There are a few signs to look for that show you need your dryer vent cleaned; including; if your clothes take longer to dry, your dryer is getting very hot, you have a burning smell in your home, you have lint coming from the outside vent opening, or you haven’t had it cleaned recently. It’s important to have your dryer vent hoses or ducts cleaned and inspected at least once a year to help your dryer work faster, save energy, and prevent a fire from breaking out. If you have a big family or your dryer has a long duct or hose to the outside, hiring a company for a dryer duct cleaning more than once a year is ideal.
It is possible to clean your vent yourself; however, our team offers affordable cleanings, and we have the proper equipment to thoroughly clean your vents without damaging them. When it comes to at-home kits, they aren’t made for every dryer vent, and in the long run, you could end up doing more harm than good. They also don’t clean the dryer vent as thoroughly or efficiently as a dryer vent cleaner can.
