Impeccable Indoor Air Quality Services
The average person may not be able to describe it, but most can sense when something’s wrong with the air quality inside of a building. It could be a musky odor from a dirty trash chute or the feeling of stale air from an air duct, but they can identify something’s wrong and needs attention.
For a quarter of a century, ChuteMaster has helped property managers freshen up their properties by cleaning air ducts and sanitizing garbage chutes. Our work has helped our clients attract and retain better tenants while improving indoor air quality and reducing risks like toxic mold and fire. We’ve become the right hand for properties across the country, helping them protect their buildings and the people living and working under their roofs.
Foul odors are guaranteed to be noticed by current residents & scare off prospective tenants. Keeping your chutes clean, hopper doors self closing & compactors running keeps tenants happy and safe while protecting you from possible expensive citations. Put your property in the best position to thrive by keeping your garbage chutes up to code, clean and sanitized. ChuteMaster’s custom, thorough approach has made us the leading name in trash chute cleaning, & hopper door maintenance.
Trash & Linen Chutes
Garbage chutes and compactors help keep your properties clean, allowing your tenants to quickly and discreetly toss trash away without having to haul it through your building. But for all the problems they solve, they introduce new challenges, too.
Without routine cleaning, chutes and trash compactors become sources of germs and bacteria. Insects & rodents may also nest in them, creating concerns that cause unpleasant odors and unsanitary conditions. Those foul odors quickly spread to common areas and hallways, creating complaints from entire floors of your existing tenants.
For decades, ChuteMaster has set the industry standard with our patented trash chute and compactor cleaning service. Our reliable techniques wipe out toxins, waste and other nasty surprises that have lodged themselves in your disposal system. We clean your entire system, including hopper doors, chutes and trash compactors with a non-corrosive, biodegradable cleanser of our own design. We also provide similar services for linen chutes.
Chute Doors & Discharge Gates
Trash chutes and compactors can take quite the beating over time. That’s why we repair and replace hopper doors, discharge gates, & garbage chutes. We offer a variety of replacement hopper doors & parts capable of serving everything from apartment buildings to office settings and hospitals.
To stay ahead of mandatory state and local code inspections and potential safety concerns, many of our customers choose to sign up for annual preventative maintenance agreements that may help preserve your system and keep it operating in top form.
Compactors & Dumpsters
ChuteMaster maintains a compactor sales and repair division in most cities we service. We offer the most dependable compactors manufactured as well as a complete line of dumpsters and parts. Our radio dispatched trucks can handle anything from replacing a dumpster wheel to repairing or replacing major compactor components such as power supplies, rams & hydraulic hoses.
We’ve earned an excellent reputation cleaning air ducts in multi-family housing across the US. While central air is one of the greatest conveniences of the modern day, it needs to be maintained just like everything else. Thorough duct cleaning helps prevent mold, mildew, dust, pollen and other contaminants/allergens from invading ducts—and the indoor air of your property.
Apartment buildings rely on exhaust systems and HVAC ducts to keep air circulating through the property. Without them, buildings would become stuffy and unbearable. But these shared links between private living areas and communal spaces need careful attention. HVAC ductwork can be a breeding ground for bacteria and germs which can easily spread throughout the air in your building.
ChuteMaster takes a systematic approach to wiping out these pollutants. Along with sanitizing the vents in individual apartments, our cleaning service targets ducts and risers in communal areas to help make sure problems don’t spread. We also service and maintain the roof fans that power exhaust systems and keep air flowing through your ducts. Keeping these fans in good order gives your system the best chance to prevent fungus and mold spores from blossoming in your vents.
NADCA Certified Air Duct Cleaning
Duct cleaning is a job best left to the experts. Improper cleaning techniques can seriously harm the air quality in your property. Failing to clean your ducts can allow dust, mold and other microbes to fester in your central air system, but an unprofessional air duct cleaner could upset those same pollutants, knocking even more of them into the air you and your tenants breathe.
