Many people are unaware of the dangers that lurk around their homes. One of the most serious is the danger that is presented by dryer vents that are clogged with lint. Lint is one of the most flammable materials that can be found around the home. When it is allowed to accumulate in heat-producing appliances like dryers and their vent pipes, it can combust and lead to large-scale property damage. Nearly 16,000 homes around the US have been affected by fires stemming from dirty dryer vent pipes.

Benefits of Dryer Vent Cleaning Service
Preventing fires should be reason enough to have your dryer vents inspected. However, cleaning the dryer vent pipe has a slew of other benefits as well. Among these are:
- Efficiency: Dryers are designed to pull hot air through tumbling clothes. Anything that inhibits this will lower their efficiency and raise their operating costs. Less airflow through your dryer ducts will certainly lower efficiency so cleaning them will restore performance.
- Safety: Obstructions in your dryer lint pipe restrict flow allowing heat to build up inside the drum of the dryer. This can lead to fires or melting of synthetic fabrics.
- It’s Better for Your Clothes: Clean lint pipes are better for your clothes because they prevent the air in a dryer from overheating. Dryers that can’t regulate their heat can melt or shrink clothes. Additionally, dryers that take too long to dry cause clothes to tumble repeatedly for much longer than they should, prematurely wearing them out.
- Easier on Dryers: Dryers that have long cycles and or on the borderline of overheating will wear out quicker and require repairs or replacement.
How We Clean Out Dryer Vents
Star Air Conditioning & Heating is the local choice for dryer vent cleaning and air conditioning duct cleaning. We have the tools and experience necessary to keep your home safe from fires and the air you breathe clean as well. We start by sending a camera into your dryer ducts to look for a buildup of lint. Lint coming out a dryer is usually wet from the moisture on the clothes so it forms tight clumps. This also allows it to adhere to the inner walls of the pipe and catch on joints in the dryer duct.
After we see what the inside of the pipe looks like, we use special equipment to scrub out the inner walls of the ducts. Rotary brushes are pushed into the duct where they know built-up lint off of the walls. Powerful vacuums whisk away the removed lint so that it is gone for good.
