Why Should I Clean My Dryer Vents?
Clean your dryer vent yearly to prevent the vent from getting blocked or having reduced airflow. A blockage or reduction in airflow from your dryer can cause it to overheat, potentially resulting in your dryer catching fire.
The Consumer Products Safety Commission reports estimated annual totals of 15,500 fires, 10 deaths, and 310 injuries associated with clothes dryers.
Who Needs This Service?
Anyone that has a dryer vent. This service should be completed yearly, so be sure to ask about getting on our annual cleaning schedule. Some things to look for that might indicate that your dryer is not working properly:
- Slow dry times
- Dryer vent flapper is closed and will not stay open while the dryer is running
- Clothes from the dryer are hotter than normal
What is the Method Used?
We use an industry leading machine called the Ductmaster, one of the most powerful vacuums available. We combine this powerful machine with a mechanical tool to release the link from the inside of the vent. We then test the vent to make sure it has proper airflow.
Cleaning your dryer vent will also save you money because a clean dryer vent allows your dryer to run its cycle more quickly. This service will pay for itself and give you peace of mind knowing that your home is safe from a dryer fire.
