Duct Cleaning: Enhance Efficiency and Safety for Your Commercial Laundry Appliances

Duct Cleaning

 How often do you check your dryer vents? Most people presume their lint traps catch all the lint and maybe empty the trap after each load once a week or only when it overflows. Dryers produce very large quantities of lint, which is highly flammable. A significant amount (up to 25%) of lint that is not caught by the trap can build up inside the dryer and within the ducting, and even on the heating element within the machine causing it to overheat and possibly catch fire.

The fire services in the UK have highlighted the potential fire risks and Insurance companies request that dryer vents should be cleaned regularly.

Regularly cleaned machines not only reduce the fire risk but work more effectively, minimise repairs, reduce excessive heat damage to garments and will help cut down electricity costs with shorter drying times.

Save as much as 25% on your energy bills

With a blocked duct, your dryer will take longer to dry laundry, which in turn will result in unnecessary Energy wastage and higher utility costs

As it operates, your dryer’s vent system removes moisture and lint from your laundry. This lint builds up as a thick coating on your dryer duct and substantially reduces its drying capacity, but our checks can ensure this build-up doesn’t occur.

We will clean your dryer ducts and ensure your machines operate at maximum efficiency. By significantly increasing the airflow of your dryer, we will save you as much as 25% on your energy bills.
