Chute cleaning is an integral part of any chute system and our chute cleaning services ensure the entire chute, including the doors are free from built up waste residues.

Using environmentally friendly detergents containing sanitisers, enzymes and deodorisers which leave a pleasant aroma and further eliminates bad odour creating bacteria. The removal of built up waste will also alleviate annoying pests and vermin, and food grease build up which could become a potential fire hazard.

Once the chute lining has been cleaned, our service specialists clean the doors, compaction equipment and waste room, leaving you with a clean and more hygienic system. Providing customers with a cleaning schedule at monthly, quarterly, 6 monthly or yearly frequencies, we can ensure your system is clean and sanitary all year round.

Bad odours and nuisance smells can plague the atmosphere and potentially make the living environment unbearable.

Applying stringent cleaning techniques and air sterilisation methods, our system will leave your building smelling fresh.

Chute blockages can result in tenants leaving waste on the ground and around the chute doors and in corridors, causing unpleasant sights, hazards, and bad smells. This can also lead to unsanitary conditions which attracts insects and vermin.

With our team of skilled and qualified chute specialists on hand, coupled with the right tools to do the job, no blockage is too difficult. Whilst using onsite staff to clear blockages seems like the easy option, this can often result in extensive repair costs from damage caused by inexperienced personnel and can void your warranties.

Don’t take the risk and get the job done right the first time to keep your chute system flowing seamlessly.

The safety of residents and occupants in multi storey developments is of paramount importance, as such regular inspection of essential fire safety measures is critical. Chute system doors, also referred to as self-closing hoppers are classified as an essential measure and it is recommended that these are regularly inspected for fire safety and compliance.

We can attend to inspect and certify chute doors as either a standalone or one off service or incorporate this service into a scheduled maintenance package. This will ensure that the chute system is operating as designed and intended, further ensuring building managers, owners and body corporates are meeting regulatory and safety obligations and giving you peace of mind.

As electrical waste room equipment is in installed in a hostile environment, we recommend that your equipment is inspected and tested by a competent person at 12 monthly intervals in accordance with AS/NZS 3760 – In-service safety inspection and testing of electrical equipment.
