Jacksonville Commercial Dryer Vent Cleaning

A Jacksonville spa called A Lint Free Vent 904.537.1483 to get their dryer vent ductwork cleaned. The spa washes and dries laundry used in their nail salon and massage therapy facilities, on site.

lint clogging a dryer ventMoist lint from their drying laundry collects on the inner walls of the dryer exhaust ductwork.

With each load of laundry dried, more and more lint collects inside the dryer exhaust, restricting the flow of the exhaust.

When the dryer exhaust is restricted, the dryer has to work longer and harder to dry a load of laundry, costing the spa more money to dry their laundry. And the restricted exhaust builds up heat, which could lead to a fire!

Eddie Kyles, owner/operator of A Lint Free Vent provides professional Jacksonville commercial dryer vent cleaning and residential dryer vent cleaning, from the dryer to the dryer exhaust vent cap, with a rotating brush. A rotating brush is the preferred method for dryer vent cleaning because it removes lint the best!

  • If dryer vents have been damaged, or the client wants the vent duct re-routed (such as from exhausting into the garage to exhaust outside the home), Eddie can provide a free estimate, and can replace and re-route dryer exhaust vents, too!
  • As a service to regular clients, A Lint Free Vent retains their contact information, and notifies each client when their next dryer vent cleaning is due. Many of our clients have thanked us for providing this free and helpful safety consideration.

Dryer Vents Need Annual Cleaning

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends dryer vent cleaning each year, or whenever you notice that it takes longer than usual to get a load of laundry dried.

Lint collected in a flexible dryer vent ductBut because you can’t easily look inside your dryer vent ductwork to see how much lint has collected inside the vent, it’s easy to forget.

Some people notice signs that their dryer vent needs cleaning, like:

  • It takes longer to dry a load of laundry
  • Your dryer overheads and shuts off, and you have to wait for it to cool before you can finish drying a load of laundry
  • You see little clumps of lint sticking out of your dryer vent end cap, on your roof, beside your home, or in your garage

And the more you use your dryer (such as if you have a large family, or if you have a bank of dryers in your commercial laundromat), you should plan to get your dryer vent cleaned more than just once per year.

A homeowner in the Julington Creek neighborhood of Jacksonville, Florida called A Lint Free Vent recently to get their dryer vent cleaned. It had been 2 years since another company had cleaned their dryer vent.

The dryer exhaust flow in their dryer vent was restricted by the lint that had collected inside the ductwork since the last cleaning. These photos show some of the lint that we removed from their dryer vent ductwork. The rest of the lint that we removed went out the dryer vent end cap.

Our client was shocked to see how much lint had collected in their dryer vent! And they want A Lint Free Vent to clean their dryer vent on a regular basis.

As a service to our regular clients, we retain their contact information, and notify each client when their next dryer vent cleaning is due. Many of our clients have thanked us for providing this free and helpful safety consideration.

How Much Lint Collects in a Dryer Vent?

Ever wonder how much lint collects in a dryer vent?

lint clogging a dryer ventEvery time you dry a load of laundry, moist lint from your drying laundry collects in the exhaust path of clothes dryers. This lint collects inside in vent duct work each time the dryer is used.

This lint that collects in your dryer vent constricts your dryer vent duct, so less and less air can pass through it.

This means your dryer will take longer and longer to dry each load of laundry. Laundry will still be damp at the end of a timed drying cycle. And you will start to see clumps of dryer lint hanging out of your dryer vent cap.

These are signs your dryer vent needs to be professionally cleaned.

According to data from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the leading cause of thousands of fires in homes each year involving clothes dryers is failure to clean the dryer. And the NFPA recommends dryer vent cleaning each year, or whenever you notice that it takes longer than usual to get a load of laundry dried.

Our mobile dryer vent ductwork cleaning service usually takes less than an hour for most residential clients. For commercial clients, the time for dryer vent cleaning is determined by the number of dryer vents to be cleaned.

We provide a thorough cleaning from dryer to vent cap. (Whether the vent cap is on the roof top, on the side of your home, or in your garage.) And, we use a rotary brush. Cleaning lint out of dryer ductwork with a rotary brush is the recommended method in our industry for best results.

