Commercial And Industrial Dryer Vent Inspection and Cleaning Tucson, AZ
Cleaning your Commercial or Industrial Dryer Vent may not seem like an important service that needs to be done. But you’d be surprised that by having your system cleaned by a professional will save money on your utility bill and most importantly reduce the risk of your facility having a dryer vent fire.

You could be replacing equipment; when all you needed to do was clean the dryer vent, regularly.

3. Remove the Dryer Vent (ductwork/pipe) and all dryer vent access doors – Inspect the entire dryer vent duct from the dryer to the exit point. There should be no cracks or restrictions. The vent should be air tight from the dryer to end of the discharge vent
