Dryer Duct cleaning is one of those things that doesn't cross the mind very often but is surprisingly important. Dryer lint is highly flamable. Therefore, not only is it important for you to clean your dyer lint trap often or even after every load of laundry but it is also important to have professionals flush out your dryer ducts annually. We would be happy to come out and make sure your home is safe.
The laundry room is one of the most used areas in your home. During every load of laundry dried, lint and other particles are constantly being produced and deposited into your dryer duct system. This constant deposit of lint can turn into a serious problem if not tended to. Lint in ducts restricts air flow, which increases drying time and causes the motor to overheat. If the duct is coated or blocked with lint, a house fire can result. A rather simple and affordable process can save you a potentially huge headache in the future.
A common warning sign that your dryer ducts might need cleaning and that your home is at risk are that clothes, especially towels or jeans, are taking longer then usual time to dry. A few other signs are; clothes are hotter than usual at the end of the cycle, the flapper on vent hood doesn't open when the dryer is on, the dryer is hot to the touch on the outside of the unit, or that the dryer is shutting off before the cycle is completed (a safety control indicating that the dryer has exceeded a safe temperature).
