Laundry Exhaust Duct cleaning

Many fires have been caused and spread due to dirty exhaust ducts causing serious damage not only in the laundry but also in the main building resulting in injury or loss of life. The spread of fire can be minimized by the regular cleaning. We clean the entire duct system to ensure that all lint and dry flammable dust is removed. Ductwork, which is not cleaned on a regular basis of 6 months depending upon usage, becomes a serious fire hazards. Laundry Exhaust Duct Before5. LD Duct Before

Found in commercial laundries which can be a part of a hotel complex or a factory. Of all air handling systems, laundries are the most fire hazardous. This is because they pick up lint and fluff via the large driers. It is recommended that these systems are cleaned at least every 4 – 6 months to prevent the risk of fire and the risk of costly blockages.

Efficiency

Blockages in these systems are common. Over a period of time the material being exhausted can build up in the duct. Even though the fan works harder, it is not as efficient and the blockage becomes worse. Unfortunately, in most cases the fan will break down causing major problems. A simple regular cleaning program will eliminate this problem. Not only will the system be cleaned but you will be kept informed of any problems that may be occurring in the system so that they can be addressed before any costly repairs or loss of time.

Method of Work:

Our work will include cleaning the entire ductwork, where physically possible, including/excluding the vertical sections. We clean vertical ducts using several methods, one of which is a rotating brush and high-pressure steam nozzle. The other method involves a technician descending the ducts depending upon the size of the duct to manually clean the duct.
