How often do vents need cleaning?
Dryers are really designed to be positioned right on an exterior wall and vent directly out. In modern construction we see dryers placed, for convenience, smack in the middle of the house. Then you have a 30 foot vent to the exterior wall or a 15 foot vent to the roof. With a long dryer vent like that and multiple people in the family it MUST be done every year. Full size, brand new dryers blow better than smaller stack dryers or older dryers and therefore collect less lint in the vent system. Vents with a lot of turns and elbows blow worse and build up more lint. Most vents should be cleaned once a year as preventative maintenance. If you live alone and have a small vent then you can probably get away with every other year.
Are dirty vents a fire hazard?
A clogged dryer vent will certainly cause a dryer to run hotter and increase the chance that something could catch fire. A dirty vent, however, is only one link in a chain of events that must occur for a fire to start. Other events may include: failure of thermostat and limit switches in the dryer, lint inside the dryer, a missing or damaged lint screen, and a crushed hose behind the dryer. Allowing a dryer to run with a clogged vent will not only cost you more to run it but reduce its life span considerably. Many fire departments and insurance companies do require that dryer vents be inspected and cleaned regularly.
How do we clean dryer vents?
All dryer vents are cleaned from the outside with a brush system. We first clean out any lint in the dryer itself, then we hookup a vacuum system inside. We go outside and send our brush system through the vent and take it all the way to our vacuum so you know, for sure, it made it all the way though your dryer vent. For extreme clogs we will first use a compressed air system to blow out as much lint as possible and then finish with the brush system. If you are already having trouble drying your clothes you need to get it done ASAP.
Most multi-unit buildings can be cleaned for $10.00 to $30.00 depending on the level of lint and size of the complex
Do we do Dryer Vent Repairs?
Typical vent repairs that we perform include: Replacing or repairing venting in attics or crawl spaces; removing small sections of drywall in laundry closets to repair or replace venting; and drilling holes in walls to run new venting. We cannot "finish" drywall. We cannot cut holes through flat roofs. (We can arrange for qualified roofers to add vent covers through roofs.) Parts, labor and trip charges make the average vent repair cost between $150 and $250.
