For fire prevention, efficiency in laundry operations and significant savings on utility bills, commercial dryer duct cleaning is often overlooked. Also known as commercial dryer vent cleaning, it is crucial for businesses that do high volumes of laundry. The National Fire Protection Association reports that there are over 15,000 fires sparked by clothes dryers annually, causing over $80 million in damage and loss of life.
In hotels, health clubs, senior care facilities, commercial cleaners, laundromats, and fluff-and-fold services, dryers often run continuously, leading to substantial lint build up, increasing the chance of a fire. Often the dryer ducts need to traverse multiple floors and turns to reach the outside exhaust vent. Commercial dryer duct cleaning substantially reduces fire hazards and makes a big difference in energy efficiency and utility costs.
