Dryer Vent Cleaning

Why Regularly Cleaning Your Dryer Vent Is Crucial for Your Safety, Energy Efficiency, and Home Maintenance

Fire prevention:

A clogged dryer vent can become a fire hazard. When lint and other debris accumulate in the vent, it can block the flow of air and cause the dryer to overheat, potentially igniting a fire.


Energy efficiency:

A clogged vent can also cause your dryer to work harder, which means it will use more energy and take longer to dry your clothes.

Extend the life of your dryer:

When your dryer has to work harder to dry your clothes, it can put extra strain on the machine, causing it to wear out faster. Regular vent cleaning can help extend the life of your dryer.

Improved indoor air quality:

A clogged dryer vent can also cause lint and other debris to accumulate in your home’s air ducts, which can reduce indoor air quality and cause respiratory problems.

Overall, cleaning your dryer vent is an important task that can help improve safety, energy efficiency, and the lifespan of your dryer, while also reducing your utility bills and improving indoor air quality.

Common problems

Lint can be built up in your dryer vents for various reasons. Faulty vent caps which are supposed to protect your vent from outside intruders can be clogged with birds and bee nests. These nests can prevent your dryer from venting properly.

Save Energy

We clean our customer’s dryer vents in order to improve drying times of their dryers. This service alone can reduce drying times by as much as 30 minutes in some cases. In most cases our cleaning process allows us to never enter your homes. We enter your vent from the outside of your home and use a special high pressured air cleaning process to force all the lint, bird’s nests, bees nests and any other obstruction out of your vent allowing your dryer to vent properly.
