Our cleaning and other environmental services are backed by more than two decades of experience.
Whether your dryer vent is 1 foot or 40 feet long, the dryer vent cleaning process is virtually the same in every case. First, let us explain why this job is so important.
Why Get Dryer Vent Cleaning?
The dryer vent is what extends from the back of your clothes dryer to the exterior of your home. In most cases, it vents out of the side, but some homes have an intricate venting system that snakes all the way up to their roof. The vent blows out lint, dirt, and hot air, and while most of it will be ejected, some of it will remain inside the vents and build up. Lint is a flammable material, which is why the fire safety recommendation is that you get a dryer vent cleaning once a year.
Such buildup will also interfere with the dryer's performance. It can lead to longer drying times, unnaturally hot clothes, an excess of lint on clothes, and an overheating machine. You might notice a spike in your electricity bill.
The combination of hot air and moisture is a bad one; if the moisture condenses, it can act as a catalyst for mold and mildew growth. Mold is a fungus that thrives in dark, damp, enclosed areas, and a serious mold infestation can lead to flu-like symptoms and even neurological issues.

Dryer Vent Cleaning Process
Leave it to AdvantaClean to inspect every inch of your dryer vent. We can even go behind the walls and inside the attic to reach a particularly long vent. The first step in dryer vent cleaning is to vacuum up all the lint. We'll detach the vent from the transition hose and scrape away any dirt and grime that has become caked on to the surface.
Our team, which consists of several certified mold remediation specialists, will remove mold spores using HEPA-filtered vacuums. Afterward, to sanitize the affected areas, we'll treat them with an EPA-approved antimicrobial chemical. We can end by cleaning the dryer vent cap.
