When Did You Last Carry out Dryer Vent Cleaning?
Dryer Vent Cleaning WILL Save You Money Through Lower Utility Costs, and Reduce the Risk of Fire!
Is your dryer taking twice as long to get through one load of laundry? Do you need to do an extra cycle just to get your fabrics dried up and ready for folding? If you answered yes to any of the previous questions, you may have a dirty and clogged dryer vent in your hands which needs professional attention.
Having lint on dryer vents is not unusual. Whenever you use your dryer, lint from the clothes and other fabrics that are being dried is sucked by the fan motor of the dryer and settles on the vent hose outside. As time goes by, the build up gets thicker and this affects your dryer’s performance.

Dryer Taking a Long Time to Dry Each Load?
Many people think their dryer is just old and that’s why each load takes a long time. However the truth is your dryer vent needs cleaning. Many appliance companies do not offer dryer vent cleaning simply because it’s not an easy task. Dryer Vent Cleaner specializes in dryer vents and dryers, we clean the vent regardless of it’s location and always show proof of a successful clean.
Lint Build Up Reduces Your Dryer Efficiency & Increases Your Utility Bills
To give you a general idea, a half an inch of lint build up in a four feet dryer duct can slow down and reduce the efficiency of your dryer by up to half. This will cause your dryer to overwork itself more than the usual, making it run hotter and operate harder. Your dryer will then consume more electricity as it needs more energy to function properly.
Signs That You Need Your Dryer Vent Cleaning
To see if your dryer vent is due for a thorough cleaning, check out the following signs and if any of these is noticeable, set an appointment for professional dryer vent cleaning:
- It takes longer to dry your clothes each cycle
- Lint is present on your clothes after drying
- Your clothes are hotter and/or damper than usual after a standard cycle
- Your laundry room is more humid or warmer while your dryer is running
- The exterior of your dryer is unusually warm or hot during and after using it
- Heat is not present or being generated by the dryer even if there is an airflow present
- There is an excessive amount of lint at the back of your dryer and the surrounding area around the duct
- There is less lint on your lint trap
Lint build-up can and will cause your dryer to operate at higher temperatures than normal which will damage the internal parts, especially the heating elements including the heat sensor safety switches. This drastically shortens the lifespan of your dryer which would require you to pay extra for repairs if the warranty does not cover the damages or to buy a new one completely. All this unnecessary expenses can be easily avoided with regular maintenance checks on your dryer and annual cleaning of your dryer vents.

Often the person who installed the original duct work took the easy route and avoided obstacles in the ceiling or wall by using a flexible hose. Flexible metal or white vinyl hose should never be used inside walls or ceilings all dryer duct should be solid galvanized steel to reduce lint build-up and in the event of a dryer fire, it would contain the fire (hopefully). Duct tape should never be used for dryer vent installation or dryer vent re-routing because over time it dries out with the heat from drying.
