As any firefighter will likely tell you, you should clean out your lint trap every chance you get because they’ve seen the consequences of not doing so first-hand. However, what you may not know is that it isn’t always just lint buildup that leads to dryer vent clogs. Dryer duct cleaning can not only help prevent dryer fires, it can even help you save on your energy bill, prevent expensive repairs and extend the life of your dryer. But not springing for professional dryer duct cleaning can cost you more in the long run, and put you at risk for a house fire. At Dryer Vent Wizard, we are the trusted name in dryer duct cleaning for Burnsville and the surrounding areas and are here to tell you why you should schedule dryer duct cleaning this fall.
If you haven’t had your dryer vent cleaned in recent years, it’s probably time to call in the professionals. DIY cleaning simply won’t get the job done. Dryer vents have so many twists and turns that there’s no way you could get everything out yourself. Some dryer vents and hoses travel upwards of 30 or even 40 feet, winding their way through the basement or attic with plenty of bends and turns before leading to the outside opening of your home. Dryer hose cleaning kits typically consist of flexible rods of varying lengths, ending in a brush that’s used to clean out lint. But, the problem is, often these kits won’t reach through the entire hose and can even become stuck or lodged in the hose. This can create an even bigger hazard. And, while you may think you’ve cleaned out the entire hose, there may be portions of the hose or vent you have missed. You may even wind up packing lint and debris in there tighter.
Over the years, Dryer Vent Wizard has cleaned thousands of dryer vents and we’ve seen many different things cause clogs and potentially fire-inducing problems; everything from birds nests to debris. With so many potential issues, it’s even more essential to hire the experts. When it comes to dryer hose cleaning done right, you are better off leaving the job to dryer vent cleaning specialists which have the tools to get the job done right. At Dryer Vent Wizard we can get the job done right the first time, using brushes or a large air compressor that runs the entire line to the clog, pushing it out of the exterior vent.
