And you probably think you know how to do it too- you just remove the little drawer, pull the lint out, and throw it away. However, your dryer should still receive a more thorough cleaning, which is why you should give us a call to make sure that it’s done right.

What Is Involved in Our Dryer Vent Cleaning Process?
You might have never cleaned your dryer vent before, but to avoid potential fires, it’s recommended to get a cleaning about once a year.
We have cleaned hundreds of dryer vents in the area, and know how to remove lint build up and clogged up vents. We can even offer deep lint removal with our cleaning machines, which work using powerful suction, filters, and spinning brushes.
Before the Cleaning
Our professional technician will start by turning on the dryer to inspect the vent and exhaust system. In some cases, this might mean that they need to go on up to the roof. At other times, your exhaust might be vented out of the side of the house.
Our technician will then measure the airflow and remove your dryer from the wall to ensure there are no leaks and that everything has been installed correctly. This is when they’ll begin cleaning both the inner and outer elements of the dryer system, from the coils in the lid to the heating element.
If anything is damaged or might lead to possible fire damage, this is when our technician will inform you.
At this point, our technician will clean out all the lint from the vent and from the dryer itself. This means using a high-powered vacuum to clean out the lint and debris and to get into the dryer vent using a spinning brush and multiple sizes of brushes.
We have various sizes of brushes to fit into your vents, along with an electric blower to loosen up everything and brush it all into the vacuum.
From here, we will reinstall everything properly and check the system for any leaks. The goal here is to ensure that your system is put back together as it should be so that there are no issues in the next year or so before you call us again.
Why Clean Your Dryer Vent?
You might have never cleaned your dryer vent, so why start now? The fact is, there are many reasons to get the vent cleaned out, especially with around 15,000 fires and millions of dollars of property damage that occur each year.
Cleaning out the lint trap is a crucial step in keeping yourself safe from fires and will prevent any damage to your home.
That’s because not only does the lint trap debris, but the vent does too. Slowly, it will fill with lint that prevents air and moisture from leaving, and if everything remains damp, you might end up with more problems in the future.
You don’t just want to clean to avoid fires, though. You should get a technician to clean your vent because a thorough cleaning will ensure that your dryer actually works better. A more efficient dryer means less time operating it to get your clothing done and less electricity required.
It’s essential to clean your dryer every year to ensure you remain safe and that your dryer works optimally. Instead of struggling to get your clothing dry, call us to take a look at your dryer vent. We have been working with dryer vents for years and know how to get to all the nooks and crannies so that you can have peace of mind.
