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.
