Dryer Vent Cleaning
When is the last time you had your dryer vent serviced and cleaned?
Much like your air ducts, you can not see what is inside your dryer and vent. We use special video inspection equipment that allows us to see deep inside your dryer and vent and record all the dirt and debris that is left behind once you’ve completed your laundry and cleared the lint trap. Overtime lint builds up in your dryer and dryer vent which reduces airflow and makes your dryer work harder than it needs to. This can also increase the risk to your dryer overheating causing dryer inefficiencies and in some cases, fires. By cleaning your dryer and dryer vent we can help ensure your home is both safe and energy efficient.
Signs it could be time for a cleaning
If your home is older than 4 years old or has not been inspected regularly it could be time for you to schedule an inspection and cleaning.
Hot to touch!
If the outside of your dryer is hot to the touch or it takes more than one cycle to dry a load of laundry your vent could be clogged.
Is something burning?
If there is a burning smell coming from your dryer you need to contact us as soon as possible! Lint is one of the most flammable items in your home!
Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late!
