ARE YOUR CLOTHES TAKING MORE THAN ONE CYCLE?
IT MAY BE TIME TO HAVE YOUR DRYER VENT CLEANED.
Improved dryer efficiency
Plugged or partially plugged dryer vents can result in increased operating costs with longer drying times. This will also cause premature failure of components or the dryer. Overheating can also cause unnecessary wear and tear on clothing, thus shorting their life.
Avoid risk of fire
Fires can occur when lint builds up in the dryer or in the exhaust duct. Lint is highly combustible and can block the flow of air, cause excessive heat build-up, and result in a fire. Most dryer duct lines run between the walls and floors of a home and this fire can quickly spread through the rest of the home. Even though dryers have built in high temperature limit switches they often fail and cannot be relied on to provide total protection. According to the the Department of Energy, each year about 15,000 fires start in dryers and cause 10 to 20 deaths in the United States.
What can you do?
Check and clean the outside dryer vent exhaust for obstructions and make sure the flapper opens and closes properly. If the flapper is not fully closing, birds and other rodents can nest in the dryer vent line.
Clean behind and around the dryer where lint can build up. Keep the area around the dryer clean and free of lint and clutter.
Replace old style flexible plastic/vinyl hose with corrugated or foil hose. The plastic/vinyl hose is no longer allowed in most states and is not fireproof and can actually cause a fire to start and spread quicker.
The interior of the dryer chassis should be cleaned by a qualified service person periodically. Lint and debris will build up inside the dryer as well as in the dryer duct.
How we clean your dryer vent
TURNING THE DRYER ON
First our technicians will ask you to turn your dryer on or they can come in and turn it on for you. This is to aid in removing all lint from your dryer vent and testing the efficiency of your dryer after the cleaning.
REVERSE AIR HOSE & SPIN BRUSH
To clean your dryer, we use high powered compressed air and our reverse air hose and feed it through the line to the dryer. This blows all lint outside so no mess is made within your home. In some cases, the dryer vent has moisture that causes lint build up. If necessary we use our spin brush to remove any hard clogs.
PICK UP & PAYMENT
After the dryer vent is cleaned, we pick up any large amounts of lint and dispose of them. For payment, we can take cash, check or card, whatever is most convenient for you.
