Dryer Vent Cleaning 2018-02-22T18:28:54+00:00

Dryer Vent Cleaning is often neglected and dryer vent fires are very dangerous. Gas dryers are very susceptible to fires in the venting; electric dryers less so.  This is for two reasons.  First, the lint buildup is excessive, and secondly the vent is too close to combustible framing in the house.  After assessing the job, we will run a brush through the system and clean out the lint and any bird nests that are present.  You will then be given the option of having us install a new plastic or stainless steel vent cover that will facilitate future cleaning.  We can also replace any piping that is unsuitable or does not meet code.  This should be done when you move into a new home.  We can’t give a timeframe for future cleanings as some vents are short and straight and stay fairly clean, and some have a very long length and several elbows which trap lint quickly.  Also, some dryers are used rarely while some are used daily.
