what is dryer vent cleaning?
Dryer vent cleaning is the cleaning of the dryer exhaust line from the back of the dryer to the exterior of the building.
why is dryer vent cleaning important?
According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), over 17,000 structural fires occur each year as a result of a dryer fire. The NFPA further states that the #1 cause of a dryer malfunction is not cleaning out the dryer vent, which accounts for 1/3 of all dryer fires. It also increases the efficiency of the dryer itself. The lint and debris that collects in the clothes dryer duct causes your dryer to work harder and run longer. A clogged vent could contribute to high levels of carbon monoxide or even cause a fire.

WARNING signs it’s time to clean your dryer vent
The following can occur as a result of a clogged dryer vent: fires, wear and tear on the dryer, high utility bills and carbon monoxide poisoning.
As a part of your building’s maintenance program, clean the lint out of the lint trap between each cycle and on a six to twelve month basis, call Advanced Furnace & Air Duct Cleaning for your professional dryer vent clean out.
our dryer vent cleaning process
Advanced connects our power vacuum truck to the duct behind the dryer. This puts the dryer duct under negative suction.
Next, our technician will go to the exterior, the point of exhaust located on the outside of the building.
Our air charged whip is sent down the dryer duct to dislodge all lint and debris.
As the lint and debris becomes dislodged, the negative suction pulls it back into the vacuum truck. Leaving no mess behind and ensuring a proper dryer vent cleaning.
How our process is different from the rest
The only fail proof way to guarantee the dryer duct is free of lint and debris is to ensure the dryer duct is under 100% negative suction. In order to get the dryer duct under complete suction, the dryer must be disconnected from the duct and then the duct must be connected to the vacuum truck as we send the air charged dislodger in from the exhaust point of the dryer duct, leaving no mess. We do not use a leaf blower or drill powered brush, as these methods often cause clogs.
We have the proper equipment to ensure this process is done properly to help prevent a dryer fire.

Advanced Air Duct Cleaning has answers
Birds and other small animals love dryer vents. They can build nests in the line causing serious clogs. You can discourage animals from claiming your dryer vent line as their new warm toasty home by installing the proper guard. Additionally, guards help to prevent back pressure from the outside wind in your dryer duct. Back pressure can cause carbon monoxide to enter your home. At Advanced, we offer both metal and plastic guards for installation depending on the homeowner’s goal and budget.
