Dryer Vent Cleaning Service         

Any of these sound familiar?

These are some of our most common customer complaints that it is time to have the dryer vent/duct cleaned.

Most people don't know that your dryer filter only collects roughly 75% of the lint and the rest is hopefully blown out through the dryer duct and out the external vent on the side of the house or on the roof. Our experience is that this is not the case. Over time, it fills with lint that sneaks by your dryer's filters. Overheating comes next as the lint builds up. Now you're just a step away from a duct fire. Sounds ridiculous? Here are some real facts:

The Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that over 24,000 dryer related fires occur each year. The most frequent starting point for these fires was the dryer vent area. The dryer overheats, the lint catches fire and the fire is then helped by combustibles in the immediate area (these fires can smolder for hours going unnoticed until after you have gone to bed or left your house).

Fortunately, removing this danger from your home is neither complicated, nor expensive. Removing the lint will result in the dryer running cheaper, since it will take less energy to get your clothes dry. Drying times can be shorter, allowing you to spend less time in the laundry area. Lastly, the dryer itself will last longer since it is not being stressed by the higher operating temperatures caused by the lint build up.

We start from behind the dryer. We clean the complete vent run from behind the dryer clear through to the exhaust on the outside - no matter where it exists, roof or side. We also clean down below the lint trap in the dryer.

Our specialized equipment thoroughly cleans the entire vent system from the dryer to the exhaust vent hood, effectively removing lint buildup and allowing the dryer to operate at peak efficiency. Customers experience the immediate benefits of reduced drying time and energy savings, while receiving the long term benefits of reduced dryer damage and greatly reduced fire hazard.

When dryers take longer than one cycle to dry clothes, the amount of wasted energy can be substantial. This results in using two times, three times, or four times more energy than is needed to dry clothes. Vent Care service operators provide professional service and can identify any problems which may be present in dryer ventilation systems. Most houses, condominiums, and apartments have never had their vents cleaned and by having them delinted regularly, most dryer problems could be prevented.
