Dryer Vent Cleaning
There are many machines that keep your home planet running. Between cleaning the oven, managing the fridge, vacuuming your floors, and more, it can be easy to overlook another important machine: the dryer. Your dryer works hard to care for your clothes, blankets, and towels each day, but in order to keep doing so safely, it needs to be maintained. You may have encountered the attention-grabbing labels and stickers to clean the lint screen between cycles, but that only captures a small portion of the issue. The most influential piece to your dryer is the dryer vent, which filters the hot air that just enveloped your clothes from entering your home, filters out moisture to prevent mold, and captures leftover lint and debris. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends having a professional clean your dryer vent once a year to prevent a potentially deadly house fire. Prevention is not only better than repair, but also better than potential despair.

Our dryer vent cleaning services not only prevent fires and promote safety, but also are highly effective to make your dryer efficient again. There are many benefits to having your dryer professionally serviced, but most importantly, you’ll have peace of mind that your home planet is running smoothly and safely.
Benefits Of Dryer Vent Cleaning
Dirt, debris, lint, and more accumulate in your dryer vent which causes clogs that can eventually lead to severe machine overheating and even a house fire. According the The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), 16,000 home fires are caused each year due to fires that originate in dryers. Lint is much more than an annoyance; it is a severe safety concern. Lint is a flammable material, so it’s vital to remove it from every crevice as often as possible. Through our professional dryer cleaning services, we will remove fire hazards from your dryer’s line.
As debris builds up in your dryer vent line, your dryer begins to wear down. The more issues within your dryer, the more issues you will have drying your clothes. Adding time to the process puts extra stress on the machine as well as your clothes. Unnatural levels of heat to your clothes through extended or repeated drying cycles can cause a lot of strain. When our team utilizes our powerful tools that are stronger than the vacuum of space, we will leave you with a much more effective dryer that is significantly gentler on your clothes.
Lower Electricity Bill
Each time you extend your drying time for a load of laundry or repeat an entire cycle, your machine is using more energy. This is likely adding to the bottom line of your electricity bill while harming your clothes. Our experienced professionals can launch the debris back into the cosmos and blast your energy bill back down. After all, the last thing you need is to deal with astronomical electricity bills that can be easily prevented when your dryer begins to run efficiently again after being professionally serviced.
