Laundry duct cleaning is very important and should be done timely. People hesitate in taking laundry duct cleaning services because of high costs but if vents are not cleaned timely, it can be hazardous. Lint is generated when the clothes are dried in the drying process. Laundry dryer vents are full of lint which can be dangerous as it catches fire easily. Commercial laundries and hotels have laundry duct extraction systems. They remove the moisture laden hot air from the dryers and exhaust it outdoors. Hot air contains lint particles which can stack up in the ducts. That`s why it is recommended to get these systems cleaned from time to time to prevent the risk of blockages and fire.
According to deaths (Consumer Product Safety Commission) there are around 15500 dryer fires annually, over 310 injuries and up to 30 deaths because of dryer exhaust duct fires. A clogged vent reduces the efficiency of drying clothes.
