No one wants to use their spare time to clean the lint out of dryer vent openings. Debris and lint builds quietly, over time and this is most likely why this important chore is often forgotten. Failure to clean these areas can mean a dryer fire or poor indoor air quality – but who has the time? Instead of being overwhelmed with chores or struggling with poor DIY practices, call a Gorilla. Professional Paradise dryer vent cleaning services improve appliance performance, eliminates lint buildup and makes life easier for owners, managers and tenants.
Why You Should Clean Your Dryer Vents
A clothes dryer is designed to make life easier and this is so, so true when it comes to multi-unit spaces. The average household does several loads of laundry per week, depending on how many people live there but hotels, hospitals and apartment complexes see dozens per day! With each load of laundry that passes through systems, bits of lint and other debris are collecting inside your lint trap. It is easy enough to run a hand over these mesh screens to collect debris but there is still a certain amount of lint that just will not be contained. These bits and pieces that sneak through traps sit inside vents and ducts, creating major issues for those using the laundry room.
When dryers kick off, there is a lot of damp air circulating within the appliance. This damp air then travels through ducts and exits vents. This process pushes damp air out, allowing clothes and other linens to dry properly. As ducts become clogged, it limits the amount of airflow and damp air is left sitting. A covered, damp environment is the perfect place for mold to thrive. As mold spreads, it increases complications with allergies, and can lead to respiratory illness. Heavy buildups are also a fire hazard. Lint is flammable, so a dryer duct lined with debris might as well be a match waiting to be lit. Reduced air flow also means laundry takes longer to dry. This means loads might need to be run through twice, bringing up utility bills and causing unnecessary wear and tear on appliances. Instead of waiting for the worst to happen, have a Gorilla swing by with regular dryer duct cleaning services.
Calling In Professional Care
There are plenty of dryer vent cleaning kits on the market but no matter what type of brush kits are filling up your cupboards, they don’t work without the right know-how. If all you have to do is insert the brush and twist, you can’t expect great results. In order to make sure that systems are cleaned completely, our Gorillas use Back Pack Vacuums to suck gutters clean. Once clogs are gone, the sides of gutters are scrubbed clean to ensure that your drainage system isn’t clogged up again right away. Because downspouts are fully enclosed, our Gorillas can even dismantle, clean and reinstall these sections for a full and lasting clean.
In order to protect our clients from unfortunate accidents, every Gorilla is fully insured for property and personal damage. When you choose Gorilla for your property maintenance needs, all you get is great results and peace of mind – except for digital photos that is!
