This commercial dryer vent cleaning was completed at a hotel in Northern VA with 4 commercial dryers used daily by the housekeeping staff.
This local hotel’s dryer was not operating efficiently because of blockage. They also were concerned about the lint build-up from daily use. They were searching for a professional dryer vent cleaning company and chose Duct Cleaning based on our reviews and reputation for cleaning other local hotels in Northern Virginia. The hotel also liked that we could provide regular semi-annual and annual cleaning plans to ensure their dryers were always safe and efficient.
What made this Commercial Dryer Vent Cleaning Project Unique?
Dryers in hotels are used daily to help turn over rooms and keep linens clean for guests, so we had to be strategic about when we take them out of operation. We planned with the hotel to begin the work on a Tuesday morning so they could get through their Monday cleaning rush and then have downtime while the cleaning happened on Tuesday. This was unique because, with 4 dryers, we had to shut them off individually, but they were all connected to one large air vent so none of them could be running during the cleaning.
How Long did this Commercial Dryer Vent Cleaning Project Take?
We completed this cleaning over the course of one day, our team disconnected the dryers from the ductwork, cleaned the dryer’s internal components, and removed blockage entirely through the dryer exhaust.
For commercial dryer vents, it’s important to ensure the cleaning of the exhaust ductwork and the dryer lint trap, especially for hospitals and high-use dryers, lint can be a fire hazard if any build-up is left in any components.

Benefits of Commercial Dryer Vent Cleaning
The result of this commercial dryer vent cleaning was:

We recommend having a commercial dryer vent cleaning completed every 6-12 months for commercial dryers. For commercial air duct cleaning, we recommend every 5-7 years because lint, dust, and debris collect over time. Dryer vent cleaning can also be more frequent if your dryers run all day and you want to ensure a clean and safe building.
Uncleaned dryer vents are the cause of a substantial number of damages, injuries, and deaths annually. According to the National Fire Protection Association, 29 percent of dryer-related fires are ignited by dust, fiber, or lint, and the leading cause of clothes dryer and washer fires is failure to clean the dryer vents. When these vents become damaged or dirty, they create resistance and increased pressure on the clothes dryer’s internal blower—which can result in the rising temperatures in the dryer system that can ignite the flammable lint!
