Dryer Vent Cleaning

Professional Dryer Vent Cleaning Services

Cleaning your dryer vent is something all homeowners should do regularly. It’s important not only for your home’s efficiency but also your family’s safety. Clogged and dirty dryer vents are among the leading causes of house fires. Your clogged vents could be also be causing your dryer to work twice as hard, and costing you money. If you are noticing signs that your dryer is not working as it should, or other signs of a clogged vent, it’s time to contact a professional for a cleaning.

The Importance of Keeping Your Dryer Vent Clean

When to Clean

Why to Clean

Dryer vent cleaning needs to be done at least once a year. However, your cleaning frequency should increase to twice a year based on your family size, number of pets, and type of laundry. All of these factors increase the amount of lint and hair that accumulates in your vents. It’s time for a cleaning if you’re noticing any of the following:

  • Laundry is drying slowly
  • Dryer exterior gets very hot
  • Excess debris around the hose
  • Burning smell
  • Vent hood flap doesn’t open properly

If these signs are present, your dryer vent is overdue for a cleaning. Contact Dream Steam as soon as possible to schedule an appointment.

While there are many benefits to cleaning, the main reason is to prevent the risk of fires. Lint is highly flammable and when it accumulates in a hot vent, it becomes a very serious hazard. Regular vent cleaning will help prevent any potential fire risks. In addition, regular dryer vent cleaning improves the efficiency, increases the lifespan, and reduces the maintenance costs of your dryer. When your dryer is forced to work harder, your energy bills increase, as does wear and tear on your machine. Scheduling a regular dryer vent cleaning with a professional could save you money in the long run.

Our Dryer Vent Cleaning Process

Cleaning dryer vents isn’t a complicated process, but it's important to ensure that it's done properly and thoroughly. Homeowners often attempt to clean vents with DIY kits. However, this can actually create more issues like pushing lint into areas that are hard to reach, punching a hole in the duct, or even breaking the cleaning brush off inside the duct. For a clean, safe home, professional vent cleaning is not only recommended, but necessary.Dream Steam can access your vent from either the exterior or interior of your home. We then use air to blow lint and debris from the dryer vent outside and into your yard. Our team is attentive to ensuring your vents are clean as well as cleaning up any lint or debris that was blown into your yard. Whether your dryer vent systems stretches across your home or is only a few feet, Dream Steam can ensure your vents are properly cleaned. With the effective and efficient team at Dream Steam, your vents will be cleaned within 20 minutes.

What Our Customers Think

I had ducts cleaned on two houses recently. Dream Steam did a fantastic job. James showed me before and after pics while he was there, and wow, what a difference. I wish I had it done much sooner. I will be using Dream Steam on all my new construction sites and remodels in the future.
