Commercial Dryer Vent Cleaning in The Greater Boston Area & Southern New Hampshire
Does your business have a clothes dryer on-site? If the answer is yes, there is a pressing hazard hidden in your workplace!
Service businesses such as hotels, gyms, assisted living facilities, commercial cleaners, laundromats, and hair salons, are often equipped with industrial dryers. By running high volumes of laundry each day, these businesses are at constant risk of dryer vent fires. The National Fire Protection Association reported that clothes dryers are responsible for more than 15,000 fires and over $80 million in damages a year. These fires occur from the collection of lint on the dryer’s heating element causing it to overheat and catch fire. Due to lint’s high flammability rating, scheduled dryer vent cleanings are crucial to the safety of these businesses.
How to minimize the risk of a dryer vent fire
- Clean the lint filters between every load
- Limit the use of fabric softener sheets due to the dangerous chemical film they produce
- Replace cheap, plastic dryer flex ducts with durable, metal dryer flex ducts
- Routinely dust the surrounding area of each dryer
While you can still do a quality job cleaning your dryer vents from time to time, when it comes to major in-depth cleaning, you should always seek to hire a professional. Long and bendy “flex” ductwork can be difficult to access on your own and lead to unintentional punctures. At Aspen Air Duct Cleaning we have completed commercial dryer vent cleanings for local businesses and buildings since 2008 and are ready to help with your project.
How often should commercial dryer vents be cleaned?
Commercial dryers are much larger than residential dryers and therefore should have their vents cleaned more frequently. It is recommended to have your commercial dryer vent cleaned every 1-2 years, however if you have a high volume of use such as house keeping dryers or apartment buildings, every 3-6 months may be necessary.
