Dryer vent cleaning should be added to your list of home maintenance items if it's not on there already. Many homeowners may not realize there are actually risks involved with skipping this task. Atlantic Duct Cleaning has provided professional dryer vent cleaning services to residential and commercial properties for almost 30 years, and we want to help clients see the importance of staying on top of this maintenance item. Let's go over some dryer vent cleaning facts you may not know, which demonstrate the value of this service.
What Exactly Is Dryer Vent Cleaning and How Is It Done?
Basically, our team will come in and remove all traces of lint and dust buildup from your dryer and its vents. We will disconnect the flex from the dryer and clean the entire length of the exhaust run from the interior to the exterior. We use a HyperVac and compressed air with an air whip to loosen up all the dust and debris. Our cleaning process is safe and certified by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association.
Why Should My Dryer Vents Be Cleaned?
A professional dryer vent cleaning will reduce the risk of fire from the buildup of lint in the vents, as well as increase the energy efficiency of your dryer. This can actually save you money and extend the lifespan of your dryer. The increased energy efficiency will result in lower electric bills, and your dryer won't have to work as hard once the lint buildup is removed. Dryer vent cleanings are a win all around, making your home a little safer and saving you money in the process.
How Do I Know If My Dryer Vents Need to Be Cleaned?
We recommend having your dryer vents cleaned every one to two years, but make sure you call us right away if you notice the following warning signs:
- Clothes (especially heavier materials like towels or jeans) are still damp after a drying cycle.
- Your dryer and/or clothes are abnormally hot to the touch.
- The dryer is shutting off before the cycle is finished.
