Most homes have a clothes dryer, but homeowners seldom think about the potential risks and hazards of this convenient appliance. Even the best dryer lint traps/screens only capture about 75% of the lint produced inside the dryer. Dryer lint is highly flammable and has the potential to ignite at any time. In recent years dryer fires have become more common than chimney fires. Each year these fires cost Californian’s millions in property damage, injuries, and even deaths!  Luckily, dryer fires are easily avoidable with regular cleaning done by qualified experts. 

Proper airflow is critical to efficient drying. Frequent cleaning of the dryer vent system improves the energy efficiency of the dryer and can improve the life expectancy of not only the clothes dryer but the clothes dried in it as well. 
The U.S. Fire Administration and National Fire Protection Association recommend cleaning dryer vents once a year or more often.  

NFPA, the National Fire Protection Association warns the failure to clean is the leading cause of laundry room fires. Allowing lint to build up in your dryer ducts is a costly accident waiting to happen. Regular inspection and cleaning of your dryer’s entire vent system is the best way to reduce your fire risks. The actual frequency of required cleaning varies depending on the layout of your ductwork and the frequency of dryer use. Don’t wait for disaster to strike, the professionals at The Duct Cleaning Pros can help ensure you and your family are protected and your dryer is running at peak efficiency.  


Benefits Of Dryer Vent Cleaning

According to the National Fire Prevention Agency, the leading cause of laundry room fires is “failure to clean.” That’s why regular cleaning and inspections should be performed at least annually. Regular cleanings prevent the buildup of highly flammable lint. Cleaning the dryer’s lint trap helps, but up to 20% of the lint gets past the trap and builds up in the ductwork and inside the dryer becoming a fire waiting to happen. Protect your home and family with regular cleanings. 

A clean dryer vent allows for better airflow, your clothes dry faster with less damage to the fabric and reduced wear and tear on your dryer. You save time and energy plus your clothes and dryer last longer too.  

Do your laundry room and even your clothes smell bad AFTER they are washed and dried? Lint buildup in your dryer vent system traps odors, allergens, microorganisms, gallons of water condensation and even potentially harmful VOCs inside the dryer and the walls of your home. Regular Dryer Vent Cleaning can remove lingering allergens and odors from your clothes and home.   

We use a powerful state-of-the-art vacuum specifically designed for air duct and dryer vent cleaning in conjunction with spinning brush technology to clean your dryer vent system from the outside in. We safely remove dust, dirt, lint, birds’ nests, squirrels’ nests and other blockages from your dryer vent system using the right tools for each type of blockage.

Don’t all Dryer Vent Cleaning companies use the same equipment?

We learned long ago that commercially available chimney and dryer brushes aren’t very effective at removing baked-on lint. So, we’ve created our own custom, non-abrasive, spinning brush technology that safely and efficiently dislodges even the toughest lint buildup, right down to the finest particles. After our service, your ductwork is clean and smooth, so it takes longer for the lint buildup to reoccur. 
Our spinning cable system is strong enough to handle the toughest jobs and all too often we need its muscle to remove the threaded extension or button lock rods that have become disconnected or broken off inside our customer’s dryer duct during a previous failed cleaning attempt. That’s why The Duct Cleaning Pros disconnect your transition duct and connect a powerful quad-power vacuum directly to the dryer duct inside your home. Our four large vacuum motors generate up to five times the suction and airflow volume of a typical commercial vacuum.
The vacuum uses High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance (HEPA) filters and bags trapping up to 99.97% of all dust, dirt, lint, and debris 0.3-micron size (or larger) that we’ve removed from your dryer ductwork for proper disposal.
