Dryer Vent Cleaning

Stay safe with a clean and well-functioning dryer vent

Both commercial businesses and private homes use dryers on a regular basis. But like any white goods, your dryer should have its vents checked and cleaned at least once a year to ensure it is functioning at its best – and that a clogged dryer vent isn’t threatening your health and safety.

Why should I get my dryer vent cleaned professionally?

Many people regularly clean their dryers’ lint baskets as they are aware that a full lint basket is a potential fire hazard. However, not everyone knows that the lint baskets cannot trap every single loose fiber or piece of dust. And after regular use, fluff, lint, and other debris can get stuck and build up to dangerous levels in your dryer’s vent.

A clogged dryer vent causes a wide variety of problems, some of which you may have noticed but not attributed them to a blocked dryer vent –

  • The dryer no longer heats effectively, or doesn’t heat at all
  • Your clothes are unusually wet – or abnormally hot – at the end of a normal cycle
  • You notice unusual smells or vapors when the dryer is running
  • The dryer feels very hot to touch on the outside

These signs indicate that a dryer vent is blocked, which can be potentially hazardous to everyone’s health.

Not only can a clogged dryer vent catch fire easily, but the blockage means that poisonous gas fumes may also leak out of your dryer when in use. In addition, a poorly functioning dryer vent means that it takes far longer for your clothes to get dry, costing you much more in both time and power bills.

However, getting your dryer vent cleaned is a routine procedure that is accomplished quickly and smoothly and our team of technicians at United Air Duct Cleaning would be thrilled to help you out.
