Get Dryer Vents Cleaned When Needed

Most dryer vents need to be professionally cleaned at least once each year.

But if you live in a home or work at a business that does a lot of laundry, you may need to get your dryer vent cleaned more often.  It’s important to get dryer vents cleaned when needed.

Using a rotating brush tool removes the lint which can cling to the interior of the dryer vent ductwork. Using a rotary brush is the preferred cleaning method to get best results in the dryer vent cleaning industry.

A Lint Free Vent cleans dryer vents for residential and commercial customers. Some dryer vent ducts are flexible ductwork, some dryer vents are solid metal ductwork. 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!

A clean dryer vent helps a dryer get laundry thoroughly dry in less time. That means no more repeating drying cycles several times to get laundry dry. Getting laundry dry in less time saves energy and gives more time for other activities.

The NFPA recommends having your dryer serviced by a professional.

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. You should also have your dryer vent cleaned if you find a load of laundry comes out damp after a timed drying cycle.
