What is duct/vent cleaning?
Dryer vent and air ducts naturally become clogged with use. While it is hidden system, ductwork runs throughout our homes to provide temperature control and dry our clothing. Vents allow the used air to exit the home and keep the air supply inside clean and breathable. Lint and other debris builds up in a dryer hose and vents. Over 15,500 fires are caused annually by household appliances not being properly maintained.
Professional dryer vent cleaners use special brushes and cleaning products to eliminate lint, dirt, and other debris that accumulates in ductwork. Additionally, professional staff is trained to take the (important) safety precautions associated with duct cleaning. A thorough cleaning involves checking the interior of the vent pipe as well as the home’s exterior (at the ductwork’s exit point) to ensure that there are no blockages to the exhaust.
When should ducts be cleaned?
It is recommended to clean dryer vents annually. There are certain tell-tale signs that it is necessary to clean your dryer vent.
- If your clothes are taking a long time to dry—Drying machines should take about 45 minutes to dry a small load and 60 minutes to dry a large one.
- The vent is visibly dirty—The surefire way to know if your dryer vent is clogged to when you can see the vent itself clogged at the point where it is exiting the home.
- The laundry room is hot—Laundry rooms can be come hot when a dirty or clogged air vent does not allow hot air to escape.
- Your clothes have a burnt smell—Clothing that is dried in a dryer with improper ventilation can leave clothing with the smell of burning. This results from a buildup of hot air that is unable to exit the appliance.
Why should ducts be cleaned?
Clogged air ducts pose a serious safety hazard for several reasons. All are easily preventable with a professional duct cleaning. The first (and most severe) is a house or building fire. When the lint from clothing guilds up inside of a dryer vent, the material itself becomes flammable and can start a fire silently and suddenly.
Another risk is carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide gas builds up in a home when clogged vents prevent the air from escaping. The carbon monoxide first builds up in the vent and then diffuses into the rest of the room. Carbon monoxide can result in fatal poisoning of the home’s inhabitants.
When vents and ductwork are not cleaned properly, air cannot escape and pressure builds up inside the appliance which in turn has to work harder. Furthermore, inefficient dryers are simply used more often (with excess time required to dry clothing), resulting in a decreased life span for the appliance.
When the ductwork of a dryer or furnace is not properly ventilated, more energy is required to circulate the air. Getting ductwork cleaned regularly by a highly-reviewed professional results in significantly decreased utility bills in addition to the increased life span of the appliance. Our customers know that a good cleaning quickly pays for itself.
