Article Summary: 

Chutes are an efficient way of disposing of garbage, but they can become dirty, leading to unpleasant smells, bacterial growth, and flammable grease buildup. While some managers hire contractors for cleaning the chutes, it can be expensive and may not be done frequently. DIY chute cleaning is an inexpensive way to maintain the chutes weekly and avoid grease buildup and bacterial growth. A DIY approach requires some equipment, such as a chute cleaner and degreaser, water connection, and a dispenser. The chute cleaning process involves setting up a schedule, closing the chutes for a couple of hours during the day, cleaning the air shaft, using an effective chute wash degreaser, rinsing, cleaning the floor, and cleaning the inside of the door with chute door cleaner.
