What are the dryer vents?
A dryer vent is essential to the functioning of your clothes dryer. It is the element in charge of regulating heat within the system by controlling the flow of air. Without a correctly functioning vent, your dryer cannot work, and there is a high risk of fire. Keeping the vent clean is a simple way to ensure your dryer functions properly and to its best. A low-cost service, be sure to invest in this small procedure now to prevent higher repair costs later! For all your installation, repair, and cleaning requirements, Sterling Heights Air Duct Cleaners are the team to help.
Why do they need to be cleaned?
Your dryer works by tumbling your wet items through heated air. The hot air causes the moisture to evaporate. A fan picks up the moisture and sends it out of the dryer through the dryer vent. Every dryer has a vent for this action to take place, and it usually connects to a pipe that feeds to outside your property to extract the water from the machine. As the evaporated moisture is passed out through the vent all sorts of debris can become trapped. Over time this debris can build up to become a blockage that will prevent the vent from circulating air. A blockage of this kind will mean that your machine heats up and becomes a real fire hazard. Work with a professional like us to ensure that your property is kept safe!
How do we clean them?
Because your dryer is connected to a pipe that feeds outside of your property, we must first go through a process to gain access to the vent. Once this has been achieved, we must clear out the tube, the vent itself, and the vent cap. Utilizing specialist equipment we dislodge any dirt, lint, or debris. Next, a device similar to a vacuum suctions the waste out of the system. This may be enough in some circumstances, however, professional quality products may need to be applied to ensure that your machine remains functioning at its best with longevity.
Alongside our cleaning service, we are also available to perform repairs to your dryer vent. It is essential that if you think there may be a problem you stop using the device until a professional has made a complete assessment.
