Dryer Vent Cleaning

According to F.E.M.A. ( Topical Fire Research Series, Volume 7, Issue 1 / January 2007), annually 12,700 clothes dryer fires occur in residential buildings resulting in 15 deaths and 300 injuries
with “Failure to clean” as the leading factor.

Not only are clogged dryer vents dangerous, they cost you money as well.

A clogged dryer vent requires the dryer motor to work harder to force the moist air to the outside.

By working harder, the motor will wear out sooner.

The additional drying time uses more electricity and/or gas.

Small animals like birds and squirrels love to nest in the duct work because its warm, moist, and relatively safe for them. This also causes a disturbance in the smooth flow of air from the dryer.

By having your dryer vent cleaned on a regular basis, you can eliminate these factors which can be a danger to your family and home.  It will also save you time and money.

Having your dryer vent cleaned:

Allows your dryer to operate more efficiently, using less energy and saving you money.

Helps clothes dry faster—a time saver for busy families.

Helps preserve clothing, as the life of many fabrics is damaged by excessive high heat.

Signs your dryer vent needs cleaning:

Dryer is still producing airflow, no heat. It takes longer and longer to dry clothes, especially towels and jeans or any other article of clothing.

Clothes are damp or hotter than usual at the end of the cycle.

Outdoor flapper on vent hood doesn't open when dryer is on.

Airflow in the vent seems low.
