A clothes dryer is an integral part of any home, and can be extremely important to a commercial space. Whether you run a dryer system once a day, or twelve times a day, there is always lint accumulating within the vents. Keeping ducts clean is not just a question of good maintenance, it is a matter of health and safety as well. Calling a Gorilla for your Aurora dryer vent cleaning helps to keep properties safe and systems running smoothly.
It can be tough to think of household appliances as being dangerous but without proper cleaning and maintenance, this is exactly what they are. Dryer lint is highly flammable and a serious fire hazard. Cleaning your dryer might seem simple but accessing ducts is not. Clogged dryer vents put unnecessary wear and tear on your appliances, leading to the need for costly repairs and replacements, and can lead to increased utility bills. Improve efficiency and protect your property with a bit of help from a Gorilla.
Getting to Know Your Dryer Ducts
All dryers operate differently, depending on the model, age, usage and maintenance schedule. A clothes dryer in a private, single family home, for example, has different needs than the machines in the laundry room of an apartment complex, hospital or hotel. With each load of laundry that passes through a system, there are bits and pieces left behind.
A standard lint trap is often made up of a mesh screen and not much else. These are designed to trap and hold onto debris as it comes loose inside the machine, but they can’t catch everything. Bits and pieces of debris that make it past these traps become lodged in air ducts. While it is possible to run a hand through traps to remove the obvious buildup, it Is important to dig deep into the system, in order to reduce risks.
Dryer fires are a real concern for property owners, but a contaminated dryer exhaust system can also impact indoor air quality. As wet lint and debris make it into your system, they become stuck against the sides of pipes and vents. This creates an ideal space for bacteria and mold to take root. As air cycles through, it carries this bacteria back into the laundry room, creating poor air quality.
In addition to reducing the risk of a dryer fire, proper dryer duct cleaning and maintenance can help the dryer run smoothly. Lint buildup reduces air flow and circulation, meaning your appliances have to work harder. In areas where machines are handling multiple loads per day, it means unnecessary wear and tear, as well as higher utility costs. A professional air duct cleaning service can help to create an accessible space for tenants or staff, while keeping running costs down for property owners.
