Duluth Dryer Vent Cleaning Services

 

The dryer is an appliance found in almost every home and we use it weekly if not daily. Its main purpose is to take the heat and moisture out of your clothes, then to exhaust it through a vent to the outside. Dryers can be vented long distances and generally installed with bends. This creates more places where lint can collect and birds can nest. The last thing you are likely to be thinking about is the condition of your dryer vent.

Possible Dirty Dryer Vent Problems Include:

 

  • Appliance Efficiency- A dirty vent waste energy, time, and money. Because the dryer will run longer than necessary.
  • Wear and Tear- A Dryer taking twice as long to dry clothes will cut its lifetime in half and lead to expensive repairs.
  • Carbon Monoxide - Gas dryers that are not exhausting correctly can cause carbon monoxide back up into the home.
  • Obstructions - We have found nesting, dryer sheets, and pieces of clothes; along with lint so thick it blocks the vent.
  • Fire and Property Damage - Your dryer and/or vent can ignite as a result of overheating and over worked safety controls.

 

Thunderbolt uses a 3 stage vacuum motor which runs on 2 horsepower.

Our machines are capable of cleaning up to 75 feet of air flow.

 

We take off the transition hose which connects to the wall. Mylar is the most popular transition. If you have a plastic transition, your dryer is not up to code.

Flow meter readings provided upon request.

 

 

Duluth Dryer Vent Frequent Asked Questions (FAQ's) Thunderbolt Dryer Vent Cleaning Services of Atlanta

 

How often should I clean my dryer vents in Duluth?

 

The Chimney Safety Institute "recommends a annual inspection to ensure efficient operation of your clothes dryer system." The Consumer Product Safety Commission states in their report to "check the dryer vent and exhaust vent periodically to ensure that exhaust air is escaping."

 

Every vent is installed differently; it can depend on the length of your vent, how many turns and how often the dryer is used every week. Always watch for these warning signs, your dyer getting hotter than normal, clothes taking longer to dry, and if the dryer is cutting off before the clothes are dry.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

 

How do you get all the lint out of a dryer vent?

 

There are several different applications depending on how your dryer is situated. The most common technique is with the help of the blower motor we use very flexible extension rods with a bristle brush on the end. The rods will easily navigate several 90 degree turns in your vent line.

 

This is on a rotor system so the spin action of the brush really gives the vent a thorough cleaning. The technician will move the rod/brush in and out repeatedly until the vent is clear of lint and obstructions.

 

The most common way is done from the outside which keeps your home spotless. This is an extremely effective method to give your dyer vent a clearer passage for the moist hot air to move through.

 

Can you replace the old worn out hose behind my dryer?

Yes we can! We often see the white vinyl vent coming out the back of dryers we service. This type of vent pipe is very highly flammable and causes dangerous fumes when burning.

 

Our trucks are equipped to completely replace an old unsafe dryer vent with a new semi rigid metal vent where needed in most cases.

 

Do you offer air duct cleaning services in Duluth as well?

Yes we do! Thunderbolt can clean your entire air duct unit. No job is too big or too small. For more information, see our air duct cleaning service here.

 

 

What are your Duluth Dryer Vent Cleaning concerns?

 

 

 

Do you know what you probably have in your home or apartment that is annually responsible for around 15,000 fires, 20 deaths, over 300 injuries and more than $80 million in property damage?!

 

Answer: Your clothes dryer. And if you have an electric clothes dryer, did you know the chance of fire is 250% greater than if you have a gas dryer?

There is probably an unbelievable amount of dangerous lint lining the walls of your dryer ducting and inside your dryer right now that you need to clean out. It does not matter that you regularly clean out the lint filter in your dryer, "lint happens." Loads of clothes taking longer and longer to dry is a classic sign of lint build-up. Many people resort to " do it yourself (diy) campaigns using dryer vent cleaning tools only to find they've gotten themselves into a bigger mess.

 

People also wonder how long or how often they should be cleaned. Answer: Every year.
