Dryer Vent Cleaning

Prevent Clothes Dryer Fires

Each year 15,500 American families suffer home fires associated with their clothes dryers. These fires are responsible for approximately 10 deaths, 310 injuries, and $96,000,000 in property damage.

Dryer Fires – A Common Household Problem

Lack of maintenance is the leading cause of dryer fires with lint sited as the leading material for ignition. The fires may be caused by:

  • Failure of mechanical and/or electrical parts within the dryer
  • Improper materials placed in the dryer
  • Insufficient airflow due to improper installation and dirty dryer vents

Dryer vent cleaning before and after.

A Simple Solution to Combat Dryer Fires

Unlike many health and safety issues we are faced with in the home, this safety problem has an easy and economical solution. The best way to prevent dryer fires is a thorough dryer inspection by the professionals at Done Just Right Cleaning.

Is your dryer not drying? A key to effective dryer performance is optimal airflow. A properly installed all-metal dryer vent will help ensure this airflow. Done Just Right Cleaning will check to ensure there is proper airflow for the dryer and that the right equipment is in place.

Causes & Cures of Dryer Fires

Reduced airflow and lint build-up can cause overheating. When this happens, the high temperature limit safety switches cycle on and off continuously and thus may fail over a period of time. This results in higher costs of operation and could result in a costly and dangerous dryer fire.

Done Just Right Cleaning uses a variety of specialized tools and procedures to clean dryer vent ductwork. The entire process usually takes about one hour. However, cleaning is only one part of our service. The dryer vent is also inspected for several mechanical issues that should be checked by a professional duct cleaner. Done Just Right Cleaning is the qualified choice.

Advanced Warning Signs

  • Clothes (especially towels or jeans) take a very long time to dry.
  • Clothes are hotter than usual at the end of the cycle.
  • Vent hood flap doesn’t open when dryer is on.

If you notice any of these signs, schedule a professional dryer cleaning or inspection immediately. You could save money and even your life with this simple procedure.
