Dryer Vent Cleaning
Dryer vent cleaning is imperative for municipal, county, state, and federal facilities, where dryers are routinely over-taxed to support extensive washing. Dryer vent fires are responsible for a substantial number of damages, injuries, and deaths annually. There are approximately 15,600 structure fires, 400 injuries, and 15 deaths reported each year due to dryer vent fires. And, half of all commercial dryer vent fires start from within the lint trap. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) states there are an average of 3,700 structure fires at hotel or motel properties annually, causing $127 million in damage. Of those fires, 9% are clothes dryer and washer related. And, the statistical percentages grow in industrial and manufacturing properties along with other commercial environments.
According to the United States Fire Administration, every year clothes dryer fires account for over $100 million in losses. Also, dryer fires involving commercial dryer vents have a 78% higher injury rate than residential dryer fires. A majority of commercial dryer vent fires occur as a result of highly flammable lint getting caught in the dryer duct and becoming heated to the point of ignition. Most commercial dryers come with lint traps, or filters, designed to capture the lint, yet only 70% is typically collected. The remainder sticks to the duct work and piping. Lint and other debris builds up over time so it is not ever safe to assume that emptying the filter regularly is enough to protect your property from a dryer vent fire.
