Dryer Vent Cleaning

Most people assume that cleaning the lint trap after every laundry load (which is definitely a good idea) is enough to keep all lint and debris out of their dryer vent system. Unfortunately, this is not true. Lint is small enough to make it through even the fine mesh of the lint trap, and over time, enough lint can build up to the point where begins causing problems with your dryer.

Why Is Dryer Vent Cleaning Important?

Any lint that manages to escape the lint trap on your dryer, winds up getting blown back into the dryer vent hose. Because these hoses have many ridges, lint buildup can happen quite quickly, and it can lead to some serious problems.

This becomes especially true if your dryer vent needs to turn any corners, or create any other “stops” between the dryer itself and the vent outside. In fact, dryer vent lint buildup is often listed as a cause of house fires.

The dryer not only vents air, but also heat. Because lint is highly flammable, if enough of it builds up, and if enough heat is produced by the dryer, it could cause enough of a spark to create a fire.

Professional dryer vent cleaning eliminates this risk.
