Dryer Vent Cleaning

Protect your home from fire

DId you know that your dryer vent is a hidden fire hazard? Lint screens often trap only 75% of the total lint produced by your dyer. The rest builds up in your dryer vent, creating a fire hazard. A clogged dryer vent also makes your dryer run longer as it works harder to remove moisture through a blocked tube, increasing your utility bills.

Cleaning your dryer vents can help:

  • Drastically reduce the risk of fire in your home. 
  • Reduce your utility bills.
  • Increase the length of your dryers operating life.
  • Reduce the time required to dry your clothes.
  • Reduce the number of repairs needed to your dryer.

    FAQ

    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 fires vs. gas dryers. This means that your dryer could easily be the number 1 fire hazard in your home.

    How do I Tell if I Need my Dryer Vent Cleaned?

    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. 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 our kinked ducting can exacerbate the issue, causing faster buildup of lint. Because of this, it’s important to have your vent 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 over the long term. Thus, getting your dryer vent professionally cleaned is a must to reduce the risk of fire.
