Dryer Vent Cleaning
Dryer vent cleaning improves the safty and efficiency of your dryer vent installation. As a dryer vent becomes filled with lint and other debris, drying time increases and can cause the dryer to overheat.
This increases energy consumption since the dryer has to run longer to dry your clothes and can also lead to a dryer fire. The US Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that 15,600 dryer fires occur annually resulting in 20 deaths, 370 injuries.
If you have noticed that your dryer is taking longer to dry a load of laundry then it used to, have the dryer vent cleaned. Some dryer vents are relatively short and straight and can easily be cleaned by the home owner. Others are not that easy, and may require the use of specialized tools and equipment. Enviro-Steem has the specialized tools and equipment specifically designed for this purpose, with these tools we are able to do a thorough job of cleaning even the most challenging dryer vent installations. While dryer vents are routinely blocked with lint, animal nesting is also another frequent cause of dryer vent blockage. Our equipment allows us to remove these blockages as well.
It is recommended that your dryer vent be cleaned at least once every two years. If you have never had your dryer vent cleaned before, then you should definitely consider having this service done. In many cases, the cost of the dryer vent cleaning will be recovered over the next year in energy savings alone.
