Dryer Vent Cleaning
There is no question that your laundry dryer plays an important role in your home. And while homeowners are often aware of issues with the dryer unit itself, it can be easy to overlook issues with your dryer vent.

Over time, you dryer vent will accumulate debris, lint, dust, and dirt. If this is allowed to continue, soon your vent will not operate effectively. It is designed to divert hot air from the dryer to a safe area, typically outside your home.
A clogged dryer causes the air to move more slowly or will trap heat, leading to dangerous conditions and a possible fire hazard.
Signs It Is Time to Clean Your Dryer Vent
Build-up of lint in your dryer vent reduces the airflow & subsequently the efficiency of your dryer. It also causes it to use more energy to dry your clothes, thereby costing you more money. Signs it’s time to clean your dryer vent: A musty odor is noticed in the clothing following the drying cycle. Debris, lint or even a birds nest is noticeable in the outside vent cover. Clothing seems unusually hot to touch after a complete drying cycle. Having to do more than one cycle to get the clothes dry.
Our technicians could efficiently clean out your dryer vent starting by cleaning the lint filter compartment and then disconnecting the pipe from behind the dryer. We use rotary brushes, air whips and a vacuum to dislodge any lint and debris built up. We will also brush out the pipe from the outside vent to ensure that it's completely clear of any blockage. We use a CFM (Air Flow Meter) to measure the air pressure before and after to make sure there’s no restrictions once the job is completed.
A clogged dryer vent not only means your appliance isn’t operating at its peak efficiency, it also poses a safety risk in the form of potential fires. For more information about our dryer vent cleaning and other services, contact us today at ER Air to schedule your free home estimate.
