Dryer Vent Cleaning


Dryer Vent Cleaning Services

Right and Clean can provide dryer vent services in the Atlanta GA area saving you from creating potentially dangerous conditions of a fire or carbon monoxide poisoning. Dryer vent fires in the US have resulted in death, injuries and thousands of dollars in property damage. These fires are due to a build-up of lint and debris in the clothes dryer which then block the air flow in the dryer vent.

The exhaust stream carries the water vapor from wet clothes along with particles from clothes which are highly flammable through the duct. The accumulated lint in the duct reduces the dryer’s ability to get rid of heated water vapor allowing heat energy to accumulate in the machine. This causes the dryer to overheat leading to equipment failures as well as sparks in the dryer causing the lint built up in the dryer vent to catch fire.

Additionally a blocked dryer vent can reduce the air circulation of your dryer and can cause it to run longer, hotter and inefficiently substantially increasing your energy consumption. Overheating in your dryer due to reduced air flow can also destroy your clothes, increase your energy bill and shorten the life span of your dryer. The number of loads that your dryer can do in its lifetime will also significantly reduce as it will take it longer to dry one load of clothes. Dryer vents in many cases are built with metal duct or flexible plastic. The flexible plastic ducts over time will sage and allow lint to build up inside. The ridges of the vent also trap the lint. Additionally screens present at the termination of the duct can have lint build up which ultimately restricts air flow.

Right and Clean located in the Metro Atlanta GA area can clean your dryer vent professionally and efficiently. A clean dryer vent will reduce your operating costs, lower your energy bills and remove the chance of a fire occurring from your dryer vent.

The other major reason to have your dryer vent professionally cleaned is to reduce the chance of carbon monoxide poisoning. Dryer vents that are clogged do not allow for exhaust to be released properly. This is potentially dangerous for gas clothes dryers which when clogged can cause carbon monoxide to be released into your home. The prolonged exposure to carbon monoxide can be fatal. Let Right and Clean come to your assistance by cleaning your dryer vents thereby reducing the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
