Dealing w/ Dryer Exhaust (A lot of lint)
I wanted to run this by everyone, because you have giving me great advice in the past. We have 3 commercial Alliance dryers and they exhaust outside of our property, but it ends up the whole back area get's covered in lint. Previously, someone extending onto the exhaust w/ a type of mesh so it exhaust about a foot off ground level - leaving less to clean up.

I wanted to get another opinion, because the way it was done I was concerned of high static pressure and extra carbon dioxide because of the duct work be restricted with the mesh material.

The only idea I have right now is to fence (8ft.) around the exhaust area and line the fences w/ tennis mesh. So, all I have to do is open a gate and go into vacuum up the lint once a week - instead of having to clean the entire back area everyday.

Do you not have a lint filter in the dryer?
