This pictures indicates the amount of lint that can be extracted from a commercial dryer ducting system. Regular maintenance reduces risk.

Most dryer fires occur from a build-up of lint within the ducting system. Unable to properly vent, the temperature rises to a dangerous level eventually overheating which can ignite into a fire. SERVPRO of Carbondale/Clarks Summit/Old Forge have been called to several dryer fires in the Scranton area due to the lint traps and duct lines not be cleaned after every use.
The picture below is lint and dust that our machine was able to extract from a commercial dryer ducting system following a recent service call at a hotel in Scranton. For commercial buildings it is recommended that a preventive service agreement be established for regular service. The more the use the greater build-up of lint as evidence in this picture.
SERVPRO of Carbondale/Clarks Summit/Old Forge provides preventive service agreements to several Lackawanna County apartment buildings, senior centers and hotels to be pro-active in preventing disasters.
