Terminix Canada’s garbage chute cleaning makes waste removal safe, and easy on the environment. Eliminate pest breeding grounds and protect tenants too.

Fix Trash Problems With Our Garbage Chute Cleaning

Garbage chute cleaning is something that many apartment buildings, office buildings and other commercial sites neglect. This creates a risky environment for tenants. When building tenants discard their stinky garbage into a garbage chute, bags regularly open or rip. The end result is wet and stinky garbage sticking to the inner walls of the chute. Ultimately, these conditions don’t only cause odour problems but create breeding sites for cockroaches, flies and rats too.

Why You Need This Terminix Canada Service

Garbage chutes have a naturally occurring updraft that is similar to a chimney. In short, this produces airborne odours and bacteria from inside the refuse chute walls. These airborne pathogens and odours then enter public areas as tenants open the chute doors and dispose of their garbage. If you’re in charge of an apartment building, office building or another commercial site, ensure tenants’ health and safety by scheduling a visit from the Terminix Canada team. Please note, this service should be used in conjunction with Terminix Canada’s effective odour control solutions.

      Wow, did we have a raccoon problem! Unbeknownst to us a raccoon family was living in our attic. We knew that it was some form of wildlife that was creating the crazy … read more noises that was preventing us from sleeping but had no idea that the culprits were relentless raccoons. Thanks to Adam’s experience in the field and his persistent actions, the raccoon family exited the house. It was not an easy process and took many logical and creative tries. Adam is a skilled problem solver with a wide range of skills in the construction field that make him particularly adept at this type of job. With the assistance of Marshal, he got rid of the raccoons. Both Adam and Marshal are to be commended for being both persistent and positive during this challenging time for our family. The raccoon noises were disrupting our entire household and we were exhausted. A huge thank you to Terminix and particularly to Adam and Marshal for helping us enjoy our home again. I would highly recommend the work done by Adam and Marshal. Terminix is fortunate to employ such skilled professionals.
