Ask Yourself These Five Questions:
- Does your dryer take more than 45 minutes to dry a load?
- Has your heating element ever burned out?
- Have you just replaced your dryer?
- Is your dryer in the middle of the house? (Long & horizontal runs usually collect more lint.)
- Do you have birds nesting in your vent?
Answering “Yes” to any of the above questions means you may need the vent system professionally cleaned. Stars Chimney Service is your answer to a dirty dryer vent.
HERE ARE 3 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD GET YOUR DRYER VENT CLEANED BY STARS.
Reason Number One There were 15,500* dryer vent fires last year. Most people clean out their lint filter now and then and that’s it. But the dryer vent duct is where lint can really build up and get clogged.
Reason Number Two Lint will build-up and wear out your dryer, heating element, and lead to other potentially dangerous scenarios. Reason Number Three Lint buildup takes more energy and $$$ to dry your clothes. A dryer vent clogged with lint reduces airflow so your dryer doesn’t dry as efficiently.
How do we clean dryer vents?
With over 40 years of experience cleaning dryer vents, a standard cleaning will involve a few steps. These steps involve unhooking the dryer, loosening all hard, wet, and soft lint within the vent by using a 4″ brush that agitates the interior venting. We then use a high powered blower to push the lint out of the system. We also check all connections and clamps. Stars can service almost all venting situations, including today’s extremely long vent duct with specials tools.
