CASE STUDY:
63 Dryer Vent Cleaned in Manhattan Residential Building

Summary
The management of the residential building in Upper East Side contacted us to clean 63 stackable dryers, covering 13 floors. The building was a late 90s development type, the dryers have not been cleaned for the last 5-6 years.

Technicians estimate identified a problem with risers and clogged roof fans. It took our team 5 days working from 8 am to 8 pm to clean the vents and roof fans. Teams of three technicians worked on the project in shifts.

After the cleaning, we sent an email report to the superintendent with photos of the dryers and riser before and after the cleaning and with recommendations for preventive maintenance in the building.
Facts about home clothes dryer fires listed at The U.S. Fire Administration

- Failure to clean the dryer (34 percent) is the leading cause of home clothes dryer fires.

The dryer must be checked and cleaned by a professional at least once a year. If the tenants often use their dryer, the exhaust vents should be cleaned every six months.
Reason for cleaning
The building manager was concerned about the frequent fires in New York City residential buildings. The main reason for such fires – clogged dryers. The building superintendent approached us for quotes for building maintenance. We estimated the building, offered a reasonable price, and proceeded with the service.
#1 solution
The building had 2 types of dryer vents: flex and semi-right type that are not recommended to use by the International dryer installation CODE 1502.2. These two dryer connectors types are not recommended to use:
The building manager refused to replace connection vents with trusted and safety ones. Technicians cleaned those used by the residents.
#2 solution
Dryer Machine Cleaning is as important, as dryer vent cleaning itself. Dryer vents cleaned out from the lint can easily get clogged again if the Dryer Machine (around the engine area) hasn't been cleaned.
#3 solution
Dryer Connector pipe that leads to riser
#4 solution
C,D, E line - 1 riser (130ft); A, B, F line - 2 riser (130ft)
