Cleaning the dryer vents will remove any lint buildup.
The amount of air that can pass through a lint-filled dryer vent is reduced. Because of this, your dryer has to work harder and consume more energy. This results in higher utility costs and a more significant possibility of the appliance breaking down. It can be expensive to replace or repair appliances. By regularly cleaning and maintaining your dryer vent, you can extend the life of your clothes dryer.
Here are a few indicators that it’s time to clean the dryer vent:
In most cases, the dryer is the source of the problem. However, if the dryer is still becoming hot and the clothes are not drying in a reasonable amount of time, say 45 minutes with a regular load, then it is time to clean the dryer vent.
A clogged dryer vent prevents hot air from escaping and traps moisture inside the dryer, making it difficult for garments to dry. We receive many recommendations from dryer maintenance specialists who have responded to inquiries about malfunctioning dryers only to realize that the problem lies in the vent. More problematic is the call from someone who buys a new dryer because they believe their old one is worn out, only to find out that the new dryer is just as clogged and defective as the old one.
Methods can differ from company to company, but most use long-reach devices that stir things up and some valuable tools that measure airflow. Only hire a company that uses a negative-pressure vacuum to clean the vents, as this will likely fail. Ask your expert how frequently they would suggest cleanings based on your lifestyle.
As easy as it seems, cleaning the dryer vent on your own is not something we recommend doing because it may very quickly become problematic. Air Duct and Beyond make use of high-quality equipment capable of cleaning your vents in a comprehensive and time-effective way. Before we certify something, we also test before and after the process using equipment that measures air speed and temperature.
If the venting from the dryer does not go outside the house, then all that moisture will be carried inside. This can lead to the development of mold and mildew, as well as the accumulation of condensation on the walls of your home. If there is too much moisture in the air, the wood in your house could decay.
Always begin by working with a reliable dryer vent service technician when your dryer vent requires cleaning. While there are instructions for cleaning a machine online, using substandard tools and techniques increases the risk of causing damage to your dryer vent system. Additionally, lint and debris can accumulate in dryer vents if not properly cleaned, leading to further dryer issues.
Hiring a qualified specialist may take a little longer, but professional cleaning is always safer and more efficient. Knowing that your dryer complies with industry maintenance guidelines will make you feel better.
