One of the fastest growing business opportunities besides air duct cleaning is dryer vent cleaning. Fire departments in many cities, towns, and communities are recommending homeowners have their dryer vents cleaned every year. The amount of dryer vent fires are rising every year. Not only do these fires create enormous damage, but sadly, they have also caused many deaths.
Today, many dryer vent ducts range from 12 – 35ft in length. Most dryers only have enough exhaust power to force lint 5 – 8ft through the vent ducts. Dryers throw off high heat through the vent. This heat along with the wet clothes produces high humidity. This humidity (moisture) is absorbed into the lint that settles in the ductwork. This lint now begins to stick together to create a balling effect. This balling effect creates a blockage. Once a blockage occurs in the vent duct, a back-up effect occurs forcing lint back to the dryer. This is the major cause of dryer fires. Usually, when clogging occurs, dryers will take 2 – 4 times longer to dry clothes. This can also cause damage to the dryer and raise utility bills.
