As your trusted dryer vent cleaning contractor in Denver, CO we would like to give you an overview of how we thoroughly clean dryer vents to ensure against risk of fire or other damage that can result from lint buildup in the vents.
Recognizing Signs of Buildup
Are you noticing that your clothes are taking longer to dry or not fully drying? Are they coming out of the dryer exceptionally hot? Is your outside exhaust vent flapper failing to open? Are you smelling a burnt smell in your laundry room but your clothes seem fine? If you answered, “Yes,” to any of these questions, a thorough dryer vent cleaning by a trusted Denver, CO contractor is very likely necessary.
Cleaning the Lint Trap and Cavity
To begin, we unplug the dryer and, if applicable, close the gas valve. We use the proper tools for the job including professional dryer cleaning kits. We use separate brushes for the lint trap cavity and vent and clean each thoroughly. Some people think simply vacuuming these things is sufficient, but a vacuum cleaner alone will not get the job done. As a trusted professional dryer vent cleaning service in Denver, CO, we recognize the value in investing in the tools needed to get the job done and we never cut corners.
Cleaning the Vent
We first disconnect the duct joint closest to the dryer. We then carefully pull the dryer away from the wall. Once that is done, we disconnect each subsequent section and rotate duct brush to capture as much lint and debris as possible. This method does grab the majority, often with a single grab. We repeat this action several times to be certain the vent is also spotless and free of any hazardous debris.
Once the brush comes out consistently clean, we scour the inside of the vent to break up any stubborn remaining lint and debris. We finish by vacuuming each section as a good preventive measure to ensure a thorough dryer vent cleaning.
Finally, before we leave, we always reassemble the vent sections and make sure everything is reconnected and ready to go. We think you will be amazed at how much debris comes out, especially if the vents have not been cleaned in a while.
