A Little About Dryer Vents

Dryer vent ducts are usually a 4 inch diameter, so even small amounts of lint can cause excessive drying times and risk of fire.

Dryer vents in most homes are on average 10-15 feet long and have about two turns. The longer the vent, the less pressure your dryer can build up to expel the lint created from the drying process and the more lint build-up occurs. More turns in your dryer vent line also reduce the pressure of dryer’s exhaust, however, turns also pose a second problem, which is having the lint build up on the turns and corners of your vent line.

Eventually, these become blocked and can cause a fire, which will damage more than just the vent.

If you know that there are holes or cracks in your vent, be sure to inquire about dryer vent repair or complete replacement that we provide.

Another common problem is having bird nests in your dryer vent. The pine needles and leaves the birds bring into your dryer vent can block exhaust, increasing drying times as well as creating risk of fire. View each of the examples below!

How Do Dryer Vents Catch On Fire

It’s important to start with what’s inside the vent? Lint! Which means it’s dry, dust link material that extremely flammable!

The way dryers heat up the clothes, is by using a heating coil that’s installed, usually in the back of a unit for ease of access.

The heat from the coil enters the dryer drum (chamber) where the magic of drying happens.

At the same time, a fan is blowing out the moist air that goes through a lint filter and out the dryer vent (the same lint filter or screen that we empty before each use).

If there’s too much lint that bypassed the filter element, it ends up in the vent and is waiting the heat to raise until it catches fire.

The longer the dryer vent, the longer it takes for lint to accumulate.

I bought the first job on the Big Deal day for my son's new house. The duct work clearly had not been cleaned and neither return had a filter, so it was in great need of a cleaning. Both jobs went well. They arrived on time, cleaned all the register vents and cleaned the two returns. On my son's house they installed new grills on the returns that could hold filters.Since they use air rather a brush to clean out the duct work there is less of a possibility of damage to the duct work, so I also scheduled them to clean at my house a week later. It is a big improvement in air quality and flow.

The dryer is on the 2nd floor and the dryer duct is vented through the attic so he said it would be best to clean it from the attic. He brought in his equipment which was connected to his truck. We could hear all of the stuff that was being sucked out as it went through the tubes. He reconnected the duct to the vent in the roof and made it more secure than it was originally. He recommended running the dryer for 2 cycles without wet clothes to dry out the line which I did. My dryer works 100% better. Everything was left neat and clean. I definitely will call him again and highly recommend him! And it was great that he came on a Saturday!

It was the Big Deal promotion that I purchased. It worked out very well. It was a good experience. I paid an extra $200 because they did extra work while they were here, at my request. My house system was bigger than the standard one. They work with the number of air ducts and I had more than was stipulated in the paperwork. I was very impressed with the gentleman that was here doing the work. After they did the work stipulated in the deal, I let them do other things. I would definitely use them again.

We have an old house and the previous owner was a handyman. The dryer vent goes into the floor instead of being vented outside. Alex and Tony advised to get a refund because there was no vent for them to clean. I will use them in the future to get new air ducts and rerouting of the dryer vent.
