Why Should I Clean my Commercial Dryer Vent?
Dryer vents carry the lint from cotton and nylon clothing to the outside world. When these vents become damaged or dirty they create resistance and increased pressure on the clothes dryer’s internal blower. This increased pressure can result in the steadily rising temperature of the exhaust air which can actually ignite the combustible lint in the vent. Electric dryers are the most problematic in this regard due to the high heat generated by the element .The lint begins to burn and spreads through the lightweight aluminum vent pipe and starts a structure fire. Once the vent is compromised and the fire started the dryer begins to fan the flames of the dryer vent fire and soon the flames spread very rapidly to the entire laundry room. Dryer vent fires can be prevented by easily and inexpensive annual cleaning. The more children and pets that one has in the house the dirtier the dryer vent will be. Pet hair is extremely combustible and it is removed from people’s clothing in the clothes drying process and soon collects down the entire length of the dryer vent, setting up a perfect scenario for a dryer vent fire!
