Why you need dryer vent cleaning:
- Your dryer is taking much longer to dry clothes or towels or NOT fully drying
- Your clothes are hotter than normal when they’re done drying
- Your outdoor flap doesn’t open when your dryer is on
- You have experienced a steady increase in your energy bills
- You want to extend the life of your commercial appliance
Due to their relatively large size and capacity, commercial dryer vents require cleaning more frequently than do residential dryer vents. When commercial dryer vents get clogged, the dryer cannot expel the damp, lint laden air as designed. A minimum of annual frequency is usually recommended for most locations with commercial dryers.
Commercial machines are expensive to purchase so it behooves the laundry department to maintain the dryers and keep them running optimally to delay replacement expenses as long as possible.
If the dryer vents are clogged, even slightly, it puts more strain on the machines to exhaust the damp, lint filled air. This causes the machines to run longer to get the same drying effect as when the dryer ducts are clean. If the machines run longer, there is more wear on the machine, they use more gas/electricity, which increases operating expenses.
Preventative maintenance, such as dryer vent cleaning will help keep your dryers working at their optimal level. And more importantly, it will help reduce the fire hazard caused by lint packed ductwork.
We have seen an increase in requests for commercial dryer vent cleaning as a result of facilities being prompted by local and state inspectors, as well as insurance regulators.
