THE GOAL OF DRYER VENT CLEANING
Your clothes dryer blows out lint and dirt, most of which will go outside. However, some of it will remain in the vent and build up, eventually putting strain on the machine. If you've found that your dryer takes longer to do its job, or if you've noticed that the lid gets unnaturally hot to the touch, then you should know that these are warning signs. You might even be left with extremely hot, shrunken, and lint-filled clothes the next time you run the dryer. A rise in the electricity bills is another common occurrence.
Without a dryer vent cleaning, you'll be at an increased risk for fires; this is because lint is a flammable material. As a result, the fire safety recommendation is that you get this job done annually.
Another thing to watch out for is mold and mildew growth. These grow wherever there's condensation and high humidity, both of which a dryer vent can provide whenever hot air is coursing through it. Exposure to these fungi can lead to various health conditions, especially in children and in asthma and allergy sufferers.

THE DRYER VENT CLEANING PROCESS
Before the dryer vent cleaning, we'll inspect the vent and determine how extensive the job will be. Some vents are only a foot long and exit out the side of a wall, while others can be dozens of feet long and exit out the roof. After factoring these into the cost, we'll present you with an accurate estimate for you to approve.
No matter the length of your vent, we'll treat every inch of it. Our vacuums will remove the lint and dirt from the vent, transition hose, and wall (or roof) cap. We'll go behind walls and into the attic when necessary. The dryer vent cleaning will end with us treating the area for any mold or mildew. Our company carries EPA-approved antimicrobial chemicals, so these will take care of the job without harming anyone's health.
