Dryer Vent Cleaning

Did you know that dryer vent fires are more common than chimney fires?
The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports dryer related home fires are on the increase. CPSC figures show that in 1997 there were 16,800 dryer fires which caused 30 deaths, 430 injuries and 97.3 million dollars in property damage.
Flammable lint, and dirt and dust accumulate quite rapidly inside the dryer vent (the lint screen does not catch all of it).
It is recommended that dryer vents and the dryer chassis be cleaned out every 3 - 6 months depending on the extent of the use of your dryer.
Commercial dryers need to be cleaned more often.
Dryer vent cleaning improves the safety and efficiency of your dryer. As dryer vents become filled with lint and other debris, drying time increases and can cause the dryer itself to overheat.
This increases energy consumption since the dryer has to run longerto dry your clothes and can also cause fires in the dryer or the dryer duct.
If you have noticed that your dryer is running longer than it used to you may need to have the dryer vent cleaned.
Some dryer vents are relatively short and straight and can be cleaned easily by the homeowner, but others aren't that easy and may require the use of special tools and equipment.
Affordable Air Duct Cleaning has tools specifically designed to clean dryer vents and with these tools we are able to do a thorough job of cleaning even the most difficult installations. While dryer vents are routinely blocked with lint, animal nesting is also another frequent cause of dryer vent blockage and our equipment allows us to remove these blockages as well.
Another problem created by blocked dryer vents serving gas dryers is the possibility of carbon monoxide, the silent killer", seepage into your home. If the dryer is not exhausting properly to the outdoors, CO can back up into the home.
