Dryer Vent Cleaning Independence MO
Dryer vent cleaning usually isn't at the top of homeowners' to-do lists, but we want you to know how important this service is. We're your local AdvantaClean branch, and we provide the people of Independence, MO, with work that's backed by a more than 20-year-old nationwide brand. We're certified by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA), so we have an Air System Cleaning Specialist on staff who can explain the whole process to you. Below is just a brief guide.
WHY Get DRYER VENT CLEANING?
The big metal or plastic tube that comes out of your clothes dryer and exits out the side of your home or at your roof is the dryer vent. When your dryer is in operation, it sends warm air and lint out of your home through the vent, but sooner or later lint begins to accumulate inside. Without a dryer vent cleaning, this highly flammable material can start a fire inside the vent. For this reason alone, you should have this job done at least once a year; it's never enough to clean the lint filter.
Remember that a clogged up vent can affect your dryer's performance and shorten its life span. Warning signs to look out for include longer drying times, excess lint on your clothes, and a lid that's unnaturally hot to the touch.
Another reason to get a dryer vent cleaning is the possibility of mold growth. Mold loves to dwell in warm, moist, enclosed spaces, so if the warm air ever condenses, your vent will become its number one target. Exposure to this fungus can lead to flu-like symptoms, headaches, and sometimes physical and mental impairment.
What our team will do
We'll perform a quick inspection before proceeding to dryer vent cleaning; that way, we can determine the extent of the lint build-up and the presence of any mold and mildew. After you approve of our estimate, our team will brush out your lint or scrape it out if it has become sticky from condensation. We'll then vacuum it up. Mold and other contaminants will be effectively trapped thanks to our High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters. We'll also disinfect your surfaces with an antimicrobial chemical registered by the EPA.
Don't worry if your vent reaches all the way up to the roof; we'll detach the vent at its joints if necessary to get every hard-to-reach area. We can end our dryer vent cleaning by taking care of the wall cap or roof cap.
