Dryer Vent Cleaning

Cleaning your dryer vent every 6-12 months can...

+ Increase dryer efficiency

+ Reduce dryer energy costs

+ Insure safety by reducing fire risk

+ Speed up drying time

+ Extend dryer life

+ Reduce lint remaining on clothes




Dryer vents accumulate highly flammable lint, and failure to clean out lint is the leading cause of dryer fires. According to the National Fire Protection Agency, over 15, 000 dryer fires occurred in the U.S. in 2010. A plugged dryer vent can also burn out the heating element. Lint and other debris can build up in your dryer hose and vent duct, reducing air flow, backing up exhaust gases and eventually creating a fire. These hazards can be avoided by thoroughly inspecting and cleaning your dryer vent every year. Not only are you reducing the risk of fire, you’re also putting money back into your wallet by improving the dryer’s efficiency.

A telltale sign that the dryer vent needs cleaning is that clothes take longer and longer to dry. When it takes 2-3 cycles to dry a load of towels, it’s time to check things out.
