Dryer Vent Cleaning

In 2010-2014, U.S. fire departments responded to an estimated average of 15,970 home structure fires involving clothes dryers or washing machines each year. The vast majority of fires (92%) involved clothes dryers. (National Fire Protection Association)

How to know it’s time to clean your dryer vent

  1. Drying time for clothes takes longer and longer.
  2. Your clothing and the outside of the dryer are very hot.
  3. You notice a burning smell.
  4. The vent hood flap doesn’t open properly.
  5. It’s been longer than a year since your last inspection.

Some of the DIY cleaning kits do not always properly clean the vent duct. One advantage to hiring an experienced professional is that he or she has likely seen just about every make and model of dryer and has the appropriate brush and equipment to effectively do the job.
