Our Procedure

Lint accumulation after Dryer Vent Cleaning

  • Spin a brush attached to flexible rods through venting system
  • Connector hose cleaned
  • Lint trap screen cleaned
  • Air pressure is blown through venting system to remove any residual lint
  • Dryer exhaust pressure tested with gauge after system brushed out

Many companies who clean dryer vents will simply use vacuums or air pressure.  This will only remove the loose accumulation in the dryer vent.  Vacuums or air pressure will never remove the caked-on lint that plugs up the dryer vent system.

Our dryer vent cleaning equipment is specifically designed for dryer vents.  The rods are flexible enough to make the multiple 90 degree bends that most dryer vent systems have. The brushes are able to SCRUB the dryer vent system clean from beginning to end.  Brushes are the only way to remove the caked-on lint that plugs up the dryer vent system.

What We Need In Order To Service Your Dryer Vent…

Important Tips About Your Dryer

  • Clean the lint trap screen after every load.
  • Never leave the house or go to bed with the dryer running.
  • Do not use a knit stocking over the end of a gas dryer’s connector hose due to the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. Building code requires that ALL  dryer vent systems be vented to the outside of the house.
  • Have an appliance technician clean out the body of the dryer every year.
