A homeowner in Orange Park, Florida called A Lint Free Vent 904.537.1483, making an appointment to clean their dryer vent.
This person had read one of our articles about some of the signs that a dryer vent needs cleaning . They also knew it had been “a while” since their dryer vent was last cleaned.
Instead of a vent cap on the roof or side of the home, this dryer vent duct went from the laundry room, under the concrete slab, and came up outside the home, topped with a “shepherd’s hook”. (A shepherd’s hook is just two, 90 degree elbow sections of PVC pipe, joined to make a “U” shape, and installed on the end of the dryer vent duct.) The hook is easily removed for cleaning lint out of the dryer vent ductwork.
A Lint Free Vent uses a rotating brush tool to remove the lint clinging 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.
We clean residential and commercial dryer vents. And we clean out each dryer vent thoroughly from the dryer end to the duct termination cap.
As you can see in these photos, even thought the shepherd’s hook is a large diameter PVC pipe, a bunch of lint can still be trapped inside the walls of the dryer vent duct.
Having a clean dryer vent in your home or business 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.
Get your dryer vent cleaned on a regular basis. For most folks, that means at least one cleaning per year.
