Stinky chutes are often an indication that the chute is out of code. Avoid complaints from both the building inspector and tenants by mitigating odors caused by misfitment and grime.
Ideally, on any given floor on the chute column, the odor should not be detectable unless the trash chute intake door is open. Detectable trash odor outside an intake door indicates that the seal on the door is broken and should be replaced.
Odor originating in the trash room should be sent up through the chute column and out the stack on the roof via appropriately provided natural or power ventilation. Ideally, this odor should be tolerable.
Things that make your chute stink:
Dirty chutes are avoidable by maintaining capacity at the compactor or dumpster, and giving it a proper, regularly scheduled High Pressure Steam Blast™ cleaning. We recommend all customers opt for regularly scheduled Space Foam Antimicrobial Odor Control™ applications between cleanings.
We'll make that chute like new. We are a full-service chute company – whether you need cleaning or inpection, call us today for a consultation.
