Dryer Vent Cleaning in Chicago
The Brouwer Brothers Steamatic Difference:
Your building’s kitchen, bathroom, and dryer vent exhaust systems accumulate dust, list, and other contaminants that can create serious fire hazards. Over 15,000 structures are damaged each year by dryer vents alone, and in multi-story buildings, duct risers can allow exhaust system fires to easily spread to multiple floors. Are you taking the necessary precautions to keep your building safe and efficient?
Brouwer Brothers Steamatic‘s NADCA certified technicians use the latest technology and equipment to clean your dryer vent systems, your kitchen exhaust systems, and your bathroom exhaust systems.
Whether you own or manage a commercial kitchen or laundry, taking safety precautions is essential to keeping the business open. Routine exhaust system cleaning is critical for not only maintaining a safe, clean environment, but it also shows that you care about the health of your employees and customers. While hood cleaning is mandatory in Illinois, there are additional benefits to keeping the exhaust system up to code.

The benefits of exhaust system cleaning:
- Helps prevent fires caused by lint/debris buildup
- Improves system performance and saves energy
- Extends the life of your equipment
Reduces the Risk of Fire
With the number of meals prepared in the kitchen, grease vapor can build up quickly. Other small particles and dirt can also get pulled up through the hood, fan, and ducts, sticking to the grease. As the grime builds up, it becomes a fire hazard. If it ignites, the fire can spread throughout the building by traveling along the ventilation system. Removing the greasy buildup on these surfaces can help you eliminate a fuel source.
In the laundry room, dust, bits of fabric, dirt, and other tiny pieces of debris can cling to the sides of ductwork. It can build up, becoming flammable, and posing a threat to the entire building. Routine cleaning can ensure the vents and ducts are clear, eliminating the combustible materials.
Improves Exhaust System Performance
Over time, dirty kitchen ventilation systems stop doing their job, and the air may smell stagnant. In the laundry, the carbon monoxide from gas dryers may be trapped indoors as a result of clogged vents. Exposure to this toxic chemical can result in flu-like symptoms and death. Clean, high-performing kitchen and laundry ventilation systems carry odors away, keeping the workspace smelling fresh and improving air quality.
Extends the Life of the Equipment
When ducts are even partially obstructed, the equipment must work harder to push air through the lint, dirt, grease, and particulates than when the ductwork is clear. This extra effort raises energy bills. Components may also wear out faster, which means spending more for replacement parts or even a whole new system.
