If you own or manage a commercial property, such as a hotel, laundromat, health club, or care facility, then chances are good that high volumes of laundry are being done at your facility. Duct Cleaning understands the importance of keeping your employees and customers safe, as well as protecting your investment. We provide commercial dryer vent cleaning services to property owners who want to maximize efficiency and minimize risk. Here are some reasons you should consider professional dryer vent cleaning for your property.
Why Dryer Vents Pose a Risk
Uncleaned dryer vents cause a substantial number of damages, injuries, and even deaths each year. When these vents become damaged or dirty, they create resistance and increased pressure on the internal blower. The resulting rise in the temperatures in the dryer system can then ignite the flammable lint. It’s essential that places of business that have dryers running continuously schedule routine dryer duct maintenance, because their chances of a fire are even greater than in a residential setting.
Benefits of Dryer Vent Maintenance
Scheduling routine dryer vent maintenance has many benefits. Besides the most obvious benefit of eliminating the accumulation of highly combustible lint that increases the risk of fires, a professional dryer vent cleaning will make sure the air in your commercial property is healthy to breathe. It can also save you money over time as the dryer won’t have to work as hard, using less energy while operating. Dryer vents that are properly maintained will perform better and extend the life of the dryer.
