THINK SAFE! – Dirty dryer vents create lint buildups that are highly flammable and are a common cause of house fires. In addition, regular cleaning promotes faster drying and saves you money on the operating costs of your drying machine.
Sometimes there are structural issues with the dryer vent and the exhaust vent of the dryer. We usually advise our customers of such problems and in most cases, it is recommended for them to discuss options with an exteriors renovation company.
Frecuently Asked Questions ( FAQ )
It is recommended that dryer vents are cleaned when your furnace and duct cleaning is done both in order to save you money and also to keep a good maintenance schedule.
The standard length dryer vent (6-10 ft) should be cleaned every 2 years.
However, that can change depending on conditions and use. For example, in a household that does laundry almost daily, the dryer vent can be plugged within 6 months.
Rooftop dryer vents should be cleaned yearly typically, as the exterior vent has a screen that clogs quickly. The same goes for any dryer vent that has been equipped with a bird guard.
A typical accessible dryer vent cleaning in the Calgary area is $59 as an add-on service to our furnace cleaning service.
Dryer vents not easily accessible such as those in rooftops or hard-to-reach areas are quoted on a per-case basis depending on the length, width, location, and other factors.
As a general rule we do not recommend this for a number of reasons: 1) most households do not have the tools to reach the entire vent 2) some cleaning methods might cause damage to your appliance and vent 3) if the vent is not easy to reach this may pose a safety danger for the cleaner if not trained properly
There are a number of factors that can point to a clogged dryer vent. Some of the most prominent are:
1) Your dryer machine not drying properly.
2) Dirt showing up from the vent exterior.
3) Your laundry room/machine hat excessively when drying a load.
A preventable disaster
Clogged dryer vents are an increasing factor of preventable house fires. the clogged lint from the dryers is a highly flammable by-product, together with Southern Alberta’s dry climate it becomes the perfect ignition point of a fire.
Another issue is that wood remains the most widely used material for construction in Western Canada. As much as technology has improved with fire retardant treatments, wood is wood, and as such burns easily. This is why preventing house fires is a priority for any household.
Don’t delay the preventable and make sure you add this essential service to your yearly to do list.
