Duct and Vent Cleaning Services
The dryer’s key function is to eliminate moisture recovered during the heating of damp clothing. This humidity is expelled outdoors through the dryer vent ductwork and cap.
Lint will buildup over time and cause blockage within the components preventing proper ventilation and is a dangerous fire hazard. The lint trap generally catches 75% of the lint while the remaining either gets caught in the dryer ductwork or expelled out the dryer vent. Lint buildup in the ductwork occurs over time and creates a very serious a fire hazard.
