Dryer Duct Cleaning – Minneapolis
What’s in your dryer vent and ducts?
Do you know where the lint and hot air from your clothes dryer goes? You might think about the lint trap, but it’s not a one-stop catch all for every piece of lint that comes off your clothes. To find the answer, you’ll have to become familiar with your dryer duct and vent pipe, which take out the hot air, some lint and some dust from your dryer and then vent it outside.
However, depending on the location of your dryer, it could take a while to vent out.
Can lint and dust get stuck?
Think about what happens to all the dust and lint that is getting pushed through the vent and duct. Some of it will make its way outside, but not all of it will be this lucky. Some will stick to the dryer vent’s walls, but lint likes company, and more of it will grab on to the first piece and begin to make a large clog.
The solution to dryer vent and duct problems…
…is maintenance and prevention. You should make sure your whole vent and duct lines get checked out at least once a year. If you have a large family and dry clothes more frequently, then you might want to clean the systems out twice a year.
