Dryer Duct Cleaning – Minnetonka
What’s in your dryer vent and ducts?
Any idea where the hot air and lint from your clothes dryer goes? Think all the hot air and lint from your clothes dryer goes to your lint trap? Guess again. Your lint trap isn’t a complete catch all for every piece of lint that comes off your clothes. The real answer lies in your dryer duct and vent pipe, which is the exit for hot air, some lint and some dust.
It could take a while, however, for it all to vent out, depending on where your dryer is located.
The dangers of lint and dust
Some lint and dust make its way outside, but not all of it does. Some will stick to the vent’s walls, but lint loves company, so more will grab on and begin making a large clog.
Moisture can also be a problem, as it seeps into your dryer vent and mixes with the lint. This can produce a lethal combination, as the mixture is something akin to dried mud.

Get your whole vent and duct lines get checked out and cleaned at least once a year. If you have a large family and dry clothes more frequently, then you might want to have the systems cleaned out biannually.
