To keep your building’s garbage systems working consistently, they need to be maintained and inspected regularly, and that’s where we come in. Evolution Building Services has qualified technicians that provide comprehensive inspections and reports as well as preventative maintenance programs to ensure your waste management systems (including Trisorters if applicable) are working properly and that they are also up to code for fire and safety. After inspection, our team can provide bin and compactor cleanings, odour control unit repairs, and garbage chute repairs for your Ottawa building.

Garbage chute cleanings are very important because they get rid of the bacteria and odours that flow up the chute, as well as grease and caked on debris that forms inside and can be a fire hazard. Dirty garbage chutes can also attract unwanted insects and vermin which bring in more bacteria and disease. Contact us for chute cleanings and other preventative maintenance including monthly or quarterly fire-code compliance and rust-proofing.
