It does not matter what season it is, germs abound in an office environment if they are left unchecked.

From changing cleaning products to ways you can recycle the trash from the office, you can use the information found here to discuss changes with your cleaning service so that your office remains sparkling clean with an environmentally-friendly conscience.

Two situations in which you should rent a cleaning company's garbage chute


Below are some situations in which you should rent one of the garbage chutes that some cleaning companies have available for hire.

The rubbish you need to remove from the upper floor of a building is malodorous and features liquids

If there is currently some rubbish housed in the upper floor of a building which contains liquids and smells particularly bad (for example, if it features a lot of spilt milk, used cat litter and rotting meat), then you should use a rented garbage chute to remove it from this building.

The reason for this is that, if the bags that you put this rubbish into tear whilst you're making your way down to the ground floor or if you drop the bags whilst doing this, the contents may splatter onto the floors, the stairs, the bannister and the walls. Cleaning up the hundreds of sour milk droplets and every bit of dirty cat litter could take hours, and you might find it impossible to get rid of the smell that the rotting meat imparts onto any surface it lands on (especially in the case of any absorbent surfaces).

Conversely, if you rent a garbage chute, you can throw all manner of stinky fluids and debris down it without having to worry about making a mess that you'll have to clean up later. Because cleaning companies who provide chutes sanitise them regularly, they will usually allow their customers to toss even the most malodorous items into them (as long as these items are not dangerous).

You have a lot of dusty rubbish to get rid of and your building is occupied by people with dust mite allergies

If there is a pile of very dusty rubbish in a building that is occupied by one or more people who have dust mite allergies, then you should rent a cleaning company's garbage chute. You should do this because it is very hard to move around dusty debris without inadvertently releasing some dust into the surrounding environment. If you carry a collection of dust-covered rubbish through a building, the movement you make whilst walking will cause dust to fall from the debris and land on every nearby surface. This could result in the occupants of the building who are allergic to dust mites having terrible allergic reactions. The only way to reduce the dust that is released when you do this would be to wet the debris; however, this could make carrying it a lot messier, as the dust and water mixture will turn into dirt that might stain your clothes and skin.

If, however, you put all of your dusty rubbish down an enclosed garbage chute, no dust will escape whilst it's moving through it, meaning that you'll be able to dispose of it without exacerbating any of the occupants' health issues. Whilst some dust may shoot into the air around the bin at the bottom of the chute, this should not cause any issues for the building's occupants as long as they are not standing right beside the bin when this happens.
