Every year millions of laundry appliances are purchased, making proper dryer venting practices paramount in homes and commercial sector entities, such as salons, pet grooming, medical, and rehabilitation centers. Developments in these sectors point to the increased demand for large-capacity dryers and the critical need for assuring their longevity through adequate venting of hot air.

Dryer Vent Cleaning Company Challenges

The #1 challenge is educating homeowners of the importance of dryer vent maintenance.

Many research studies reveal that house fires caused by low dryer airflow are far more common than generally thought. They are calling for the implementation of stringent regulations and standards for dryers and their ductwork installation. 

The manufacturers like Samsung, GE, LG, Maytag, and others have implements backpressure sensors. This sensor is a measure of the machine’s airflow efficiency.

Consequently, the regulatory bodies have imposed stringent policies that approve only specific dryer vent designs that improve safety.

There’s a growing demand for ventless dryers over vented alternatives in commercial use. There’s an inherent problem of lint accumulation in the dryers’ de-humidification system within the appliance. Ventless dryers also lead to over-heating, longer cycle times, damage to clothing, and fire breakouts.

Other hazards are dryer vents made of flexible plastic occur When the dryer gets pushed back against the wall it gets crushed . This type of dryer duct materials are more likely to sag.

This is why we recommend ridge metal, or UL approved flexible metal ducts. All connections should be with aluminum foil tape for dryer vent.

Dryer vents should not have screws, or duct tape. Screws catch lint and the tape will dry out and be useless.

Customers that use Screens, or cages at the Dryer duct termination point outside your home will prevent animals from getting in, consequently you’ll need to check frequently for lint buildup.
