According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, more than 15,000 fires are sparked every year by clothes dryers. Lint and other debris can build up in your dryer vent, reducing air flow to the dryer, backing up dryer exhaust gases, creating a fire hazard. A full load of wet clothes contains about a half a gallon of water. Lint is created from the clothes as water is removed during the drying process. This lint will build up in crevices deep down in the lint filter and inside the dryer vent. At the end of the day your dryer is a leading source of a fire in your home.
This is how we can keep your home safe. First, we run the dryer to determine how much air flow your dryer is putting out. Once we determine the air flow we begin the cleaning process utilizing compressed air and special tools designed for dryer vent cleaning. Second, we clean out the dryer vent chamber inside the dryer. We then pull your dryer from the wall and clean up any debris that may have fallen and accumlated behind your dryer. We then inspect, clean or replace the flexible hose that connects your dryer to the wall. The final step is sweeping out the dryer vent line from the dryer to the outside vent.
