Dear valued customers, partners & friends. We want you to know that in compliance with all orders and guidelines, all operations are performing fully staffed. Our priority remains the health and safety of our employees, clients, suppliers, fellow contractors and the public. 

Keeping a building safe and healthy is of key importance not just for property, but also to prevent strain to our overburdened emergency services as noted in the latest NFPA issued guidance for life safety systems, regardless of occupancy status.

While communities are rightly focused on dealing with the pandemic, we cannot put additional strain to our overburdened emergency response capabilities, by not ensuring buildings are protected with the very equipment that saves lives and property. First responders rely on commercial and multi-occupancy residential buildings in their communities to have a full array of fire and life safety systems such as working fire detection, alarms, and sprinkler systems.

Those responsible for these buildings should adhere to the expected schedules for inspection, testing, and maintenance that are vital to their operation. If they are unable to do so, they should contact their local authority having jurisdiction. If you require an emergency, service, repair, or cleaning and sanitizing, please contact us today. It is important to keep your building healthy and clean, and all chutes and compactors fully functional.

Trash Chute Cleaning, Repair,
and Odor Control

The Chute Doctor services and repairs more chutes in the Western United States than anyone else.

If your building is in Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, Central California, or Arizona, the Doctor is your answer for trash chute cleaning, repair, and odor control. (We also travel further on request - please call.)

Let’s face it, trash chutes don’t get treated with a lot of care. People open the chute intake doors, stuff their stuff in, and hopefully shut the doors again. If using them is an unpleasant experience, if they smell, for instance, people tend to treat them worse.

A common complaint about trash chutes is odor. But odor is only a symptom. It means that all sorts of nasties are living in your chute, smelling it up and potentially causing sick building syndrome.

Chute intake and discharge doors that don’t function properly or close all the way are also a serious fire hazard.

That is why regular cleaning and trash chute repair is so important. Find out about our trash chute cleaning, odor control and maintenance services and get a FREE instant online quote. With regular service, you won't have to worry about whether your trash chutes are in good repair and helping to keep your building safe and healthy.
