Frequently Asked Questions About Dryer Vents

  • What does dryer vent cleaning include? +

    The dryer vent technician will thoroughly inspect and clean your venting system, which can over time become clogged with dust and debris, as well as nesting insects and animals. We will also verify that your dryer vent is sized and installed correctly. For example, plastic ducts (flammable) that join the dryer to the wall will be replaced with metal ducts (non-flammable).

    These inspections are more necessary now than they once were because dryers in newer homes are typically located away from outside walls (in places like bathrooms, kitchens, and hall closets), creating longer venting distances with more bending. As a result, dryer ducts are harder to access, and this extra length means more surface area where lint can collect and animals and birds can hide.

  • Why should I have my dryer duct cleaned? +

    It is recommended that you have your clothes dryer duct cleaned annually because lint and debris can build up and cause your dryer to exhaust at less than optimum efficiency.

    This creates potentially hazardous conditions, including carbon monoxide intrusion and the possibility for fires. If your clothes dryer is improperly vented or the exhaust duct is blocked by lint or debris, carbon monoxide can leak into your living space and poison your family.

  • Why use a chimney sweep company to clean my dryer vent? +

    The practice of sweeping a chimney and cleaning out a clothes dryer duct are actually very similar. With both jobs, we’re accessing and cleaning tight spaces that aren’t visible, but that play hugely important roles in the safety and air quality of your home.

    Furthermore, the dryer duct acts like a “chimney” for your dryer, carrying away toxic gases and debris, the same as your chimney does.

  • What are birds and rodents doing in my dryer vent? +

    Birds, mice, and other pests and insects can enter your dryer vent (usually from the outside of your home) and make a nest there. This infestation typically compromises your dryer’s venting capability, and can eventually lead to a dryer failure or a fire. We are happy to rodent-proof your dryer duct.
  • Can I install my own dryer and dryer vent? +

    We don’t recommend it. Incorrect installation is one of the leading causes of dryer fires. Hire a professional to hook up your clothes dryer so that you can rest easy, knowing that it is venting properly and safely.
