Dryer Vent Cleaning by Universal Duct Cleaning

Your home and your family can be in danger if the dryer vent becomes clogged and is then ignited by the dryer overheating. Therefore, we recommend you have dryer vent cleaning done every 3 to 6 months, which is good timing since that is about the same timetable as most people schedule our air-filter replacement services. Of course, a more precise timing will depend on how much laundry you do and how much of that is fabrics that produce significant lint.

While avoiding a fire is the number one reason for dryer vent cleaning, it is also a good idea for avoiding damage to the dryer and wearing it out sooner than usual. When the vent is getting filled up, the dryer must work harder to dry the clothes, causing not only added stress on the dryer, but also inflating your power bill. If you notice it is taking longer than usual to dry your clothes or your clothes come out hotter, those are signs that you need to call us for dryer vent cleaning right away.

When should you clean your dryer vent?

Once a year is recommended for dryer vent cleaning. Clean more often if you do large amounts of laundry, you have a long and/or angled dryer duct, or you spot any of the following “clogged vent warning signs”:

* Laundry loads take longer than usual to dry.

• Clothes are hot when you take them out.

– Your lint trap collects more gunk than normal.

• The dryer’s exterior is hot (not just warm) to the touch.

* The air in your laundry room feels exceptionally warm and/or humid.

• You detect a smell of scorching or burning near the dryer.

– The outside dryer vent cap or louver is not opening normally.

You may find it more cost-effective to invest in a professional dryer vent cleaning service. This is especially true if:

You have respiratory problems

• You’re short of time and energy

– You’d prefer not to pay for, or store, all the necessary equipment

• Your dryer vent pipe is long (10 feet or more) or has several bends, curves or angles

– You have a rooftop dryer vent, rather than one on an exterior wall
