Lint and debris buildup inside dryer vents reduces the efficiency of your clothes dryer, and can even lead to a fire. This is why you need dryer vent cleaning in Ashburn, Bethesda, MD, Gaithersburg, Leesburg, VA, Reston, Rockville, MD, Sterling, VA, and the surrounding areas. Below we provide some important details about the vent cleaning process.

What Does Dryer Vent Cleaning Involve?

ProClean Air Duct Cleaning offers a four-step process that is straightforward. The technicians will arrive in clearly marked vehicles and uniforms so you know who is there. They will then perform an inspection of your dryer vents to determine what your price will be, and will get your approval before they do any work. Once you approve of everything, they will get to work on your dryer vent cleaning. After they are done, you get to inspect the work and they aren’t done until you are satisfied.

How Often Should a Dryer Vent be Cleaned?

Dryer vents should be cleaned annually, and there are several telltale signs that point to needing a dryer vent cleaning. If you have a build-up of lint behind your dryer, if your dryer takes more than a single drying cycle to fully dry your clothes, if your dryer is shutting off prematurely due to excessive heat, if you are finding an excessive amount of lint on your clothes after the drying cycle, or if the top of your dryer is hot to the touch or if your clothing is excessively hot after a drying cycle, any of these can be indicators that your dryer vents need to be cleaned.

Are Dirty Dryer Vents a Fire Hazard?

The build-up of dryer lint is definitely a fire hazard. Over 2,900 home clothes dryer fires are reported each year. Because the weather in winter isn’t conducive to drying clothes outdoors, the majority of clothes dryer fires happen during the fall and winter when dryers are more heavily used. And while you can help prevent these fires by cleaning out the lint trap on your dryer every time you use it, it is still important to check the dryer vents and have vent cleaning annually to prevent lint from becoming a fire hazard in your home.