The first of the following photos shows of our rotary brush tool beginning to remove lint from the inside of a dryer vent duct.

The second photo shows of some of the collected lint removed from the dryer vent duct by our rotary brush.

And the final photo shows how much lint we removed from this dryer vent with our rotary brush tool. Even more lint blew out of the roof vent cap after our cleaning!

If we find any problems during our dryer vent inspection, we inform our client. We carry a selection of typical repair parts (such as flexible ducting and clamps) on our truck, so we can fix many common problems while we are at the client’s home or business.

A Lint Free Vent can also re-route or repair solid metal dryer vent ductwork. After we inspect your ductwork, we can give you a free estimate for the re-routing, repairs or replacement work that we recommend.

Professional Dryer Vent Cleaning in Jacksonville Florida

Eddie Kyles - owner of A Lint Free VentCall A Lint Free Vent 904.537.1483 to get your clothes dryer vent thoroughly cleaned. We provide our professional dryer vent cleaning services in homes, condos, apartments and businesses in the Jacksonville, Florida area.

Have you seen the little signs along the side of the road and at stoplights, “Dryer vent cleaning – $45”?

Remember the old saying, “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.”? That saying is still often true today.

Husqvarna battery powered Leaf BlowerThere are people who will charge you $45 to clean your dryer vent. Some of those people will just remove the flexible exhaust hose from the back of your clothes dryer, and then use their portable vacuum exhaust, or a leaf blower to blow air through the dryer exhaust vent ducting!

Will this process clean the lint out of the ductwork from your clothes dryer? Maybe some lint will get blown out, but most of the lint will remain stuck to the inside walls of the exhaust vent ducting.

Lint collected in a flexible dryer vent ductThere is still a significant danger of a house fire, caused by the lint that remains stuck to the walls of your dryer vent.

And it still will take longer for your laundry to dry, because the flow of air through the vent is still restricted.

Annual dryer vent cleanings are important to keep our clients and their homes, condos, apartments and businesses safe.

  • As a courtesy to our clients, we maintain records of the date we clean each dryer vent.
  • As a service to our clients and for no additional fee, we call our clients when it has been nearly a year since their dryer vent was cleaned.

Commercial Dryer Vent Cleaning – Jacksonville Florida

Laundrymat dryers with cleaned vent ductsA Lint Free Vent provides residential dryer vent cleaning and commercial dryer vent cleaning to people in the Jacksonville, Florida area.

  • Just like your home or condo dryer vent needs the lint cleaned out each year, commercial dryer vents need regular cleaning out, too!

We recently cleaned out the lint that had collected in the vents from commercial dryers in a laundrymat, here in Jacksonville.

Many customers at the laundrymat means lots of loads of laundry washed and dried, which results in layers of lint collecting in the dryer vents.

We thoroughly cleaned the lint from each vent duct, from the dryer to the vent cap, with our rotating brush. A rotating brush is the best way to clean lint from dryer vents.

Commercial dryer vent cleaning will save the laundrymat owner money – the dryers won’t have to run as long to dry a load of laundry. The cleaned dryer vents will also save clients money and time too. A clean dryer vent means it won’t take clients more time to dry their laundry and that means drying their laundry won’t cost them more money!

And if your dryer vent duct work needs repair, A Lint Free Vent can do that, too! A Lint Free Vent is experienced in dryer vent duct repair, replacement, and re-routing.

Laundry Dryer Money Saving Tips

Who doesn’t like saving money when they can?

Clay Electric Co-op logoA recent newsletter from our local Clay County Electric Co-Op of Florida shared these money saving tips on dryer utility bills:

  • Cleaning a clogged dryer vent will help each load of laundry dry more quickly. That saves time doing laundry, and makes a clothes dryer run more efficiently.
  • Drying one load of laundry immediately after another will reduce heat loss and reduce dryer warm up time, and that will reduce the time it takes to dry each load of laundry.

It only follows that when your dryer does not have to run as long, you save money on your utility bill for the power used by the dryer. And it follows that the dryer will last longer, too. Win/Win!
