Benefits of Cleaning Dryer Vents
As we mentioned, the primary reason to have a commercial dryer vent cleaning is to reduce the chance that a fire will start from all of the dry lint that is clogging the dryer vents leading to the outside of the building. But there are other benefits that come with having clean dryer vents. One of these is the reduction of energy usage in order to dry the clothes and other items. Whether that is a reduction of electricity, natural gas, or other energy source, clean dryer vents allow the warm, moist air to escape faster and reduce energy costs.
By keeping your commercial dryer vents cleaned of lint and other debris, you will also be extending the useful life of your commercial dryers. With clogged dryer vents, you are forcing your dryer to work harder to dry the clothes, linens, and other items, and you will likely need to run several drying cycles to dry a single load. By keeping your dryer vents clean, you maximize the effectiveness of your commercial dryers.
When to Get a Commercial Dryer Vent Cleaning
There are a few signs that will indicate that you should schedule a dryer vent cleaning. If you are finding that you need to run your commercial dryer longer in order to dry the same size load, this is an indication that your dryer vents are getting clogged and need to be cleaned. If your dryer is getting too hot, this is another sign of the need for a dryer vent cleaning.
Usually having your commercial dryer vents cleaned every few years is sufficient, but if you are encountering signs of a clogged dryer vent at your commercial building in Bethpage, NY, Hauppauge, NY, Long Island, Medford, NY, Nassau County, Suffolk County, and the surrounding areas, make the call to Better Air Quality. We will make sure that your dryer vents are cleaned and you have efficient working dryers.
