Uncleaned dryer vents cause substantial damages, injuries, and deaths each year. According to the National Fire Protection Association, nearly 5% of all accidental home fires are caused by washing machines and dryers. When dryer vents become damaged or dirty, resistance and pressure are increased in the dryer’s blower. This pressure raises temperatures in the dryer that can then ignite the flammable lint.
Depending on how often your dryers are used, you should plan for dryer vent cleaning at least once a year. For a more accurate suggestion for how often cleanings should take place, our professionals will consider the age of your machines, frequency of use, and the length of the vents.

Dryer Vent & Duct Cleaning Benefits
If your business requires high volumes of laundry each day, you can greatly benefit from regular dryer vent cleanings. Not only will this service prevent costly repairs down the line, it will help protect your machines from fires and improve efficiency levels.
A professional commercial dryer vent cleaning will benefit your machines by:
- Reducing excess dust. A clean and properly installed dryer vent will ensuring water is fully removed from clothes during the drying cycle. If moisture isn’t removed from your vents in a timely manner, it could combine with the dust to grow mold and mildew.
- Preventing fires. Dryer fires can occur when lint and other debris build up in the dryer ducts or in the exhaust vents. When lint blocks the flow of air, excessive heat builds up, and as a result, ignites a fire. As a preventative measure, dryer vent cleaning on a regular basis will help eliminate lint build up that increases the risks of fire.
- Increasing dryer efficiency. By reducing lint in your ducts, your machines won’t have to work as hard to dry clothing. Increasing your dryer’s efficiency will use less energy while operating to save you money!
- Extending dryer life. Similarly, a dryer vent line that is clogged with lint will cause your dryer to work harder, resulting in a shorter life span. A properly maintained dryer vent helps to achieve maximum performance and can extend the life of your dryers.
