Everyone says that kitchens are the heart and soul of any home but when it comes to multi-unit properties, it is definitely the laundry room. The goal of any clothes dryer is to make life easier for high traffic spaces like apartment buildings and condo complexes. Communal laundry rooms are busy but that is nothing compared to the stress of commercial spaces.
Hotels, schools, hospitals and assisted living centres deal with up to a dozen loads of laundry per day, so regular maintenance is more important than ever in these spaces. Professional Ladysmith dryer vent cleaning can clear away years of debris, keeping things running smoothly, improving air quality and reducing fire hazards.
What to Expect From Clogged Machines
Appliances are not designed to last forever but the right maintenance routine can keep them running a lot longer than expected. More than treating machines roughly, the bigger threat is smaller, silent and often overlooked: dryer lint comes loose from linens and clothing, clogging filters and stirring up trouble.
With every load of laundry that passes through your system, bits of fluff, paper, hair and other debris are cast off and caught up in lint filters. It is easy enough to pull out these removable traps and tackle buildup, but what about those items left behind? Mesh traps are great but they can’t catch everything,
Small pieces of debris sneak passed these filters and become lodged deeper inside systems, clogging ducts and hose attachments. Without proper air circulation, property owners can expect to see a drop in indoor air quality, a drop in functionality and unnecessary wear and tear on your system.
The Dangers of Clogged Ducts
It is no secret that lint is flammable. Having layers of buildup crammed inside the inner-workings of our machine means that even a single spark can set your systems ablaze. A dryer fire is the worst-case scenario but that does not mean that it is the only thing to worry about.
Damp and covered areas are ideal environments for mold to thrive. Lint and debris hold onto moisture, so it does not take long for bacteria and growth to build up. This means recirculated air is contaminated, spreading allergens and being a danger to those with weakened immune systems.
In addition to health hazards for your tenants or guests, blockages mean dryers are not working at their best. When clothes take longer to dry, it encourages repeat loads, which puts unnecessary wear and tear on your system. When maintained properly, machines can last for a decade or more and professional air duct cleaning does just that.
Choosing Gorilla for your dryer duct cleaning service means a complete clean, for even the most difficult to reach spaces. Running out to home depot and picking up basic tools like brush kits might put a dent into your buildup but it will not get the results that you want and need.
High-powered vacuum cleaners can suck a lint trap clean but they can also be directed inside hoses, attachments, wall ducts and other complex areas. When you are ready to clean your dryer vent, all it takes is one phone call to a Gorilla! Not only do our experts remove lint, but they scrub out accessible areas to ensure that buildup does not just reform.
