Laundry Extract Ventilation Cleaning
One of the most overlooked aspects of fire prevention is the cleaning of laundry extract systems. This is vital for any organisation which processes large quantities of laundry, including laundry service providers, hospitals, hotels, student accommodation and prisons.
Large quantities of laundry, such as bedding and towels in particular, generate a large amount of lint, fibre and dust from the textiles being washed and dried in commercial machines. These impurities collect in the laundry extract system itself and some may get through the filters and infiltrate the main ventilation ductwork system, where they can also accumulate, slowing the system and creating an additional fire hazard.
