Professional Dryer Vent Cleaning Services

Residential dryers are used between two to eight or ten times weekly on average, so they collect a lot of lint during the drying process. Some lint might find its way to the lint filter and collect in the dryer vent, leading to restricted airflow. That’s why professional dryer vent cleaning is vital in keeping your clothes dryer functional and free from hazards like dryer fires. Don’t allow your home to become another statistic. For excellent dryer vent cleaning services, call Duct Doctor for an appointment today at a location near you.

Dryer Vent Cleaning Benefits

Save Energy

Dryer vents collect debris and dust that accumulate over time. That leaves less room for exhaust to travel, straining the dryer vent because it has to work harder than usual to remain operational. Consequently, the clothes dryer uses more energy than usual to dry clothes. If you are looking into more energy savings, dryer vent cleaning is vital. A clear dry vent improves exhausted airflow, protecting the dryer from straining, which means the appliance doesn’t use additional energy.

Reduce the Risk of Dryer Fires

Clogged dryer vents increase the risk of house fires substantially, leading to preventable property damage, injury, and death. Professional dryer vent cleaning is an excellent way of reducing the possibility of dryer fires. Lint is a flammable substance, so it’s best to clean the dryer vent at least annually. When you hire dryer vent technicians for cleaning, they remove the kinks and other build-ups, leaving nothing for sparks to catch and reducing the risks of dryer vent fires.

Improve Efficiency

A clogged dryer vent restricts airflow and ultimately increases drying time. The more lint your clothes dryer collects, the less efficiently it performs and longer to dry clothes. Ultimately, you are required to run a second cycle to dry clothes thoroughly. 

Extend Your Dryer’s Lifespan

Clogged dryer vents expose the appliance to wear and tear, increasing the frequency of repairs and chances of premature breakdown. The presence of lint and other obstructions within the vent causes failure of some parts and reduces its lifespan. If you want to extend your dryer’s lifespan and improve its efficiency, ensure that you regularly clean the dryer vent.

Avoid Mold Growth

A properly functioning dryer vent directs moisture from the dryer to the outside. When lint and other blockages clog dryer vents, moisture collects and dampens lint. That creates an ideal environment for organic growth, such as mold and algae.

Simple Tips to Prevent Dryer Vent Clogging

A clogged dryer vent can be frustrating. Here are some simple tips to help you prevent your dryer vent from clogging.

Keep the Floor Clean

Sweep the floor around your dryer to remove dirt and grit. Dryers tend to suck debris surrounding it. It ensures that no dirt gets to your appliance, reducing the possibility of clogging it.

Avoid Dryer Sheets

Dryer sheets give your clothes a fresh smell, but frequent use can clog your dryer vent. It’s best to avoid using dryer sheets entirely to prevent this problem.
