Benefits of a Dryer Vent Cleaning

Atlantic Duct Cleaning’s professional residential dryer vent cleaning will help:

  • Improve air quality.  A clean and properly installed dryer vent is critical to ensuring that water is fully eliminated from the clothes and expelled outdoors during the drying cycle. If your dryer vent has a lot of build-up, moisture can condense into pools of water in the dryer vent, resulting in conditions where mold and mildew grow. A professional dryer vent cleaning makes the air in your home is healthy to breathe.
  • Prevent fires. Dryer fires can occur when lint builds up in the dryer or in the exhaust duct. Lint blocks the flow of air, causing excessive heat build-up, and can result in a fire. As a preventative measure, clean the dryer vent and exhaust duct on a regular basis.
  • Increase efficiency. By eliminating the build-up in the vent, your dryer won’t have to work as hard. Increasing your dryer’s efficiency will use less energy while operating (saving you money!).
  • Extend dryer life. Similarly, a dryer vent line that is clogged with lint will cause your dryer to work harder, resulting in a shorter life span. A properly maintained dryer vent helps to achieve maximum performance and can extend the life of your dryer.

Warning Signs of Dryer Build-Up

If you notice any of these issues, a bigger problem might need to be addressed. Keep an eye out for the following:

  • Clothes (especially heavier materials such as towels or jeans) are still damp after a drying cycle
  • Dryer and/or clothes are abnormally hot to the touch
  • Dryer is shutting off before the cycles is finished
  • And more

Call Atlantic Duct Cleaning immediately if you are experiencing any of these warning signs to prevent the consequences of an uncleaned dryer vent.
