Over time, lint and debris build up inside dryer vents, causing fire hazards and decreasing the efficiency of your clothes dryer. There are over 15,000 fires caused by dryer vents in the U.S. each year. Our dryer vent cleaning process removes clogs to ensure proper ventilation and airflow.
Proclean professionals use high pressure air and specialized tools to clean and aid in the removal of lint, debris, and other obstructions found in the dryer vent. Our technicians ensure that the entire dryer vent line is clear—from entry to termination point-the entire run.
Dryer manufacturers recommend having your dryer vents inspected and cleaned yearly to prevent clogs from affecting the performance and safety of your clothes dryer. Common warning signs include:
- Excess Lint Behind Dryer – Clogged dryer vents can prevent lint from properly passing through the vent system. This issue can cause a buildup of lint behind your dryer.
- Longer Dryer Time – If your clothes are not drying in one cycle this is a strong sign that there may be an obstruction in your dryer vent preventing the proper airflow needed to work efficiently.
- Overheat Shut Off – When a vent line is clogged your dryer has to work harder and does not allow heat to be vented properly, causing it to overheat. Dryers that overheat typically shut off to prevent a fire. This warning should not be taken lightly; we recommend having a professional look at your system before your next load of laundry.
- Excess Lint on Clothing – Obstructed dryer vents do not allow your dryer to properly expel lint, causing lint to accumulate on clothing during a drying cycle.
- Hot Dryer & Hot Clothes – If the top of your dryer is hot to the touch, or if clothing is excessively hot after a drying cycle, it can be a warning sign that there is inadequate airflow caused by a clogged dryer vent.
