Clogged dryer vents are one of the leading causes of house fires. As lint gets trapped and ignites due to the intense amount of heat generated by the appliance. Drye vent cleaning should be done on an annual basis to help not only prevent future fire damage, but to help your drying machine run more efficiently.

Your dryer may get really hot. You may also smell a slight burning odor when drying laundry.

Effective Dryer Vent Cleaning Solutions

There are many options to clean a dryer vent, including the do it yourself method using a drill. While these methods may be effective if your dryer is vented to an outside wall, they may not be completely effective if your machine ventilates upwards into the ceiling. We use a high powered truck mounted vacuum unit, which is powerful enough to pull 90% of the lint out of the vent, leaving the pathway clean and clear.  We use a brush and thoroughly clean the dryer vent, removing the lint and dust.
