Dryer Vent Cleaning

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that plugged and dirty clothes dryers are the cause of 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. Prevent this from occurring through dryer vent cleaning and having your dryer vent replaced as needed!

Energy Savings

Dryer Vent CleaningAccording to recent industry studies, an excessively 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.

Don’t know if your dryer vent needs cleaning? It is very easy to recognize the signs for a dirty dryer vent which requires cleaning. They include:

  • Drying times that are longer than 35 minutes
  • Clothes that are extremely hot to the touch after drying
  • Your outside dryer vent flap does not open during a dryer’s operation
  • It has been a year since your last dryer vent cleaning
