from the highest trash chute, seals the other chutes, and uses the hottest water to dislodge grime, food, and other build-up from the walls of the trash chute. This water is combined with a biodegradable, safe detergent that further breaks down food and grime. Next is the rinse cycle. More water is sprayed on the walls, except at a lower pressure. This cycle removes the dislodged build-up that has been blasted by the detergent. Finally, sanitizer and a deodorant are used to protect against more build-up and the smell for weeks.

Nasco has become a very successful cleaning company just through this specialized process. They keep both the people and their environment in mind while formulating revolutionary new products and cleaning systems that reduce anyone and everyone’s indoor air pollution exposure. Nasco chooses to destroy the grease, grime, food, bacteria, and dirt that are the source, instead of throwing a bunch of harsh chemicals with harsher smells on top of what’s already there.

It’s no challenge to understand that many businesses and individuals have gone to Nasco for their trash chute cleaning needs. They had no problem establishing a solid path to success just by revolutionizing the commercial garbage chute cleaning industry.
