In an urban environment, clotheslines are a thing of the past. These simple additions might have been a traditional way to finish off a load of laundry, but they are not as effective as modern clothes dryers. Appliances are designed to make laundry rooms more convenient but this only works if you clean your dryer. On average, a household machine is designed to last a decade or longer but for multi-unit properties, keeping things running can be tricky. In areas like apartment buildings, condo complexes or even hospitals and schools, there is no such thing as ordinary wear and tear. Regular Nanaimo dryer vent cleaning can help keep your systems running smoothly and your appliances in great shape.
The Consequences of Clogs
When plumbing gets clogged up, it is hard to ignore but blocked ducts are more subtle. Just because dryers suffer silently doesn’t mean that they are any less of a problem than a backed up sink or shower. Each load that goes through your system, leaves bits of lint, dust and debris floating around inside your machine. The majority of these will be caught by lint traps but these layers of mesh can’t catch everything. As bits and pieces squeeze passed screens, there is nowhere to go but into ducts. A bit of fluff here or there doesn’t do too much damage but as items layer over each other, they become problematic. As air flow becomes more and more restricted, you can expect a drop in functionality, an increased risk of dryer vent fires and a drop in indoor air quality.
Damp, dark and covered environments are the perfect areas for mold to thrive. This means that any circulation coming though air ducts and dryer vents will be carrying allergens and other harmful bacteria. A contaminated air duct system is dangerous for anyone but for those with weakened immune systems, it can be a real threat. Lint is also highly flammable, which can mean house fires. In addition to physical damage, blocked ducts can cause unnecessary wear and tear on your system. With less circulation, your dryer needs to work harder, meaning strain which means unnecessary or preemptive repair and replacement. Having systems professionally cleaned means staying functional longer, saving costs and keeping tenants and guests happy.
