Dryer Vent & Duct Cleaning - NADCA Certified

A clogged dryer vent is a serious fire hazard, especially in commercial and industrial facilities, where the dryers are routinely over-taxed to support the extensive washing that takes place.

A clogged vent will block water and hot air from being expelled. The trapped air is likely to lead to a rise in the temperature of the dryer. High temperature, combined with the highly-combustible lint that accumulates over time over the vent surfaces, forms an ideal recipe for fire. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, overheated dryers are the cause of roughly 15,500 fires each year, and approximately 10 deaths and injuries every year.

Apart from posing a fire threat, lint formation can:

  • Cause the dryer to work harder to perform its task
  • Increase energy consumption
  • Accelerate the failure of the thermostat
  • Significantly reduce the lifespan of the appliance

The best way to ensure maximum safety from fire is to get the dryer vent cleaned of lint on a regular basis.

CORE, which is certified by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), utilizes state-of-the-art commercial dryer vent cleaning equipment to ensure the most effective job is done.

Services offered by CORE include commercial air duct cleaning vacuums with HEPA filters and high pressure air compressors to dislodge loose and encrusted lint and debris within the vent. The company also uses manual and motorized vent cleaning brushes and specialized vent cleaning tools to ensure that the vent is cleaned properly.

Does Certification Really Matter When It Comes To Cleaning Dryer Vents?

The short answer is - yes. Keep in mind that NADCA-certified professional's usually:

  • Blast high pressure, compressed air down the vent. The hot air jet loosens the lint and debris collected in the vent, and ejects them outside the vent opening
  • Catch the debris outside in a large special bag for easy disposal

Dryer vents must be cleaned after every two-to-three years. However, the time lag between cleanings should be less if the vents have several twists and turns. The interval between two cleanings will also depend on the amount of work the dryer is required to endure.

Ensure that your dryer vent is maintained at its optimal level of functioning and does not become a fire hazard at any point.

The Importance of Working With a State Licensed Air Conditioning Contractorstate-licensed-air-conditioning-contractor

To deal with the problems arising from slowly deteriorating IAQ, commercial and industrial facilities need to ensure that the AC ducts are cleaned and serviced regularly and that their equipment has been optimized in accordance with ASHRAE standards.

The reality is that with so much at stake, it does not pay to work with unlicensed contractors who often lack the education, hands-on training and cutting edge technologies granted by state licensing.

As a certified member in good standing of the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA), Core is an industry leading HVAC service provider and offers varied services to improve ventilation and system optimization. In addition, Core offers repair, maintenance and often total system replacements to industrial and commercial facilities.
