Cleaning your clothes dryer vents will make the machine run more efficiently, hold down utility costs, and reduce the chance of a fire, not uncommon in clothes dryers.
Dryers cause thousands of fires each year, leading to deaths, injuries and millions of dollars in property damage. The leading items first ignited in dryer fires were lint, dust or fiber.

Lint traps are good, but they don’t catch all the lint, even if you clean the duct trap before every use.
Lint gets behind your dryer and builds up in the hose and vent. Other debris works its way into these areas, too –- paper you left in the pockets of your pants, for example.
Eventually the lint balls up and clogs the dryer. The machinery then needs more time to properly dry your clothes – and runs up your utility bill.
Worse yet, it can become a fire hazard as the heat builds up in the dryer.
The technicians at Dryer Ducts do a first-rate job of cleaning dryer systems.
They use high-tech tools to clean behind the dryer and suck out lint from the dryer vent and hose.
Soon enough, your dryer is working better and using less power, and you’re not worrying about a fire.

Here’s what you get when our experienced technicians go to work:
• We move the dryer to make sure we capture every bit of lint and dirt lurking behind it. (We hunt down every pesky dust bunny in your laundry room and we capture it with our equipment!)
When the vent is clogged, lint accumulates behind your dryer. This impedes airflow that normally would send the lint outside your home.
• We clean the filter and we clean the duct after we pull the pipe away from the wall. Special equipment lets us clean hard-to-reach spaces.
• We examine the vent to make sure it doesn’t have holes. And we measure the airflow to make sure the machine is working at full efficiency.
• We check the venting system behind the dryer to see if it is damaged or restricted by debris.
• We cover the outside wall dampers to prevent dirt, snow, rain and unwanted animals from getting inside.
• If you wish, we replace the current venting with modern, non-ribbed, rigid metal duct that works more efficiently. Plastic or foil vents have nooks and crannies where lint can accumulate, and they are more susceptible to heat.
• We conduct a final run-through, put the dryer back in its original place and we reconnect it. (If your dryer runs on gas, we make sure it is properly reconnected, avoiding any gas leak.)
As you can see, we do more than clean out dryer vents. We give you a cleaner, safer laundry – one less worry in these stressful times.

"Have your dryer cleaned regularly by a professional, especially if it is taking longer than normal for clothes to dry." The Fire Administration Agency.
"The leading cause of home clothes dryer fires is failure to clean them... The leading factor contributing to the ignition of home fires involving clothes dryers was failure to clean, accounting for one-third (33 percent) of dryer fires." The National Fire Protection Association
Now you know why manufacturers warn you against leaving the dryer running when you’re not home!
BTW, washing machines are involved in far fewer fires than dryers. Washing machine fires generally begin with a mechanical or electrical failure or a malfunction.
There are several warning signals when your dryer acts up.
• Are lint and debris accumulating around the outside vent?
• Is the clothing extra hot when you remove it from the dryer?
• Is the dryer itself unusually hot?
• Can you smell something burning?
• Are the clothes still soggy at the end of the usual drying time?
Remember: Not only will a clogged vent cause utility bills to rise but also the extra tumbling can pill or otherwise damage your favorite clothes because the drying process is taking too long.
Lint may not be the main culprit.
Sometimes the hose to the vent gets crumpled or twisted, especially if the duct to the dryer connection is made from flexible or even semi-rigid material.
If the dryer isn’t performing well it may be due to an unusually long venting duct or too many “elbows” where the duct changes directions and can lose momentum. You’re more likely to see this in older homes.
For most dryers, the recommended vent run should be no longer than 25 feet.
Another possible problem: The dryer is vented into the attic instead of outside, which is where it should go.
Venting it into the attic puts more moisture up there, where mildew and mold can grow on the wood and insulation. That uphill route also makes your dryer’s motor work harder, raising your utility bill and shortening the life expectancy of your dryer.
If possible, you want the dryer vent rerouted so it empties outdoors rather than in the attic.
Call us and we will help you make these sensible changes.
We’re not somebody running a business from a truck. We’re insured and licensed. And we guarantee our work!
