Inspect, Diagnose & Repair – Dryer Vent Cleaning
Many people assume their dryer is the problem when their clothes aren’t drying as they should. So, they make the mistake of calling an appliance repairman when the issue is actually the dryer vent.
If your dryer generates enough heat but still takes 55+ minutes to dry a load, it’s a sign that your vent needs cleaning. At AirWiz Duct Cleaning, we have professionals who’ll ensure your dryer vent is properly installed, and clean and troubleshoot minor problems to ensure efficient operation.
How dryer vents work
Dryers work by tumbling wet clothes through heated air inside a rotating drum. The hot air evaporates moisture from the clothes and then traps and pushes it out of the dryer using a fan. The moist air is fanned from the dryer to the outside through the vent.
Note: According to the 2009 IRC (International Residential Code) M1502, the dryer vent should be made from a 28-gauge thick metal, with a 2-inch radius, and smooth in the interior.
Dryer Vent Inspection
Our professionals aim to ensure your dryer works optimally and protects your home from fires caused by exhaust duct obstructions, improper clothes dryer exhaust duct installation, and non-code-compliant materials.
The most common cause of dryer fires is dryer lint. It causes about 15,500 dryer fires every year resulting in property damage amounting to $209 million. Because of this, dryer vent inspections are important. In fact, dryer manufacturers recommend having professional dryer vent inspection and cleaning once a year to remove lint build-up and recover proper airflow. However, larger households might need three dryer vent cleaning and inspections annually.
Our experts conduct visual inspections of the entire dryer exhaust system:
- Lint traps
- Vent lines
- Joint connections
- Washer hoses
- Termination location
Following the inspection, we’ll issue a written estimate and guide you on the services you need to safeguard your home.
