Dryer Vent Cleaning in Troy, MI

How often should I be getting my dryer vents cleaned?

There are a number of factors that determine how often you should have your dryer vent duct clean. For example, dryers that have better blowing power, such as full size dryers, cause less lint to build up. Vents with a lot of elbows, twists, and turns cause more lint to built up. Depending on these and other factors, we recommend air duct cleaning every 1 to 2 years.

Are dirty vents a hazard?

A plugged vent will certainly cause a dryer to run hotter and increase the chance that something could catch fire. A dirty vent, however, is only one link in a chain of events that must occur for a fire to start. Other events may include: failure of thermostat and limit switches in the dryer, lint inside the dryer, a missing or damaged lint screen, and a crushed hose behind the dryer. Some of our competitors employ “scare tactics” and reprint newspaper articles about fires caused by dryers. Though fire hazards may be exaggerated, many fire departments and insurance companies do require that dryer vents be inspected and cleaned regularly.

How do we clean dryer vents?

There are two types of cleaning service; routine cleaning and problem cleaning.

Routine cleaning

Applied to all customers that maintain a regular cleaning schedule to clean the dryer vent. All dryer vents are cleaned from the outside using a high pressure, compressed air tool called a jet-snake. The air duct cleaning snake (jet-snake) shoots down the vent like a rocket, blasting loose lint, debris, and nests, sending it to the outside. It will normally turn 2 or 3 corners, cleaning to the flexible hose behind the dryer. No lint enters the dryer or residence.

Problem cleaning

Performed when an individual dryer is not drying clothes fast enough. We disconnect and pull the dryer out, whatever it takes to get the vent clean! This happens when the dryer vent has never been cleaned.
