If your dryer isn’t performing as it used to or you’re smelling strange odors while the system is running, turn to Advantage Heating and Air for dryer vent cleaning solutions throughout Columbus, IN, and the surrounding areas.
Be sure to contact Advantage Heating and Air if you notice any of the following signs that you should have your dryer vent cleaned:
For the majority of homes, dryer vent cleaning is only needed on an annual basis. However, larger families or those that run loads of laundry a bit more frequently can benefit from a dryer vent cleaning every six months.
Dryer vent cleaning frequency should ultimately be determined on a case-by-case basis. For example, if you only do a couple of loads of laundry per week, but find yourself experiencing longer drying times or noticing signs of lint buildup sooner, it’s advisable to err on the side of caution and opt for more frequent cleanings.
On the other hand, if you have a smaller household and your dryer doesn’t get heavy use, you may be able to extend the cleaning interval to every 12 months.
If you’ve never had your dryer vents professionally cleaned, it can be easy to skip on the service and attempt to clean the dryer vent yourself. However, choosing a professional dryer vent cleaning service can provide your home with the following benefits:
The dryer vent cleaning process can vary, depending on your specific needs and how long it’s been since your last cleaning. As a general rule, however, the service typically involves the following steps:
The first step is to turn off the dryer and unplug it. If it’s a gas dryer, we will turn off the gas supply.
Next, we’ll disconnect the vent hose that connects the dryer to the wall and set it aside.
Depending on the setup, we may need to move the dryer away from the wall to access the vent opening.
We will use a specialized dryer vent cleaning brush or vacuum attachment to remove lint and debris from the vent pipe.
We’ll go outside the home to remove the vent hood cover and clean any lint or debris that may have accumulated there.
Once the service is complete, we will reconnect the vent hose, ensuring it’s securely attached. Our team will plug the dryer back in and, if applicable, turn on the gas supply.
Finally, we will run a test cycle to ensure the dryer is functioning correctly and that air is flowing freely through the vent.
