Dryer Vent Cleaning

Cleaning your dryer vent is a critical fire prevention task that is recommended at least once a year.  With regular use, lint bypasses your dryer’s lint trap and travels into the vent where it can build up and block airflow. This can cause your dryer to overheat and increases your risk of experiencing a fire. 

At Duraclean, our team of professionally trained technicians specialize in dryer vent cleaning. We use industry-approved equipment and processes to ensure the most thorough cleaning possible. With our services, you can trust that your home will be cleaner, healthier, and safer. Don’t take any chances with your family’s well-being. Trust Duraclean to keep your dryer vents clean and your equipment running at its best.

Benefits of Clean Dryer Vents

Fire Prevention

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that clothes dryers are associated with approximately 15,600 fires yearly.

Energy Savings

A clogged dryer vent could mean your items will need multiple cycles before drying correctly. This means higher energy bills due to extra run time.

Cost Savings

Longer life of the dryer and lower maintenance bills when running at peak efficiency.

Signs Your Dryer Vents Need To Be Cleaned

If you’re experiencing any of the following issues, it’s a sign that you need your dryer vents cleaned:

  • Drying time takes longer than 40 minutes.
  • Clothes feel unusually hot after being dried.
  • You detect a burning odor while the dryer is operating.
  • The vent hood flap remains closed during the dryer’s operation.
  • There’s condensation around the dryer vent or the surrounding area.

After getting your vents cleaned, you can maximize the benefits by following these simple tips:

  • Clean the lint trap after each use.
  • Make sure your dryer vent meets the necessary standards.
  • Check that the vent line isn’t bent or crushed anywhere.
  • Keep the vent’s exit clear of debris or obstructions, like nests or snow.

Lint Alert PRO PLUS

To enhance your home’s safety, we recommend using the Lint Alert PRO PLUS. It monitors your dryer exhaust system for problems, illuminating LED indicators to show how efficiently your dryer is operating as lint builds up over time. When airflow restriction becomes dangerous, an alarm is triggered, helping prevent dryer fires and maintaining your dryer’s maximum energy efficiency. The package includes tap fitting and 6 feet of tubing.
