Signs Your Dryer Vent Needs Cleaning

Fighting a house fireDo you use an electrical or gas powered dryer to dry your clothes, bedding, and other laundry? The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends that you get your dryer vent cleaned annually.

Based on years of collected fire safety data, NFPA warns that the lint collecting in your dryer ductwork is flammable, and has caused thousands of house fires each year. Some of these fires end in fatalities.

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!

Save Money – Get Your Dryer Vent Professionally Cleaned

A little information about our Dryer Vent Cleaning Service

1. A professionally cleaned, free flowing dryer vent allows your laundry to dry more quickly. This saves time in your day and saves you money on your utility bill. It takes less energy to dry your laundry when your dryer vent duct is clean.

2. A cleaned dryer vent will save you money on repairs and on more frequent replacement cost for your dryer. The lint that collects in your dryer vent makes your dryer work harder to remove the moisture from your laundry. A dryer that is working harder to dry each load of laundry will result in more maintenance and repair costs. And a dryer that has to work harder during each drying cycle will need to be replaced sooner than it should.
