Dryer Vent Cleaning Pricing and Process - MN Duct Pros
We prefer to hold off on dryer vent cleaning during the winter months. If waiting is an options, we can put you on our dryer vent list and get in touch during early spring. In extreme cases, we will do what we can to help you out.

Limitations for roof vents: We carry two ladders, a 20 footer and a 36 footer and in some instances may also be able to access the roof from a window. We do have a secondary method of cleaning from inside the home when applicable. Please let us know if you have any concerns about this and we can address the situation ahead of time.
Winter dryer vents: Sometimes we are unable to clean dryer vents because of snow or ice in the winter months. Roofs and ladders can be dangerous, air hoses can freeze up, and lint clean up from snow is nearly impossible. If we are unable to safely clean the dryer vent from the exit point, and waiting is an option, we will come back in the spring to clean the dryer vent. If an emergency issue does arise, we will do everything we can to remedy the situation, exploring alternative cleaning methods and options. We do offer emergency dryer vent cleaning if applicable.

What process is used to clean my dryer vent?
At MN Duct Pros, we clean the dryer vent from the outside. We use a reverse spinning ball combined with 175-200 psi of compressed air. This specialized tool drives its way through the dryer vent ducting all the way to the back of the dryer. On its way in and out it dislodges any lint or build up and shoots it out of the system at the exit of the home. On the outside we also use a high powered vacuum with dust bag to collect all lint expelled. Upon cleaning we will check for proper air flow and backdraft flap operation.
Internal cleaning: We come inside to check the dryer vent connection, vacuum the lint trap, and vacuum the lint trap housing. We do nothing to the internal workings of the dryer. We specifically clean the entire dryer vent line from hood to dryer.
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.
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.
