Chute Inspection & Repair

Apartment trash chutes need to be certified each year to make sure they are fire safe. But it can be difficult to know who to call to prepare your chutes for inspection. That’s where we come in. 

Chute Inspection & Repair services provide a full examination of your trash chutes and discharge doors with tune-ups for broken or damaged equipment by a trained team of professionals. Our Maintenance Techs check chute parts related to fire safety, automatically perform minor adjustments and provide a full report of major repairs suggested by our team.
