Dryer Vent Cleaning Services in Burnaby

Burnaby Laundry Dryer Vent Cleaning

When lint builds up in a dryer duct and its vent, air flowing through the dryer duct is restricted.
Overheated dryer coils can release flammable toxins that may spark a fire and in minutes the overheated dryer can turn into an inferno. Our technicians in Burnaby are skilled duct cleaners, trained and fully certified to remove all lint, dust and buildup from your dryer vents to ensure the appliance runs to its maximum efficiency without the worry of a disaster happening. Regular dryer vent maintenance on residential or commercial machines can reduce your monthly energy costs, increase the lifespan of your dryer and minimize wear-and-tear on your laundry due to unnecessary increased runtime.

Reasons for Needing Your Dryer Vents Cleaned In Burnaby

Taking the time to empty your dryer’s lint trap should be done after each use to maximize the exhaust of hot air from the machine. However, this daily routine isn’t sufficient for keeping your dryer vents free of buildup. There is always a small amount of lint and other debris that makes its way past the screen, collecting and eventually clogging the dryer vent.

Fire Prevention & Safety

Vent Kings understands the importance of safety in your Burnaby home or business. Our experienced technicians use powerful HEPA vacuums to clean out the supply, intake, and return ducts of your dryer, from both the interior and exterior of your property, leaving the vents completely free of any buildup. This will prevent your dryer’s motor from overheating and avoid a fire hazard from happening.

Our Dryer Vent Cleaning Process

We begin the dryer vent cleaning process by testing the dryer(s) and dryer hose followed by localizing the exterior vent(s).
The dryer hose is removed and inspected. It will be cleaned or replaced as needed.
Our technician will then connect our vacuum equipment to the interior vent opening behind the dryer.
The duct is cleaned with an air whip and vacuum, clearing all debris and lint from the inside vent.
Our equipment is then brought outside to repeat the air whip and vacuum cleaning, pulling any remaining debris and lint out of the duct toward the outside of the building. The laundry duct is fully cleaned in both directions, to ensure a thorough job.
To complete the cleaning the dryer hose is reconnected and sealed to the dryer and interior vents.
The exterior vent cover is checked to ensure a safe and secure fit.

Routine Dryer Vent Maintenance

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), you should have your dryer vent cleaned at least once a year. But depending on your unique circumstances, it may need to be done as frequently as every few months to optimize your dryer’s efficiency and avoid a serious fire hazard. A little routine maintenance can help prevent your dryer from working too hard or making a mess in the first place.

Saving Time & Money

Our professional dryer vent cleaning services provide many benefits in addition to fire prevention – reduced energy consumption and better dryer performance. When the dryer’s airflow is restricted by lint buildup, the dryer operates inefficiently, which means it has to work harder, clothes take longer to dry, and it consumes more energy to get the job done. These factors result in higher energy costs, repairs, and eventual replacement. Regular dryer vent maintenance will improve your dryer’s efficiency with faster dry cycles and lower electricity use, saving you both time and money.

FAQS About Dryer Vent Cleaning Burnaby

When fabric fibres shed from the clothes we dry, this can cause a considerable buildup of lint in your appliance. Often, wool and cotton are the most likely culprits when it comes to the production of lint. Increased lint buildup comes with the increased risk for fire hazards and for your dryer to not work at its optimal level, making your dryer work harder and longer to dry a load of laundry. An accumulation of excess lint around or behind your dryer can be the result of a clogged dryer vent.
The more efficiently a dryer vent exhausts air, the less lint buildup in it. For obvious reasons , newer dryers may exhaust better than older ones. Vents with multiple turns and elbows are likely to build up more lint. Very short vents attached to full size dryers may rarely need cleaning. Most vents, however, require annual cleaning.

You can. In fact, it’s a good idea to clean your dryer vents regularly. This will keep any buildups to a minimum. However, without the specialized tools and training professional vent cleaners have, it will be impossible for you to clean all the debris and clogs out from the vents completely.

While you can do a good job cleaning your dryer vents on your own from time to time, when it comes to a major cleaning, you should always hire a professional.
