Article Summary: 

Many commercial entities with on-site laundry facilities, from laundromats and hotels to apartment complexes and gyms, face an increased risk of fire due to dryer vents accumulating lint, which is highly flammable. Thousands of these blazes cause an estimated C$43 million in property damage and 100 injuries annually. These fires are preventable by regularly cleaning the dryer vents and emptying the lint collection device after every load. Commercial customers should be aware of warning signs that vents need cleaning, and common-sense precautions should also be taken during laundry processing to avoid dryer fires. If a fire does occur, Paul Davis promises to arrive quickly and handle any size loss.
