JTM Service Professional Duct Cleaning Service

Ensuring your ducting is inspected and cleaned regularly is vital, and means you will meet risk assessment standard, reduce fire risk and improve efficiency and performance on your tumble dryer operation.

What Are The Issues?

Gas tumble dryers remove hot moist air through the ducting, enabling the laundry to dry. Good airflow is therefore critical to the operation of a tumble dryer – if the airflow is restricted, this makes it harder to remove the hot moist air.

As tumble dryers operate, they emit lint and fluff. Much of this will be captured by lint screens and filters, but some particles will pass through these and go into the ducting. This lint sticks to the sides and will build up over time.

The build-up of lint can cause a number of risks and issues:

  • Fire – Lint is combustible, and gas tumble dryers have a naked flame. With the lint and naked flame in close proximity, fire is always a risk – the majority of fires in laundry rooms will be caused by blocked ducting.
  • Increased energy costs – your dryer is having to work harder and drying times will be extended, meaning it is less efficient and more energy hungry.
  • Poor drying performance – the dryer cannot expel the hot moist air as effectively and efficiently, and the drying results will be poorer.
  • Breakdowns and downtime – if the machine is working harder and less efficiently, this will inevitably lead to more breakdowns and downtime, and higher repair costs over time.
  • Decreased lifespan of the machine – following on from more breakdowns and working harder and less efficiently, the dryer will not last as long, meaning a new machine will be required quicker.
  • Compliance – an employer must by law provide a safe working environment for employees (including Annual Gas Safety checks by a Gas Safe registered company and engineer). Failure to meet legal requirements can lead to penalties and prosecution.
