Spring Dryer Vent Cleaning – 2019

Spring flowers - ImpatiensSprouting plants and blossoming flowers; springtime is invigorating! Many people like to clean their residences and businesses, inside and out each spring.

And it’s a good time to remember to get your dryer vent cleaned, too! Regular dryer vent cleaning helps prevent the moist lint that comes lose while drying laundry, from clogging up your dryer vent. A restricted dryer vent means longer time to dry a load of laundry, and your dryer works harder, too!

If you live in the Jacksonville, Florida area, just call Eddie Kyles at A Lint Free Vent 904.537.1483 to make an appointment to get your residential or commercial dryer vent thoroughly cleaned. Eddie uses a rotating brush to remove the lint; the preferred method recommended.

In one home this spring, Eddie found the dryer vent pipe clogged with dirt! The vent duct went outside to a “shepherd’s hook” which will usually keep dirt and other foreign material out of the ductwork, but not this time! That dryer is working much more efficiently now!

And in another home, Eddie checked the dryer inside filter (prior to starting to clean the dryer vent duct) and found the filter was packed solid with lint! The client said they did not know that there was a filter in the dryer, that needed to be cleaned after each use. They had never cleaned the dryer inside filter since they purchased the dryer! Cleaning the lint from that inside filter made a big difference in how quickly the dryer finished a load of laundry!

One client said the dryer vent in their home had not been cleaned out “for a while”. As Eddie started to clean out that dryer vent, more and more lint came out. So much lint came out of that dryer vent, there must have only been a very little flow of dryer exhaust air going through it. A clogged dryer vent can be a fire hazard. The client stated it usually had taken several dryer cycles to get a load of laundry to dry. That was one very, very clogged dryer vent! And that dryer will be performing much better now that the vent is cleaned out.

If your dryer is taking longer and longer to dry a load of laundry, or if you need to run the dryer through several drying cycles to get your laundry dry, just call Eddie Kyles at A Lint Free Vent 904.537.1483 to make an appointment to get your spring dryer vent cleaning.

And if Eddie finds your dryer vent needs a repair, or would perform better if it were re-routed, don’t worry, Eddie can do those jobs for you, too!

Commercial Laundry Dryer Vent Cleaning – Jacksonville FL

Many of us have heard the old axiom, “What you don’t know can’t hurt you.” Well that is just not true for dryer lint collecting in the dryer vent duct.

Eddie Kyles - owner of A Lint Free VentThe owner of a commercial laundry in Jacksonville, Florida recently called Eddie Kyles, owner of A Lint Free Vent, to get their dryer vent ducts cleaned.

The commercial laundry was very nice and clean inside.

When we got up on the roof of the building, we could see dryer lint all over the rooftop.

A lot of fabric will be washed and dried in a commercial laundry each year. Each time a piece of fabric is dried in a commercial dryer, little pieces; short, fine fibers separate from the surface of cloth and become lint. That moist lint is blown out of the dryer into the dryer vent ductwork. Some of the lint is blown clear through the vent and out the roof cap or vent cap on the side of the building. But some of that lint is heavy with moisture and falls onto the inner walls of the vent duct and begins to collect.

Over time, that lint can build up inside the vent duct, restricting the flow of exhaust air and building up heat. That restricted dryer vent makes the dryer work harder and longer to dry a load of laundry, and that leads to repair or replacement of the dryer. Once it is dried out, that dryer lint is flammable, and the increased heat in the restricted dryer vent has led to fires in commercial laundries and in homes, too!

For more active homes or businesses that dry a lot more laundry, or fabric that produces a lot more lint, more frequent dryer vent cleaning may be recommended.

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 both flexible and metal dryer exhaust vents, too!

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.

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!
