Dryer Vent Cleaning
According to the National Fire Protection Association, nearly 17,000 home clothes dryer fires are reported each year. These clothes dryer fires cause around 51 deaths, 380 injuries, and $236 million in property loss. Dryer vents accumulate highly flammable lint, and failure to clean out the lint can cause a very dangerous situation such as a fire or even a release of deadly carbon monoxide into your home. Failure to properly clean a dryer vent can also cause the heating element to burn out.
Dryer exhaust vents should be inspected and cleaned at least once a year depending on the size of the household and dryer usage. Some of the signs that the dryer vent needs cleaning is if the clothes are still damp after the dryer has gone through an entire drying cycle or clothes take longer than normal to dry. Another sign is that the dryer feels hotter than normal when it is in use, signaling a restriction in the dryer vent.
Our technicians will completely service your dryer and dryer vent by visually inspecting the outside vent opening and remove any obstructions such as animal nests. We will then use professional brushes and flexible rods that are powered by a rotating tool to clean the exhaust vents while a HEPA powered vacuum collect the lint as it is driven loose. Once the vent is cleaned, our professionals will remove any residual lint from behind the dryer and completely clean the exhaust port on the dryer cabinet. All service performed will be documented for the homeowner on a detailed report.
