Some dryer vents will need to be cleaned often. These vents collect lint and can sometimes cause house fires if they are not properly cleaned out. Some vents need to be cleaned every 6 months to a year and some will need it every few years. If you have a flexible vent that goes directly from the back of the dryer to the outside of the home you can just replace these every year or so to ensure there is no build up.
But for those that have a hard pipe that runs through other rooms to exit the home you will most likely need to have these systems cleaned on a regular basis. Normally the longer the run and the more bends you have will mean the vent will collect more lint. Some that run straight and have soft bends may not collect too much lint over time. We provide a dryer vent cleaning service and can help with cleaning your dryer vent.
How Is My Dryer Vent Cleaned
If you have a dryer vent that needs to be cleaned there is a few ways to clean them. We use a combination of two different methods to ensure a proper cleaning. Our process consists of using a rotating brush and a lot of compressed air. After running a brush through the pipe to looses all the lint we use a lot of compressed air to blow it all out of the dryer vent. We can normally get a good ides of how dirty the vent is so we can give you an idea of how often you will need to clean it in the future.
