Is your dryer starting to take longer and longer to dry your clothes? It may be time to clean the lint from your dryer duct. Most people know to remove lint from the trap or screen near the front of the dryer door, but cleaning the dryer exhaust duct is necessary from time to time as well. In fact, failure to do so can result in fire. If youve never had your dryer duct cleaned out, its time to seek the services of a local dryer vent cleaning company. Most urban areas have multiple dryer vent cleaning services to choose from. They can be found using your local phone book or even your favorite search engine. It pays to call around before you hire such a service. Prices and services offered will vary from company to company. A typical dryer vent cleaning will consist of complete dryer duct and dryer exhaust cleaning. A dryer vent brush is used to loosen lint that has accumulated over time. A vacuum hose is then attached to suck out the lint and remove any other dust and debris that may have settled in the dryer duct. Many local dryer vent cleaning services are also air duct cleaners. They will vacuum out the air ducts in your home to remove dust, pet hair and dander from your air conditioning and heating ducts and vents. If you suspect mold in your air ducts, you can request that a technician spray disinfectant through your air ducts to thoroughly clean them. Air conditioning and heating ducts carry air into your home. With that air can come allergens and harmful bacteria. Hiring air duct cleaners can do wonders for your health and bring you peace of mind.
