FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long will the dryer vent cleaning take?
Typically a clothes dryer vent cleaning takes about an hour to complete. Depending on the accessibility of your dryer vent, it might take a little longer.
Dryer vents on a second floor that snake through the attic and or walls with multiple bends take slightly longer and require a little more complex cleaning process.
How can I tell if my dryer vent needs cleaning?
An easy way to determine if your vent needs cleaning is if it takes more than one cycle to dry a load of clothes, especially heavy items, such as towels or jeans.
Another way might be that the dryer itself feels hotter than usual. Clothes might also be very hot and still damp at the end of the cycle.
A final clue might be that there is no lint on the lint screen. This usually indicates the exhaust system is clogged.
A red flag is if you are smelling a burning smell when you are using the dryer.
Why is cleaning your clothes dryer vent so important?
A dirty dryer vent can be a serious fire hazard. The Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that dryers are associated with roughly 15,600 fires each year.

How Do You Clean The Dryer Vent?

My Dryer Does Not Seem To Dry My Clothes That Well. Am I In Need Of A New Dryer?
Not necessarily. Clogged dryer ducts or improperly installed ducts will prevent your dryer from efficiently drying your clothes. Consider calling us before purchasing a new dryer. Many folks purchase new dryers when the problem is really the venting.
If this is the case, the new dryer still will not dry the clothes, and people end up calling us to have their clothes dryer vents cleaned anyway. We suggest having your dryer vents cleaned first.
I am going To Buy A New Clothes Dryer, So I Don’t Really Need To Worry About Having My Vent Cleaned, Right?
During a new dryer purchase, it is a perfect time for a visit from one of our trained service professionals to inspect and clean your dryer vent so that your new dryer can operate at maximum efficiency. Some of the newer dryers are designed to shut down when the dryer duct does not allow proper airflow for the dryer to work safely and efficiently.
This is a safety feature and can only be fixed by giving the dryer adequate airflow through the dryer duct.
