Just like every other machine, dryer vents are also susceptible to failure if they are not taken care of in a timely fashion. Although it is advised to get your dryer vents cleaned at least once a year if you’re unable to get out enough time, you can always choose to clean them once every two years, not more than that. If left unattended, the lint build-up in your dryer vents can lead to a devastating fire breakout.
There are some possible warning signs which indicate that your dryer vent is clogged. If you notice any of the following, it is high time you get your vents cleaned.
- Your clothes are taking too long to dry
- The cycle time has increased
- The lint trap is full after only one or two loads
- There is excessive heat inside the laundry room
- The clothes are extremely hot to touch after the cycle is complete
- The clothes come out of the dryer smelling musty
Lint traps should ideally be cleaned after every load. This is because the lint that gets accumulated in the traps can eventually make its way to the vents & ducts, causing a clog.
It is advised that you should get your dryer vents cleaned at least once a year by our professionals. Do you have a household that has a dryer vent and you have children & pets always playing around? Then you should go for a dryer vent cleanup service twice a year, just in case.
Our dryer vent cleaning professionals at Alpha Clean Air can assist you in choosing the most suitable package depending on your usage & requirement.
The average length of a dryer vent is up to 35 feet. If your duct is longer than that, it might cause a significant decrease in the efficiency of your dryer. Dryer vents have 45-degree and 90-degree turns which approximates an additional 2.5 feet & 5 feet on each turn within the dryer vent.
The process of clearing up lint and other debris from the dryer vents is pretty straightforward. We use professional cleaning equipment to initially loosen the lint build-up and then vacuum it out through powerful suction trucks or advanced cleaning equipment. Once the lint & other stubborn debris is loosened up, we then remove them using a powerful suction equipment. After the cleaning process is complete, we open up all the inlets present in the dryer & blow compressed air to ensure that no lint is present in any of the crevices. Once complete, we sanitize the entire ducting system with normally eco-friendly disinfectants. Now, your dryer unit will work like new and our teams will test-run it to make sure it’s working correctly!
Although it is possible for you to clear the lint build-up in your dryer vents on your own, we would not recommend doing so. This is because dryer vents are located in hard-to-reach areas and most people do not have the required equipment or knowledge to carry out a safe & thorough cleaning. Moreover, trying to clean your dryer vents on your own can be extremely dangerous as there is a risk of electric shock or fire.
