Dryer Vent Cleaning
Serving Chapel Hill and Durham, NC
Using a dryer naturally creates a large accumulation of lint. While a portion of this lint is caught in the lint trap, excess lint also travels through the dryer vent and ductwork. The hidden buildup eventually becomes a fire hazard, with excess lint having a high chance of igniting. The National Fire Protection Association reports between 15,000 to 20,000 fires caused by dryers every year across the United States, with a sizeable portion of those fires started by ignited lint.
Where Do You Need to Clean?
To keep your dryer vent clean, you will need to routinely maintain several areas. The first part is the lint trap, which needs cleaning with every use of the dryer. You can also clean deeper within the dryer, beyond the lint trap with the help of a dryer lint brush. The other areas to clean are the dryer vent and the connecting hose. This exhaust vent removes hot air from the dryer to keep it running smoothly. We recommend cleaning these areas at least once a year.
