Dryer Vent Cleaning

  Dryer Vent Cleaning is an important part of any homeowner's maintenance checklist, but is often overlooked. Though we understand that servicing the dryer vent may not seem like a priority when weighed against other home services, the truth of the matter is that this could be a costly oversight.

 

Signs that your dryer vent needs cleaning

 

1. Drying times that surpass 35-40 minutes.

2. Clothes that are abnormally hot to the touch after drying.

3. Your vent hood flap does not open during a dryer’s operation.

4. It has been a year since your last dryer vent cleaning.

 

 

  • Fire Prevention The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that clothes dryers are associated with approximately 15,600 fires yearly. Fires can occur when lint builds up in the dryer or in the exhaust duct. Lint can block the flow of air, cause excessive heat build-up, and result in a fire in some dryers.  
  • Energy Savings According to recent industry studies, an excessivly clogged dryer vent may add an additional $18-$24 dollars to your home's energy bill. That translates to almost $300 a year in unnecessary fees. Most dryer vent cleaning bills come well below this $300 mark, so it only makes sense to follow dryer manufacturer recommendations and have the cleaning performed once a year.
