Air Duct cleaning can be done for a couple primary reasons:
Our process includes the following:
You may need dryer vent cleaning if you begin to notice the following:
A leading cause of home fires is due to clogged or nearly plugged dryer vents! We ROUTINELY clean dryer vents that are ¾ of the way clogged, these are fires waiting to happen.
Attempting to clean a dryer vent without the correct tools can damage your venting and dryer as well as cause additional clogging due to incomplete removal and “packing” down of lint.
Several different things can contribute to a dryer vent fire. Lint filters only collect a certain amount of lint during the drying process, the rest is meant to pass out the dryer vent to the exterior of the home. If the line is clogged the lint can become trapped near the heating element and catch on fire. Another cause could be the dryer overworking and therefore overheating while attempting to push air out a clogged vent. Lint is extremely combustible and once lit can move very rapidly into a major house fire. Condensation within a dryer vent can create packed lint that also catches on fire as the aluminum exhaust tubing heats up! Dryer vents that are to long or have to many turns can also restrict the airflow. This restriction can also lead to dryer overheating and fire.
