Dryer Vent Cleaning League City TX
If your clothes dryer isn't as efficient as it used to be, the problem may not be with the machine itself but rather with the vent. At AdvantaClean, we know that dryer vent cleaning isn't at the top of most homeowners' to-do lists, which is why we want our customers in League City, TX, to understand why it's so important.
The Purpose of Dryer Vent Cleaning
Dryer vents are constantly bombarded by the lint, dirt, and warm air that are being ejected whenever the clothes dryer does its job. Naturally, these obstructions will begin to clog up the vents and cause problems. If you've noticed that your clothes take longer to dry, are extremely hot, and come out with lots of lint, these are warning signs. Another is when the dryer lid is hot to the touch. You might have also seen a rise in your electricity bill.
Without a dryer vent cleaning, you may even wind up starting a fire because lint is a flammable material. The fire safety recommendation is that you get this task done at least once a year.
Another common problem is mold. This fungus likes to grow in dank, enclosed spaces. The constant flow of warm air can develop moisture in your vents, which will condense and invite the mold. The moment you smell a musty odor coming from the vent, contact us; we're available 24/7 in case of emergencies, and we'll send out a team as soon as possible to remove the mold. You don't want your occupants to be exposed because the symptoms can include headaches, fever, and respiratory problems.

The Dryer Vent Cleaning Process
Our team knows that dryer vents can range in length from a foot to sometimes 30 or 40 feet; it all depends on whether the system vents out the side of the building or out the roof. In either case, you can expect us to clean every inch of the vent, even if it requires us to go behind walls and into the attic.
Dryer vent cleaning begins with us detaching the vent from the transition hose and addressing problems in both. We'll scrape away the caked-up dirt and vacuum that and all the lint up. Since our vacuums are equipped with HEPA filters, mold removal won't be a problem either. We're a member of the Mold Inspection Consulting and Remediation Organization (MICRO).
After we've removed the mold and mildew, we'll disinfect these areas with an EPA-approved chemical. We'll put the vent back together and finish our dryer vent cleaning by treating the wall or roof cap.
