There is hardly a property in Scarborough that does not have a clothes dryer hiding out somewhere. These machines are a crucial part of any household but multi-unit properties really depend on these appliances. Condo complexes and apartment buildings have shared laundry rooms but so do hotels, hospitals and even schools. With so many people relying on a working dryer, upkeep is more and more important. Instead of struggling with machinery and vents all on your own, have a Gorilla do the dirty work for you. Professional Scarborough dryer vent cleaning helps keep your machine in good condition, eliminates fire hazards and helps save you money!
Understanding Your Air Duct System
It is easy to forget just how important dryers really are to your property. Sure, they get your clothes cleaned quickly but they also have a huge impact on indoor air quality, utility costs and when neglected, can mean the risk of fires. In a regular, single household, dryers are used a couple times a week at most but in high-traffic environments, there are multiple loads a day, running every day of the year. This is a ton of use, which means a ton of wear and tear. When carefully maintained, a clothes dryer can last a decade or longer but without proper cleaning, this becomes drastically shorter. So, what makes dryer duct cleaning so important? Lint!
With each load of laundry, lint, hair and other forms of debris are let loose in your system. Ordinarily, machines are outfitted with a removable, mesh trap meant to catch and hold these items. This is great in theory but they can’t hold everything. As bits and pieces sneak passed these mesh screens, they become lodged in an air duct or dryer vent. Over time, items layer over themselves, sticking together and collecting moisture. With limited flow in air ducts, mold begins to grow. This means the air being circulated through your machine is contaminated. This is bad enough in general but it can be dangerous to those people with allergies or weakened immune systems. Once this buildup dries out, it is incredibly flammable. A single spark can send your vents into flames.
Many Canadians use the DIY approach to cut property maintenance costs. This might make sense in some arenas but not when it comes to clean ducts. Dryers are complicated appliances with plenty of places for debris to hide out. Digging down underneath lint traps is not enough to ensure a clean system. A reputable duct cleaning company is able to track down clogs into even the most difficult of hiding spots. Our Gorillas want to get the best results for our clients and that means going the extra mile for both residential and commercial duct cleaning services. Our experts are able to take apart and reassemble ducts in order to not only remove clogs but to scrub the sides to make sure that you have long-lasting results.
The Gorilla Approach
Instead of relying on by-hand removal, our team of property maintenance specialists use high-powered vacuums to suck systems clean. Small cameras allow our team members to see inside systems, targeting buildup and making sure that every last clog is removed. Once blockages are taken care of, the sides of tubing, vents and ducts are scrubbed clean. This added touch prevents blockages from reforming quickly. Instead of just taking our word for it, clients are provided with ‘before and after’ photos, showing off our results.
