Are clogged clothes dryer vents a fire hazard?
A plugged dryer duct system will certainly cause a dryer to run hotter and increase the chance that something could catch fire. Dryer lint can accumulate at the outdoor vent, along the length of the duct, at duct fittings and at the dryer lint screen itself. Dryer venting systems can also become clogged if the dryer hose is crimped behind the dryer or the dryer duct is crushed or otherwise damaged during installation. A blocked, or partially blocked venting system, however, is only one link in a chain of events that must occur for a fire to start. Other events may include: failure of thermostat and limit switches in the dryer, lint inside the dryer, a missing or a damaged lint screen.
The risk of dryer vent fires can be limited by ensuring that the dryer vent length (including allowances for elbows, transitions and outdoor hood assemblies) does not exceed the dryer manufacturer’s recommendations. If it does, it may be necessary to install a dryer vent system booster fan. Regular inspection and cleaning of dryer lint screens, and the dryer duct and outdoor vent will also prevent lint build up and will keep the dryer running as effectively and efficiently as possible.
It is possible to detect dryer vent problems before they become fire hazards. Increased clothes drying times and frequent clothes dryer deactivation during duty cycles (due to the tripping of the high temperature limit switch), heat and humidity build-up in the area around the dryer are the key indicators of dryer venting problems.
We will clean your dryer vent to ensure dryer efficiency and safety.
In addition to our great house cleaning we have expanded our services to include furnace and duct cleaning as well as carpet cleaning. We provide up front and honest pricing to avoid the sticker shock of an increased price at time of service. Call us and tell us how many air vents you have and we can price the job for you. Or we can estimate based on the size of your house. We also sanitize your ducts and spray them with a bacteriocide and a fungicide to keep them fresh and clean for longer. To ensure your satisfaction we will send a camera down your ducts before and after the clean. This allows you to "see" the improvement in your air quality.
Our process is performed by attaching a highly powered State of the Art, portable vacuum Specialized for duct cleaning. We then run a rotating brush down each and every vent and through your entire HVAC system. We use this system, as it’s a more environmentally friendly approach. Our system does not require a diesel or gas truck to be running while cleaning your furnace and ducts.
