Multi-Unit Dryer Vent Cleaning For Wisconsin Landlords and Condominium Associations
Like many states, Wisconsin requires multi-unit buildings to be free of fire hazards. This includes lint buildup in dryer vents, of course. Condominiums, apartments, dormitories, retirement homes--anyplace with multiple living units needs to have its dryer vents cleaned on a regular basis to minimize the risk of fire caused by lint buildup in vent lines.
Dryer Vent Wizard of Wisconsin Multi-Unit Building Cleaning Service
If you own or manage a building with multiple residences, you need a professional cleaning service. There is just too great a risk of a lawsuit if you hire an unlicensed, uninsured Mr. Fix It for the job. If they fail to thoroughly clean the vent lines and a fire breaks out, there’s not only the risk of serious property damage (maybe even total destruction), but also loss of life.
So who should you hire for the job? Well, Dryer Vent Wizard is the only cleaner in Wisconsin focused solely on dryer vent cleaning. No one knows dryer vents like we do. In addition to cleaning vent lines, we also install, reroute and repair dryer vent lines. If we find the vent lines in your building aren’t up to code, or are damaged in a way that could cause problems, we can repair or replace them on the spot.
Professional Vent Cleaning Technicians Put Residents At Ease
When Dryer Vent Wizards show up for a job, they’re in uniform and behind the wheel of a company truck. Residents suspicious of strangers in or around their home know instantly it’s not some sort of scam to get into their units and rob them (or worse).
If you haven't had the dryer vent lines at your building(s) cleaned in more than a year, it's time. Fire Marshalls all across the country recommend having dryer vent lines cleaned at least once per year to minimize the risk of fires caused by lint clogs igniting. Don't take chances with the lives of your tenants or your property. Have the dryer vents cleaned.
Safer Buildings, Lower Energy Bills and Happier Tenants
Dryer vent cleaning not only minimizes the risk of fire, it also makes clothes dryers operate more efficiently. With an unobstructed flow of air through the vent line, dryers run more efficiently. No more multiple cycles in the dryer to get a load of clothes dry. And that means lower energy bills. Ultimately, it also means happier tenants and residents.
Don't Risk Being Sued Over a Fire Caused by Dryer Vent Blockage
Property managers and owners, along with their insurance companies, risk huge losses if a fire breaks out in a multi-unit due to a lint-clogged dryer vent. Buildings can and do burn down because of dryer fires, and property owners and managers are sued. Worse yet, people have died in these fires.
Perfect example: In August, 2016 a tenant in a Martinsburg, West Virginia apartment building filed suit against Long & Foster Real Estate and Samsung Electronics America after fire investigators determined the fire was caused by a blocked dryer vent. The tenant's suit accuses the management company of failing to have the dryer vent cleaned before she moved in, as well as the dryer manufacturer (Samsung). She's claiming a $120,000 loss and is also seeking damages for negligence and breach of contract.
The moral of this story is simple: Don't take chances with your property! Having the dryer vents cleaned on a yearly basis is a minimal investment in the safety of your tenants and your peace of mind.
