Commercial Dryer Vent Cleaning
Dirty dryer vents are a serious fire hazard, especially in commercial and industrial facilities, where the dryers are routinely over-taxed to support the extensive washing that takes place. A clogged dryer exhaust will block water and hot air from being expelled. The trapped air is likely to lead to a rise in the temperature of the dryer. High temperature, combined with the highly-combustible lint that accumulates over time over the vent surfaces, forms an ideal recipe for fire. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, overheated dryers are the cause of roughly 15,500 fires each year, and approximately 10 deaths and injuries every year.
The best way to ensure maximum safety from fire is to get the dryer vent cleaned of lint on a regular basis. ACIA has been certified by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association since 2005 and has since cleaned thousands of dryer vents. With the use of our specialized tools, we are able to provide video inspection both before and after cleaning to ensure we have gotten every piece of lint removed from the system. Big or small, ACIA can handle it all. Whether you are a small facility with one or two dryers, or a commercial laundry facility, we can get the job done right. Also, ask about our dryer vent cleaning PM program. We know it’s tough to remember when you need to schedule your equipment to be cleaned, so let us do it for you. We will work with you to establish a necessary cleaning interval and show up when it’s due; even giving you a courtesy call to remind you we will be showing up ahead of time.
Apart from posing a fire threat, lint formation can:
- Cause the dryer to work harder to perform its task
- Increase energy consumption
- Accelerate the failure of the thermostat
- Significantly reduce the lifespan of the appliance
