Dryer Vent Cleaning

Dryer vents are one of those “hidden” maintenance items that are often forgotten. The old adage; “out of sight, out of mind” really holds true when it comes to cleaning dryer vents. Unfortunately, neglecting this area of your home can produce harmful and in some instances, even fatal results.

Everyone’s dryer will run more efficiently with yearly dryer vent cleaning. If your dryer vent is over ten feet long, it can become a real fire hazard if left unserviced.

Standard Dryer Vent Cleaning

We use a combination rotary brush, teamed with a high-powered air vac. Our rotary brush system snakes the entire length of your vent at over 500 rpm. We also do the following:

  • Make an initial inspection of the dryer vent
  • Make two full passes with our rotary brush
  • Thoroughly clean your transition duct
  • Clean dryer lint trap below dryer lint screen
  • Vacuum underneath and around your dryer
  • Make a final air-flow check and confirm there is optimum air-flow

Dryer Dismantling Services

Over a period of time, the internal components of a dryer can become contaminated with layers of lint The particles can enter sensitive and critical areas of the dryer where the heating elements are located; thus can jeopardize the safety causing an internal fires to spread quickly.

Dryer Transition Duct Replacement

This is the hose that connects the dryer to the actual dryer vent. If the transition duct is worn, damaged or crushed it can cause some of the same problems as a dirty or clogged dryer vent.

Dryer Vent Booster Fan Replacement

Booster fans are specially designed to solve the problems caused by long dryer vent runs. A pressure sensitive switch automatically starts the fan only when the dryer is running. Hot air from the dryer is then pushed out the exit.

Booster fans should be added to any dryer duct exceeding 25 feet in length. When calculating the length of your vent every 90 degree turn is equal to five feet in length. Example: a 15 foot long vent with two 90 degree bends = 25 feet.
