Dryer Vent Cleaning

Are you running the dryer for a normal amount of time, and still finding damp clothes and

 towels once the dryer stops or do you have water in your flex vent? That doesn't mean

you need a new dryer. It just means you have a clog.

This is why we do not recommend cleaning your dryer vents yourself.

This layer of lint was taken off of a dryer heater. As you can see it has already started to burn. Its just as important to have the dryer casing opened and the belts and thermostats cleaned as it is to have the wall vent professionally snaked from the ground and the roof.

 
 
 
 
 
 

Dryer vents are the one aspect of home maintenance that is continuously overlooked. Since the dryer vents are out of sight and out of mind, homeowners do not think to pull out the dryer and give this area a regular cleaning. This is a serious mistake, as allowing a buildup to occur can have devastating results.


According to FEMA, almost 15,600 residential fires are reported every year which are directly related to dryers. These fires cause approximately over 100 injuries and about five deaths every year. The percentages of fires are at the highest in January, accounting for about 11 percent of the yearly total. Of all of these fires, about 34 percent are attributed to a dirty dryer vent.


In addition to the fire concerns are performance concerns. If the vent is not clean, it will hinder the dryer’s ability to properly dry your clothing. One cycle may not be enough to get the clothing dry, resulting in the dryer running more than is usually necessary. This, obviously, will lead to higher energy bills every month, putting extra stress on the family’s overall finances.
