4 Signs Your Commercial Laundry Exhaust Needs Cleaning

A well-functioning dryer is one of the key components of daily operations for any business that depends on laundry services. If you manage a hotel, dry-cleaning service, or fitness center, you likely have laundry appliances on your property that run every single day. Guardian Services understands how important it is for these to operate without any costly downtime, and that is why we offer laundry exhaust cleaning services. Let’s go through four signs that your laundry exhaust needs cleaning so that you can avoid any risks caused by accumulated debris in your dryer’s vent pipe.

Laundry Exhaust Cleaning

1. Excessive Buildup of Dryer Lint 

As you know, the dryer’s lint collector should be cleaned out after every load of laundry. This isn’t a replacement for professional vent cleaning, however. If you notice an increase in the lint buildup and visible debris around the lint traps and dryer vents, it’s probably time to get the exhaust cleaned out by our skilled experts.

2. Increased Heat in and around Dryer

Have you noticed a steady increase in the air temperature in your laundry facility when the dryers are running? Whether you feel excessive heat in the laundry room or your dryer is running hotter than usual, you could have a clogged dryer vent. Any reduction in the airflow through your vent can create a fire hazard.

3. Longer than Usual Drying Times 

Another sure sign that you might be past due for laundry exhaust cleaning is when you notice that clothing and linens are taking longer than usual to get completely dry. Your exhaust system may be clogged, resulting in the air not being able to flow through the dryer vent efficiently. Extended drying cycles will slow down your operations and create a fire hazard.

4. Noticeable Increase in Energy Costs

If you observe any of the above signs in addition to a noticeable spike in your utility bills, it’s likely that your laundry exhaust needs professional attention. When your exhaust system becomes clogged, it forces your equipment to work harder and operate less efficiently. On the contrary, a cleaned exhaust system will allow your dryers to run efficiently and safely.
