WHEN IS IT TIME TO HAVE MY CLOTHES DRYER VENT CLEANED?

Tell-tale signs of dryer vent obstruction: laundry takes an unusually long time to dry and you can sense humidity in your laundry room. These signs are annoying, but they warn of a more serious problem. Dryer lint is highly flammable and can be a fire hazard. If you notice these signs, it is time to have the vent cleaned.

How quickly a dryer vent becomes lint-clogged depends on its configuration. Clogging occurs more frequently in homes with long vent pipes and many bends between the dryer and the outside wall.

WHY SHOULD I CONSIDER AIR DUCT CLEANING?

Time takes its toll in all buildings with forced air heating systems. Dust, dirt, and other debris accumulate in the ductwork.

This dirt can:

  • provide a hospitable environment for mold.
  • be blown directly into your home during furnace and air conditioner operation.
  • restrict air flow, causing your equipment to work less efficiently.

Remodeling projects can add sawdust, drywall dust, nails, etc. to the mix. Pet hair and pollen can become trapped in ductwork. Periodic duct cleaning removes these materials from your indoor air system.

How frequently to have this service performed depends on the home and the homeowner. For example, households with pets often have more dirt in the air and therefore in the ductwork. People with significant allergies or asthma might benefit from more frequent duct cleaning.

We especially recommend duct cleaning immediately following major home remodeling. Another appropriate time is just prior to moving into a new home. Otherwise, every 7-12 years is sufficient for most homes.
