Replacing your rubbish chute is a simple and necessary step that your property management can take to ensure the safety of your residents. While building owners are responsible for removing, storing, and disposing of waste, it is equally important for them to provide a safe means of removing the garbage.
PW Plumbing offers complete rubbish chute replacement services starting from design to installation. An HDB rubbish chute installed by our expert contractors will help prevent injuries, and accidents and help you save money over time.
Why opt for an HDB Rubbish Chute
If you’re using a hazardous rubbish chute, it’s time for a replacement. Hazardous rubbish chutes are designed to be used at high speeds, and with little or no warning. They can cause serious injuries if they malfunction and also pose a fire risk. HDB Rubbish chutes are a very efficient and clean way to dispose of your rubbish on a daily basis. The system is so seamless and easy that users don’t often think twice about their HDB rubbish chute.
Signs your rubbish chute needs replacing
Worn out rubbish chute
When an HDB rubbish chute is not well-maintained, several problems arise, such as broken hinges and detached handles. With the constant use of the rubbish chute doors, the handle in your unit is bound to break, and your hinge is sure to loosen. The loose gaps that this will form in the rubbish chutes also make it easier for pests and foul smells to enter. If your rubbish chute has been in use for long periods of time, it could show signs of wear and tear – a sign that it requires immediate replacement. PW Plumbing can help you solve your rubbish chute issues as well as common plumbing problems that require plumbing contractors. Our skilled handymen will never leave things unrepaired or unattended once contracted.
Foul odour or smell
A foul-smelling trash chute or trash room can not only offend residents but can also be a health hazard. Even if the smell is behind closed doors, lingering odors can have a negative effect on the building’s residents and reputation. If you notice that there is a strong, foul odor coming from your rubbish chute, you need a rubbish chute replacement as soon as possible. The smell is a sign that the gaps and cracks from overuse have gotten too big, and are unable to keep the garbage sealed away.
No matter how bad the smell could be, our professional plumbers will have the chute replaced and your building will smell clean and fresh once again.
Cockroaches and rats are amongst the most common pests that reside in garbage chutes. Not only is their presence undesirable, but it will negatively affect your health and hygiene. If not controlled effectively immediately as they are noticed, these pests can spread quite fast into all sections of the buildings. Considering rubbish chutes are connected by a long contraption with a tray at every level, they can easily spread across all the floors. Whether the infestation occurs on the top, middle, or ground floors, there are chances the pests will find their way into other parts of the building via the chute system. At this point, any chance of saving the chute is gone, and you will require a rubbish chute replacement immediately.
