CASE STUDY:
4 Risers, Roof Fans, 2 Laundry Dryer Vents, 49 Dryer Vents in apartments in Manhattan Residential Building

Summary
An Upper West Side apartment building has contacted us to clean two dryers. The tenants of these two apartments complained about constantly clogged dryers. The vents were cleaned once a year, but they were getting clogged with lint faster than they should.

According to the technicians, a source of the problem was the risers and clogged roof fans. The Property Manager agreed to the service, and in four days, the team cleaned 29 dryers, risers, and roof fans. Teams of three technicians worked in shifts on the project.

In 2020, the management called us twice to clean the dryers. In 2021, we began to provide a cleaning service for Air Ducts.

In 2021 we became a vendor for dryer vent cleaning, riser, and roof fans cleaning.

After the service, we sent reports by email with photos of dryers, risers, and ducts before and after the service with recommendations for preventive maintenance.

For past services for particular tenants, we send an e-contract by email about the tenant and the service provided directly to the Property Manager. So the administration can save time on collecting contracts from tenants and on sorting and assigning papers. We provide this service for the convenience of the management company.
Facts about home clothes dryer fires listed at The U.S. Fire Administration
- 2,900 home clothes dryer fires are reported each year and cause an estimated 5 deaths, 100 injuries, and $35 million in property loss.
- Failure to clean the dryer (34 percent) is the leading cause of home clothes dryer fires.
- More home clothes dryer fires occur in the fall and winter months, peaking in January.
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 management was concerned about the frequent fires in New York City residential buildings. The main reason for such fires - clogged dryers. In two apartments, dryer vents got clogged faster than usual, even if all the dryers in the building were cleaned regularly. We cleaned the two dryer vents and found that the riser was clogged, which was the source of the clogged vents.
Solution
We estimated the building and agreed to service four risers and all the roof fans that have been clogged even though the building was built in 2009 and have been serviced regularly, except for the riser part.
