Does your company/organization do laundry on a daily basis? Have you noticed that the dryer is not working as efficiently as it did before?
This is mainly due to Lint Buildup inside the Dryer and Dryer Vent System. Lint Buildup causes the Air Velocity of the Dryer Exhaust to drop greatly, creating inefficiencies and the potential of a Dryer Fire.
Dryer Fire Hazard & Poison Risk
Each day in North America, clothes dryers produce tons of lint. Lint results from the breakdown of clothing fibers created during the drying cycle. Over time, a Dryer’s Exhaust System clogs up as a result of Lint Buildup, virtually choking the Dryer and its Vent System. This is especially dangerous with regards to Gas-Fueled Dryers which can drive Carbon Monoxide Fumes back into the air and create a poisonous environment for its occupants.
Increases in Laundry Costs
Lint Buildup also affects a dryer’s efficiency and unnecessarily adds wear and tear to the appliance thereby shortening its life span. In commercial establishments where a clothes dryer is used, operators are often forced to wait longer for loads to dry. All these conditions cost extra time and money for homeowners and commercial establishments alike. It is much more cost effective and safer to have a Regular Maintenance Program set in place than to deal with a Crisis Management situation.
Therefore, Lint Buildup in your system will make your dryer work harder, subjecting it to more wear and tear and will result in a shorter life span for the appliance. While hanging your laundry on a clothes line to dry is still the best way to stay Green, having a Cleaned and Well-Maintained Dryer and Dryer Vent System is the Next Best Thing! It will not only save you money and time but will give you “Peace of Mind” knowing that your Dryer is operating safely and efficiently, helping to keep our environment Green at the same time.
