Dryer Vent Cleaning is the most overlooked fire hazard in your home today. Most families do not even know the dangers until they have had a fire and then it is too late. Having a well maintained dryer vent is vital for smooth airflow.
Clothes dryers were involved in one out of every 24 home structure fires reported to U.S. fire departments in 2011-2014.
Here are some reasons you would need to clean your Dryer Vent ducting
1. Drying time is longer than one cycle
When a dryer vent is clogged, the drying cycle can take more than one cycle which will cost you to waste energy.
2. Your Clothe Dryer is extremely hot when you touch it.
Has your clothing ever been to hot at the end of a cycle and the dryer is hot to touch? If your Vent is clogged, it wastes energy, and prematurely cause the heating element and blower in the dryer to wear out faster.
3. You notice a burning or mildew type smell.
When you run your dryer if you smell a burning odor? Lint can be built up in the exhaust tube, lint trap and in the drum causing it to get too hot, it can have a burning smell or even catch on fire.
4. The exhaust flap doesn’t open properly.
Another red flag that you’re due for a cleaning is if you can see lint or debris around the dryer hose or outside vent opening: or the duct exit flap does not open. An outside vent that doesn’t open when the dryer is running means air flow has been restricted due to lint buildup.
5. It’s been longer than a year since your last inspection.
Dryer vent ducts should be inspected at least once a year to reduce the risk of fires and carbon monoxide poisoning.
If you hire a C-DET (Certified Dryer Exhaust Technician) for your vent cleaning, expect to pay between $125 to $250, depending on the length and location of the vent. If the exterior exhaust vent is easily accessible, Roof cleanings and Stackable units can cost more. BE AWARE of uncertified companies who offer you a low price and will not properly clean your vent. If your vent is not cleaned correctly it can leave you with a fire hazard in your home.
