Dryer Vent Cleaning

A plugged dryer vent can cause excessive heat  build  up  within  the vent  itself and the drying  appliance , resulting  in possible fire.

A dirty  vent, however, is only one link in possible  chain of  events that  may include: excessive lint build up inside  the  dryer , a missing  or  damaged lint  screen , a  crushed hose behind the  dryer and a failure of  thermostat  and limit  switch in  the  dryer.

How  often  do  dryer vents need cleaning?

The more efficiently a dryer vent exhausts air, the less lint build up in it. Generally, short exhaust  better than  long ones and  full  size  dryers exhaust better than smaller stack dryers. For obvious reasons , newer dryers may  exhaust better than  older ones. Vents with  multiple turns and  elbows are  likely to  build up  more  lint. Very  short vents attached  to full size  dryers may rarely need cleaning. Most vents, however, require annual cleaning.

 

Is vinyl or foil ducting safe?

No. Plastic or  foil flexible duct ( cheap and easy to install ) might seem like just the  thing for exhausting a dryer, it isn’t. This  type of exhaust duct , which resembles a plastic covered slinky toy can pose  a serious  fire hazard since it is susceptible  to heat failure , collapse and generally causes an undue amount  of lint to adhere to it’s inner surface thereby prone to becoming completed clogged.

"A friend of mine works in insurance, and he suggested that I clean vents of Dryer machines in a facility that I run. Before this, I didn't even realize they needed cleaning. I found this site on the internet and gave them a call. The person on the phone was very nice and explained everything to me. When technicians arrived and done their job, they showed me what they got out of the vents. I was shocked to see how much stuff they removed. The job was done nice and quick, dealing with them was very simple and now I have one less problem to worry about."
