Why Dryer Vents Need to Be Cleaned Regularly
A lint trap is not going to catch everything thrown at it. Fine particles can still make it through the exhaust duct, usually getting stuck on corners, vent flaps and screws. Over time, this accumulation of lint will continue to build up, which can cause your connected commercial dryers to work harder yet also become less efficient.
Longer drying times are just one of many problems associated with a neglected exhaust vent. Materials such as dryer sheets, clothes and other items in a dryer may emit noxious fumes, especially at sustained, higher temperatures. Carbon monoxide is one of the biggest threats in this regard, which is why dryer exhausts are designed to filter fumes out and keep your business’ indoor air quality as clean as possible. A lint-filled, dirty and inefficient vent can form blockages and increase the volatile organic compound (VOC) and carbon monoxide counts in your airstream, which can be fatal in some circumstances. The biggest threat of all is fire, however, this is caused by dryers overheating due to exhaust blockage.

What Can You Do?
Inspecting your commercial dryer venting system regularly should be a priority. It’s important to make sure that your venting is free from any restrictions or damages. A simple way to do this is to check the exterior vent cap for lint, debris or any other hazard. It isn’t recommended to use a wire screen to keep pests away as this encourages clogging and airflow restriction.
According to the USFA (2018), it is estimated that there are 15,600 structure fires, 400 injuries, and 15 deaths reported annually because of dryer fires. Every year, clothes dryer fires account for over $100 million in losses. In addition, dryer fires involving commercial dryers have a 78% higher injury rate than residential dryer fires.

Don’t put your business at risk
Laundry facilities in apartment complexes, retirement homes, hospitals, rooming houses require regular dryer vent maintenance to ensure safety. Commercial Laundromat establishments and laundry service rooms in residences are two of the most largely neglected types of dryer systems most commonly found. In fact, any location with multiple commercial dryers that sees large quantities of laundry over the course of a year should be inspected.
What most building owners don’t realize is the link traps located on each dryer don’t catch 100% of the lint generated by a dryer causing it to be sent downstream through the exhaust duct which can have screws in it or sharp corners catching the lint causing reduced capacity of the venting system and the possibility of a fire. Power Vac will come inspect the system at your establishment, provide you with a quote to clean the duct as well as make improvements to the system for increased efficiency. Once the first cleaning is completed and improvements and repairs are completed Power Vac will put you on a regular schedule to ensure the system is maintained and kept efficient throughout the year.
