Dryer Vent Cleaning

Your dryer vent propels lint out of your home through an air vent. Even though it does its job well, lint can still build up and lead to a fire. There are more than 15,000 dryer fires per year, and the amount of time it takes to complete a load of clothing can be a great indicator of how clogged your dryer vents may be.

Why Dryer Vent Cleaning is Needed

Dryer vent cleaning not only reduces the risk of fire, but it also makes your dryer more efficient. If the dryer cannot expel the lint, it has to work longer and harder. This will cause the dryer to wear out more quickly than it would otherwise. It also costs you significantly more in utility bills each year.

How Dryer Vent Cleaning Works

Dryer vent cleaning is similar to air duct cleaning. The technician will use a brush to knock the dryer lint off the interior of the vent and will the use a powerful vacuum to suck the lint out of the duct.

The next step is to clean the lint trap. This is dryer vent cleaning method is done by using a brush to scrub the mesh and then a cleaning agent to wash any unseen substances trapped in the lint trap. Vinegar is a good choice for this as it is readily available and also non-toxic.

After cleaning the trap, the technician will clean the trap housing. A brush is used to sweep out any remaining lint and then a vacuum is used to remove any dirt and debris.

Once this process is completed, the technician will reattach the components of the dryer and test the appliance to make sure it is working properly. Not only do you receive peace of mind that the appliance is functioning at peak capacity, but you can rest easy knowing the chance of fire is minimal.
