Dryer Vent Cleanout
“Where Communication and Commitment Come Together”
Expert Dryer Vent Cleanout
When considering a place to live, many families put safety at the top of their list. Clogged dryer vents are one of the leading causes of fires in apartment homes, so it’s important to have them cleaned on an annual basis.
How Do We Clean?
- Clean from the inside of the unit.
- Unhook the dryer and clean the lint trey.
- Use a power rotary brush in conjunction with a specialized vacuum system.
- Break up all clogs and suck up the debris, resulting in a zero-mess clean.
- Hook back up the dryer and turn on to ensure it is operating correctly.
What Happens When You Don’t Clean the Dryer Vent?
Failing to clean the dryer vent in your apartment building results in dangerous lint buildup that can cause many problems in individual units or the property as a whole, including:
Less Efficient Dryers
A buildup of lint makes it more difficult for your dryers to release hot air through their vents, making each dryer work harder and raising your electricity bill or that of your residents.
Blocked dryer vents can also affect how well your dryers dry clothing. Vents don’t only empty your dryers of hot air, but remove humidity as well. When your dryers can’t push out the heat and humidity generated inside a dryer, clothing won’t dry as well.
The most dangerous side effect of blocked dryer vents consists of vent fires. Trapped lint can overheat in the vents and ignite, or the lint might create enough static to spark a fire. Dryer vent fires can destroy an entire apartment building and displace hundreds of people, besides endangering them during the fire itself.
