Dryer Duct Cleaning: An Essential Security for Your Business
Ensuring the safety of your employees, customers and premises should be one of your top priorities. If your activity or business uses dryers, maintaining their duct is paramount.
Did you know that the lack of maintenance of the ducts causing dryer fires is the third cause of fire in our country? Indeed, lint buildup can clog the duct and cause overheating. Lint being made of highly flammable fibers can very quickly cause a fire and damage your device, or worse, endanger the health or lives of your customers and staff.
When to clean your dryer duct?
We strongly recommend cleaning a dryer duct every 2 to 3 years. The length of the duct, the number of elbows, the material used in walls and ceilings, and the use of the appliance are all factors that affect the frequency required for cleaning dryer ducts.
Don’t hesitate to consult Imperial Cleaning to find out about this frequency and the specific maintenance needs of your company’s dryer.
There are also signs of an obstructed and potentially dangerous duct. An immediate cleaning will be necessary when:
- Towels, jeans, and other heavy clothes take a long time to dry, even when the dryer seems to be working.
- Even after the drying phase, clothes are wet or warmer than usual.
- The shutters on the outdoor vent do not open when the dryer is running.
- The dryer shuts off continuously before the end of its cycle.
If you recognize these signs, take care of your safety, that of your visitors, customers, and employees. Contact the Groupe Impérial to clean your company’s dryer ducts as soon as possible.
Our methods of cleaning dryer ducts
The outdoor exhaust valve must be checked regularly. Indeed, particles and other dirt that escape the filter can lodge and thus obstruct the shutters of the valve, making it impossible to close. Cold air, birds or rodents can infiltrate and cause considerable damage.
A dryer must discharge more than 3 to 5 liters of water each cycle, so it is crucial to maintain the exhaust air ducts to prevent water from accumulating in the laundry room.
Thanks to our air-purge or pulse-suction suction cleaning methods, which are ideal for long or straight dryer ducts, Groupe Impérial guarantees a complete cleaning of your company’s dryer ducts.
Focus on efficiency, hygiene and safety. Contact the Groupe Impérial for your commercial cleanings.
