Dryer and Dryer Vent Cleaning
Most of us remember to clean out the removable lint filter after each dryer load, but that’s only the half of it. Up to 50% of the lint escapes the onboard filter and reaches the outside vent where it can affect operating efficiency and cause overheating. Only you can prevent a dryer fire with proper dryer and dryer vent cleaning.
2,900 home clothes dryer fires occur each year, leading to 5 deaths, 100 injuries, and $35 million in property loss, according to the U.S. Fire Administration. The leading cause of home clothes dryer fires is failure to clean them (34 percent).
We begin the dryer cleaning process by disconnecting the dryer from the dryer vent, cleaning the dryer from top to bottom including around the drum and heating element along with the filter tray. The dryer vent cleaning process is performed with a specialty tool to clean from the exterior hood to the back of the dryer. Once the dryer vent is cleaned the dryer is turned on to ensure proper air flow.
