Whether you live or work in a multi-unit environment, there are plenty of moving parts that keep these spaces running smoothly. From organizational practices to basic property maintenance, it is all necessary and this includes proper duct cleaning.
It is easy to let duct care slip your mind, especially with a busy schedule but even a bit of neglect can turn your laundry room into a health hazard. In high-traffic areas like hotels, hospitals, apartments or assisted living centres, regular care is more important than ever.

Burlington Dryer Duct Cleaning: What to Know
Everyone is familiar with pulling a piece of lint off of a sweater but very few people have seen a clogged dryer. No matter the size of your machine, whether it is a household clothes dryer or an industrial appliance, each of these are outfitted with a lint trap, but a mesh screen can’t trap all the debris blowing around your system.
With each load of laundry that passes through your system, there are bits and pieces of lint and debris that escape these traps and become lodged inside ducts. For a household dryer, it might take quite a long time for lint buildup to become an issue but in a multi-unit arena, you might be dealing with dozens of loads of laundry per day, speeding up the process.
The Consequences of Clogged Dryer Ducts
As lint builds, there are consequences that will play out inside your system and the surrounding areas. For example, lint is highly flammable, so a collection of debris can quickly lead to a dryer fire. As if being a fire hazard weren’t enough of a reason to call for professional dryer vent cleaning, there are some other things to consider as well.
Air Quality: With each layer of debris that collects inside your system, proper air circulation is limited and can cause a drop in indoor air quality. When dryer exhaust is not allowed to cycle out, new air is not allowed in. As air re-enters laundry rooms, it carries allergens and other contaminants in with it.
Bacteria: Damp, dark and covered areas are the perfect place for mold and other bacteria to thrive. As growth and mildew begin to form, spores are transported back through vents, having a negative impact on those with respiratory issues.
Wear and Tear: With regular maintenance, a dryer can last for years. For anyone that has undergone an appliance or dryer vent installation, there is a predicted lifespan on each aspect of your machine. A blocked air vent means laundry does not dry properly, encouraging repeat loads and causing unnecessary wear and tear on machines, which means costly repairs or premature replacements.
Gorilla Duct Cleaning: All the Right Moves
When it comes to getting real results for your dryer vent system, it is important to have the right technique and approach to your treatment. It is always possible to run out to a department store in order to grab a brush or basic dryer vent cleaner but these don’t get the right results.
Instead of settling for subpar service, choose a professional to reach even those tough-to-reach areas that are often overlooked. Pulling machines away from the wall, vacuuming spaces and wiping fixtures clean are all a part of great service and excellent results.
