    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 within the home, this safety problem has an easy and cost effective 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 furthermore 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 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. As a result, you could save money and your life with this simple procedure.

    Technicians Cleaning Checklist – Schedule Today!

    • Dryer duct must be at least 4” diameter and as large as dryer outlet.
    • Concealed ducts must be rigid metal (galvanized or aluminum) duct.
    • Duct joints are secured with metal tape, never screws or rivets.
    • Joints are installed so the pipe connections point in the direction of the airflow (away from the dryer).
    • Dryer vents shall be independent of all other systems and terminate outdoors. (Do not vent into another chimney or vent). Outside termination hood should be equipped with a backdraft damper.
    • Use of flexible metal connectors between the dryer and the duct. Plastic connector ducting is not recommended.
    • Assure the rodent and bird screen protection is intact.

    Reviews

    Done Just Right came to my rescue when the pressure tank for my well sprung a major leak. My carpeting got wet, they came in very quickly to put in equipment to dry out the carpet and clean and sanitize a couple days later. I now have dry carpet and my house back in order. I highly recommend them. they are fast and easy to work with. Thank you!

    Very courteous and cleaned up after the work was finished. Explained everything that they were going to do! Had duct cleaning done after some big remodeling. Would highly recommend them.

    They did a wonderful job and were very polite. Dave and his crew also provided me with so much information that I didn’t know before. I am going to recommend my family to them.
