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. This ensures that the exhaust line and vent is free of lint and debris.
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 decreases the efficiency of the dryer itself. The lint and debris that builds up in the clothes dryer exhaust line and vent 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, lint trap should be cleaned between each cycle. Every six to twelve months, call Advanced Furnace & Air Duct Cleaning to schedule a 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.
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 a vacuum truck. At Advanced, we have the proper equipment to create the negative suction to complete the job.

Birds and other small animals love dryer vents. They can build nests in the line causing serious clogs. To discourage animals from taking up residence in the warmth of your dryer vent, proper guards should be installed. Dryer vent guards also help to prevent back pressure from the outside wind in your dryer duct. Back pressure can cause carbon monoxide to enter your building. At Advanced, we offer both metal and plastic guards for installation depending on the building’s goals and budget.
