Lint build-up in the dryer vent is the #1 cause of appliance-caused fires in homes. Chem-Dry of Williamsburg and Hampton provides dryer vent cleaning services for your home and safety!
According to data from the National Fire Protection Association, In 2010-2014, U.S. fire departments responded to an estimated average of 15,970 home structure fires involving clothes dryers or washing machines each year. These fires caused annual averages of 13 civilian deaths, 444 civilian injuries, and $238 million in direct property damage. The vast majority of fires (92%) involved clothes dryers.
Using the Chem-Dry Dryer Vent Cleaning Kit, we go into the vents with an inspection camera, allowing us to see the build-up of lint and debris attached to the dryer vent wall. These debris are the #1 cause of dryer related fires in homes. The cleaning process takes approximately 30 minutes plus set up and tear down, making it easy and painless. This process increases the efficiency of your dryer while reducing energy costs. It will also extend the life of your dryer. Like our other services, you can trust Chem-Dry to get the best clean possible!
First, we take a look at the layout (inlet, outlet, and basic location of dryer in the home) to assess the construction. NOTE: WE DO NOT CLEAN FLEXIBLE NON-METAL DUCTING WITH THIS PROCESS.
Next, we use the inspection camera to take a few photos/short video of the dryer vent to document the before condition.
Following this, If dryer wasn’t moved in step 2, move dryer and disconnect flexible hose connecting the dryer to the dryer vent.
Next, we insert vacuum adapter into dryer vent and hook up vacuum source to the 2” port.
Then, we attach a brush to flexible spring lead and insert through top of vacuum adapter.
Continue to add flexible cleaning rods as needed until entire dryer vent has been cleaned.
Once the end of the vent has been reached, start to remove the flexible cleaning rods one at a time.
Remove vacuum adapter and clean up.
Clean the vent on the dryer and lint trap area. This should be done manually with the brush on a flexible cleaning rod for the dryer vent. Using the lint brush clean the lint trap area of the dryer.
Lastly, we clean up, hook up the dryer, and put back in place.
