Dryer Vent Cleaning

Get your dryer vent professionally vacuumed.

Who knows what treasures you’ll find?

But more important than retrieving a few coins and a gum wrapper, cleaning your vent helps increase the lifespan of your dryer and improves energy efficiency.

Vacuuming also decreases a potential fire hazard. Most homeowners know it’s important to clear out the lint trap after each load of laundry. However, the greater concern is the lint you can’t see. Flammable material builds up in the dryer vent and ducts, which can cause the dryer to operate at higher-than-normal temperatures and potentially catch fire.