ChuteMaster operates one of the most respected duct cleaning services in the country. Our business is certified by NADCA, a watchdog of the air duct cleaning industry, and we proudly stand by the track record we’ve developed over nearly three decades. When it comes to experience, the choice is clear: nobody beats ChuteMaster.
Kitchen & Bathroom Vent Cleaning
Multi-family housing provides a unique set of challenges to the indoor environment of the building. Throughout the past fifty years energy conservation has caused buildings to take measures against drafts and air leaks that cause heating and cooling costs to rise. This “sealing in” of the building has created a need for effective exhausting of stale air.
Each home unit shares one common source of air flow with other adjoining units – the building’s exhaust system. Ineffective exhausting of stale air from the building can cause air to linger and mix with the stale air from other apartments in the same exhaust line.
Moisture and bacterial growth (from a bath exhaust line) originating at any point in the line may trigger similar growth in other units. Organic compounds and flammable grease can also spread through common kitchen ducts.
The effective solution to this problem is to promote the efficient exhausting of air from the
building through clear, clean passages. ChuteMaster helps to accomplish this by cleaning
not only at the source (the kitchen or bathroom vent) but by thoroughly cleaning the
common exhaust path and cleaning and servicing the roof fans.
Hallway & Common Room Vent Cleaning
Hallways and common areas, including lobbies, are the true meeting place for all the different environments in your building. Combine the individual odors from all the apartments; mix in the combined smells of cooking and odors emanating from the trash chute and collection areas, and you have an explanation as to why some buildings just don’t smell clean or fresh.
By cleaning the hallway exhaust vent systems and roof fans, our work promotes proper circulation and ventilation in the common areas of your building. Properly cleaning hallway vents can also effectively rid the building of hot, humid air during the summer months. This has a positive effect on both energy consumption as well as resident comfort.
Roof Fan & Riser Cleaning
Roof fans & risers provide the draft to remove stale air from common areas, offensive food odors from kitchens and moisture from bathrooms. When clean and operating properly they improve the air quality in your building and help safeguard your residents. Also don’t forget the potential energy savings! Along with sanitizing the vents in individual apartments, our cleaning service targets ducts and risers in communal areas to help make sure problems don’t spread. We also sell, service and maintain the roof fans that power exhaust systems and keep air flowing through your ducts. Keeping these fans in good order gives your system the best chance to prevent fungus and mold spores from blossoming in your vents.
Each load of laundry your residents wash traps lint in your dryer vents. Over time, this buildup makes your equipment work harder slowing down your drying process, and may become a potential fire hazard. ChuteMaster clears out these ducts and vents, lowering your property’s risk of a dangerous, costly event while improve the efficiency of the dryers.
Dryer Exhaust Cleaning
Clogged or partially blocked dryer vent lines contribute to inefficient dryers and longer than usual drying times often requiring multiple cycles per load. Experts say multi-family properties should conduct dryer duct cleanings at least twice a year, and likely more often depending on the habits of the building’s occupants. ChuteMaster is ready to help you hit that mark. We clean the exhausts for both individual unit dryers and shared exhaust lines for common area laundry rooms.
Sometimes, dryer vents clog more quickly than expected. Often, that’s a sign your vents are damaged or were installed incorrectly. Our excellent technicians can review your system to ensure high-level performance. If they find anything amiss, they can repair your dryer exhaust lines.
Common Dryer Room Cleaning
Offering common washing machines and dryers & allowing tenants to have their own dryer/washers inside their units in your building are reliable ways to attract good tenants. Experienced managers and landlords, however, recognize they need to protect their investment & the safety of their property with routine dryer vent cleanings.
Every year, clogged dryer vents lead to thousands of fires across the United States, leading to avoidable deaths and millions of dollars in property damage. While lint traps can block most bits of fuzz and cloth from escaping into your dryer vent, some still gets through and settles in ducts even under the best of conditions. Consider how many loads of laundry your tenants wash every year and whether every tenant empties the lint trap each time.
