Dryer Vent Cleaning
Let’s be honest: you probably wouldn’t hire a service just to clean the dryer vent in your laundry room. But this unglamorous task is often all that separates you from perpetually damp clothing at best and a house fire at worst. While dryer lint traps catch most of the lint particles from your laundry, they aren’t perfect. They do their best, but as so often is the case, it is not always enough. Over time, the remaining lint builds up and collects in your dryer ducts over time, and it is extremely flammable.
The combination of flammable lint and the hot air that runs through the vent is a hazardous combination to say the least. That is why we recommend regular dryer vent cleaning for all homeowners.
Look for these warning signs to determine if your dryer vent is in need of a cleaning:
- Clothes don’t dry completely or they take longer to dry
- Clothes feel hotter than normal at the end of the drying cycle
- The outside of the dryer gets very hot
- Humidity in the laundry room increases
- There is a burnt smell in the laundry room
