When looking at your dryer vents, lint is the enemy. You may think that the lint trap catches all of it, but a significant amount gets past and builds up in the the dryer vent. The more lint there is in your dryer vents, the less effective the vents are. Lint balls are extremely flammable and build-up can lead to many potential problems, including fire at the worst and dirty carpets that need cleaning at minimum.
Dryer vents should be cleaned at least once every one to two years; however, some vents require even more frequent cleanings.
How your vents will be cleaned:
We will inspect to see if there is proper airflow in the dryer vents, as well as check to see if the right equipment is in use. The dryer vents will be cleaned using a high pressure, compressed air machine, typically called a jet-snake. This reverse air tool will blast away loose lint, debris, and any other harmful blockages in your vent, forcing it outside. Our technicians will catch all the dirt and debris in a bag and dispose of it.
The jet-snake is able to turn corners, and is flexible enough to get behind the dryer. Additionally, we also have other equipment to deal with a variety of other dryer vent clogs, such as birds nesting in the vents. Having your dryer vents professionally cleaned will reduce the chances of a fire hazard, increase the lifespan of the dryer, and also increase the efficiency of the dryer.
According to national statistics, 15,000 dryer fires happen every year. Get your dryer vents cleaned and don’t become a statistic !
