Dryer Vent Cleaning
Protect your home from fire
Did you know that your dryer vent is a hidden fire hazard? A lint filter will often trap only 75% of the total lint produced by your dyer. The rest builds up in your dryer hose and vent, creating a fire hazard. A clogged dryer vent without proper ventilation also makes your dryer run longer as it works harder to remove moisture through a blocked tube, increasing your utility bills.
Dryer vent cleaning can help:
Drastically reduce the risk of dryer fires in your home.
Lower energy bills.
Increase the lifespan of your clothes dryer.
Reduce the time required to dry clothes.
Reduce the number of repairs needed to your dryer and the likelihood that you’ll need a new dryer sooner.

Is My Risk of Fire Lower With an Electric vs. a Gas Dryer?
According to The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (USCPC), electric dryers are actually 2.5 times more likely to cause a dryer fire vs. gas dryers. This means that your dryer could easily be the number one fire hazard in your home.
How do I Tell if I Have Clogged Dryer Vents?
If your laundry room becomes more humid while drying clothes than normal, this could be a sign that the moisture isn’t being removed via the vent, and that the vent is clogged with lint, causing more damp air to become trapped in your clothes. Also, clothes taking longer than usual to dry, or coming out wet, is another sign that your dryer is struggling to dry them because of an inability to safely remove moisture from the machine. If you smell a burnt smell while your clothes are drying, or your clothes come out hotter than usual, these almost always indicate that your dryer vent is dirty.
How Often Does a Dryer Vent Need Cleaning?
You should have your dryer vent inspected and cleaned every two years to prevent buildups of lint. Other circumstances, such as crushing kinked ducting, can exacerbate the issue, causing faster buildup of lint. Because of this, it’s important to have your vent hood flap inspected as well as cleaned to be certain you don’t have an issue causing faster than normal buildup.
Is Cleaning Out the Lint Screen Enough to Prevent Fires?
Although lint screens trap the bulk of the lint that comes off your clothes while they’re drying, they don’t get it all. The remainder must go through the venting system. A clean lint screen catches, on average, about three quarters of the lint that comes off your clothes. This efficiency is reduced when the screen isn’t cleaned. However, although cleaning the screen in between loads is absolutely necessary, it’s not enough in and of itself to prevent buildup of flammable lint over the long term. Thus, getting professional dryer vent cleaning services are a must to reduce the risk of fire.
