Dryer Vent Cleaning

Your dryer exhaust and dryer vent system is designed to remove heat, moisture and lint from your laundry as it is being dried.   Cleaning the Dryer Vent, improves the safety and efficiency of your dryer. As the dryer vent fills with lint and other debris drying time increases, and can cause the dryer itself to clog and overheat.  When lint builds up in the dryer vent it prevents air and moisture from escaping the dryer and clothes remain damp.  Animal nesting is also another frequent cause of dryer vent blockage.  If the dryer is not exhausting properly to the outdoors, carbon monoxide can back up into the home.   Preventing accumulation of lint throughout the dryer exhaust system will make your dryer work safely and most efficient.

Running the dryer more than a 40 minute cycle results is a waste of time, energy, and causes unnecessarily high energy bills. One load of wet clothes placed in a dryer contains about 1/3 gallon of water. Clothes dryers are one of the most expensive appliances in your home to operate.
