Dents: If there are dents that malforms the rubbish chute, such that it loses its air-tight function, then the rubbish chute is not useful to you anymore. This is a potential entryway for insects to invade your home, and for foul garbage smell to come through.

Smelly: If you notice that there is a strong, foul odour coming from your rubbish chute, you need a rubbish chute replacement quickly. The rubbish chute is no longer able to keep out the refuse chute smell because of cracks, holes or dents.


Noise: If your rubbish chute tends to produce loud bangs when your upstairs neighbours are throwing their trash down the refuse chute, it means you might want to replace your rubbish chute with a shorter tongue.

Leaking Rubbish Chute: Some homes have their rubbish chutes near a water source, perhaps under a kitchen sink. If your pipes are leaking, it will affect your rubbish chute by making it rust faster. You can contact A1 Rubbish Chute Singapore to handle both your plumbing and rubbish chute needs.
