Dryer Vent Cleaning Service in Eden Prairie
Why should I have my dryer vent cleaned?
Fire Hazard - According to the U.S. Fire Administration, "2,900 home clothes dryer fires are reported each year and cause an estimated 5 deaths, 100 injuries, and $35 million in property loss. Failure to clean the dryer is the leading cause of home clothes dryer fires."
Efficiency and Energy - A clogged or even partially clogged dryer vent may cause much longer drying times, ultimately driving up your energy bill. This added stress on your dryer may also lead to a shorter lifespan and earlier replacement.
Health and Humidity - When your dryer vent is clogged, the air from the dryer is often pushed back into the home. This can cause major humidity issues, including a musty smell from the area and in your freshly dried clothes. In severe cases this may also lead to mold growth or carbon monoxide being released back into the house instead of through the dryer vent to the outside of the home.
How often should I have my dryer vent cleaned?
We recommend having your dryer vent cleaned every 1-2 years. Depending on factors such as frequency of dryer usage and length and diameter of dryer vent ductwork, we will use our professional opinion to determine the suggested frequency for your individual needs.
What process is used to clean my dryer vent?
At MN Duct Pros, we use a high powered vacuum along with a combination of air pressure and contact to pull out any build up from inside your dryer vent line. Having your dryer vent cleaned can also help with humidity control and overall dryer efficiency, potentially saving you money.
