Allergy free houses

My husband and I have really busy lives and often don't have time to clean the house. Unfortunately, both our kids have quite bad allergies to dust and mould, which means we need to keep the house spotless, which can be quite hard. We have started having a professional cleaning service come in a few times a week to give the house a good scrub while we are at work. It means that we can come home to a clean house. It means everyone is healthier, happier and less stressed out. This blog is for other parents of kids with allergies and has tips on how you can keep your house allergen free.

The Importance Of Keeping Garbage Chutes Clean

by Clarence Shelton

Garbage chutes are a very important feature for offices, tower blocks and other residential and commercial buildings. Not only do garbage chutes provide a convenient means of waste disposal for people living and working at high levels, but they also ensure that waste can be directed to different points around the building so that it can be easily collected and disposed of at ground level. However, the height and design of garbage chutes can often make them difficult to maintain and keep clean, and this can result in these chutes presenting a hazard to health and safety. 

Common Problems With Garbage Chutes

When garbage chutes are in constant use, they have to cope with massive amounts of waste each and every day. This waste, especially food waste, can start to accumulate on the walls of the chute, and this could lead to blockages over time. This can also cause bacteria and unpleasant odours to form which could, in turn, be a risk to health and could encourage a pest infestation. 

There are many benefits to cleaning garbage chutes, including:

  • Cleaning reduces the occurrence of blockages
  • Unpleasant odours are eliminated
  • Hygiene standards are improved and maintained
  • The risk of pests is greatly reduced

How Is Garbage Chute Cleaning Carried Out?

The cleaning of garbage chutes can be tricky due to the nature of their design and the distances they travel from top to bottom. The good news is that a professional cleaning company has the equipment and cleaning products that will get to every area and leave the chute clean, clear and able to do its job. The task involves passing a special rod down the chute with a cleaning pad attached. This is soaked regularly with a disinfectant to ensure all germs are removed. Some companies attach a camera to the cleaning rod so that they can see any problems and measure the progress of the cleaning task. 

In addition to the cleaning of garbage chutes, cleaning companies may also offer services that cater for bins and any other area where rubbish is stored. The result is a refuse system that works efficiently, doesn't block or impede the flow of waste and which ensures all areas are clear of bacteria and are left smelling and looking fresh and clean. Why not arrange for the cleaning of your garbage chutes today and see what a difference a professional service can make?
