Dryer Vent Cleaning Is Easy & Mess-Free With Robinson Maintenance Repair
Is your dryer vent filled with lint or obstructions? We can help. On top of our chimney and fireplace services, we also offer professional dryer vent cleanings and inspections. Our team of CSIA Certified Dryer Exhaust Technicians has been trained and educated on how to properly maintain dryer vents so that the attached appliance continues to operate at high levels of safety and efficiency. Because our customers’ safety and comfort is of the utmost importance to us, offering dryer vent cleaning just makes sense.
Why is dryer vent cleaning so important?
- Dirty dryer vents can cause dryer vent fires.
- A lint-clogged dryer vent will not make your clothes dryer’s job easy, and can actually shorten the service life of your clothes dryer.
- A clogged or dirty dryer vent will waste energy, money, and time.
- Gas dryers can pump carbon monoxide back into your home if the venting is blocked.
Ok, so dryer vent cleaning is important because it helps you save time, keep energy bills low, prolong the service life of your dryer, prevent carbon monoxide poisoning, and reduce your risk of fire. But how can you tell if it’s time to have your dryer venting cleaned?
When To Have Your Dryer Vents Cleaned
There isn’t really a rule of thumb for how often dryer vents need cleaning because it largely depends on how much use the dryer gets and how long the venting is.
If you’re doing laundry for the whole family every other day, lint will accumulate faster in your dryer vent than it would in the dryer vents of a bachelor who saves laundry day for holidays. Likewise, if your vent has long and winding paths to travel, there are more areas for lint to accumulate and more places for ducting to come loose, while someone with a straight and short external wall termination won’t have as much of an issue.
The best thing to do is to schedule annual inspections with a Certified Dryer Exhaust Technician. We use highly effective diagnostic tools to evaluate the airflow within the dryer vents and detect and resolve clogs and blockages before they become real problems. We’ll let you know when and if it’s time to have your dryer vents cleaned, but here are some other signs to keep an eye out for:
- Does your dryer run longer than it used to in order to dry a normal load of laundry?
- Does your dryer get really hot to the touch when in use?
- Is there lint around your dryer or in other areas of the home?
- Do your clothes come out of the dryer with a slight burning smell or other odd odor?
- Is there lint all around the outside dryer termination?
If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, it’s probably a good time to schedule an inspection and cleaning.
Here at RMR, we use special tools and equipment to ensure a thorough job, no matter how long, short, straight, or winding the dryer vents are. We can remove all lint, as well as any animal nests or other blockages that might be present in the vents, and let you know if it’s time to have a new termination cap installed. And the best part is: with RMR, there’s no mess. We make sure every last bit of lint is contained and removed from your home and property — guaranteed.
