Dryer Vent Cleaning
Every year, thousands of house fires occur due to clogged clothes dryer vents, resulting in tragic deaths, painful injuries, loss of personal property, and costly remodeling. Read on to learn how cleaning your lint screen just simply isn't enough to prevent these destructive and deadly fires from happening.
What Is Professional Dryer Vent Cleaning?
After inspecting your dryer and vent system, we utilize special equipment that allows us to force air through your dryer's entire ventilation system carefully, without making a mess. These tools enable us to efficiently remove built up lint and debris that clog the airway in your dryer's vent work. The end result is a safer, cleaner, better functioning dryer vent that significantly reduces the risk of a fire occurring.
Why Do I Need My Dryer Vent Professionally Cleaned?
Did you know that only 25% of the lint from your clothes is collected by your dryer's lint trap? The rest of the lint is sucked through the vent, which collects on the inside of the duct system. This is especially true if you use fabric softener in your laundry, as it adds a greasy film to the lint, enabling it to get stuck more easily to other debris and create blockages.
Advantages of Professional Dryer Vent Cleaning
Not only do your energy costs rise as your dryer works harder due to reduced air flow, it increases your chance of a deadly fire happening. By having your dryer's vent professionally cleaned, you're prolonging the life of your dryer by reducing the stress caused by restricted ventilation, lowering home energy costs, and significantly reducing your chances of a fire.
We encourage our clients to regularly clean the lint catcher before each dryer cycle and to inspect the exit pipe of the vent system for any built up debris, taking care to clean it regularly. Give us a call when it's time for a deep, professional dryer vent cleaning, which we can do in as little as 30 minutes. Depending on how frequently you use your dryer, inspection and vent cleaning is recommended anywhere from every month to every year.
