Protect Your Home with Frequent Dryer Vent Cleaning
Kleen Aire Services provides dryer vent cleaning for homes in Quesnel, Prince George, Williams Lake, and the surrounding areas. Dryer vent cleaning should be performed every 6 months to 3 years depending on a variety of factors including usage, dryer efficiency, length of duct, number of turns in duct, and length of any vertical ducts.
Why Clean Your Dryer Vent?
Dryer vents become clogged because lint particles bypass the lint filter entering the duct with warm moist air which clings to the walls of the duct. The factors like long ductwork, vertical ducts, and the number of turns increase this buildup. The buildup restricts airflow through the duct which increases back pressure on the dryer fan causing the dryer to overheat.
Benefits of Dryer Vent Cleaning
Most homeowners do not think about dryer vent cleaning until their dryer stops working or overheats and causes a fire. In some cases new dryers have been purchased with the homeowner thinking the old one was wore out. Then they were surprised only to find that the new dryer didn't work any better because the dryer vent was clogged with lint.
