If your dryer isn’t functioning correctly or takes longer than usual to dry clothes, it’s likely due to a clogged dryer vent line. Lint, debris, and anything else clogging your dryer vent not only impacts the function of your dryer, but is a serious fire hazard. While you should of course remove any lint (by hand) from the lint screen or trap after each cycle, it’s very recommended to conduct a thorough lint screen cleaning every year. Doing so increases airflow, the efficiency of your dryer, and extends the life of your dryer.
In fact, dryer manufacturers recommend cleaning your dryer vents at least once a year. Doing so improves the safety and efficiency of the whole drying unit. Unfortunately, a clogged dryer duct can lead to the whole dryer machine becoming burnt-out, causing it to lose its heating capabilities.
Some common symptoms of needing a dryer vent cleaning include the following:
- Not drying clothes efficiently
- Requiring multiple cycles
- Catching on fire
Dryer Vent Cleaning
There are many benefits to annually cleaning your dryer vent. The most important of these benefits, of course, is avoiding a fire hazard. When your dryer collects lint from your clothes, it expels them through the dryer duct. However, when the dryer duct is clogged, there’s nowhere for the lint to escape. This causes your dryer to heat up, and to continue heating up until a fire breaks out. Additionally, the longer the dryer vent is, the greater the hazard.
At Texas Best Window Cleaning, our specialties include dryer vent cleaning. Our services thoroughly clean your dryer vent line, effectively removing any fire hazards. Additionally, our services improve the overall function of your dryer machine. By returning proper airflow to your dryer vent line, your dryer will more efficiently dry your clothes. This reduces drying time, increases energy efficiency, and preserves the integrity and quality of your clothing.
To begin, we visually inspect your dryer vent system. A professional technician with experience thoroughly analyzes the function of your dryer system, and from there recommends the best approach. Our services aim to resolve any and all dryer vent issues in the most efficient manner.
Our experienced technician then measures airflow and back pressure to further assess the issue. This is where we find blockage problems and other sources of issues to resolve.
Debris & Clog Removal
We then proceed with removing debris and declogging. Anything from lint, animal nests, stray socks or undergarments may be found clogging your dryer vent. After removing any and all blockage, we move forward to the next step.
Believe it or not, objects and other debris blocking vent lines can be a source of harmful bacteria, fungi, and even viruses. Therefore, we fully sanitize any affected areas that need sanitization. Anywhere there’s a potential for hazardous contaminants, Texas Best Window Cleaning sanitizes and cleans.
Booster Fan Cleaning
If your dryer vent line is longer than 35 feet, you should have a booster fan. Installing a booster fan further decreases any fire hazards, and benefits your dryer vent system as a whole. The booster fan should also be cleaned annually along with your dryer vent system.
Lint Screen Cleaning
A clogged dryer vent forces your dryer to work harder, which means it ends up wasting energy and power, causing your electricity bill to spike. If your dryer is working harder than usual to dry the same amount of clothes, you should clean your dryer vent. After Texas Best Window Cleaning cleans your dryer vent, you’ll notice significant savings in energy and electricity bills.
