Save Money.

Simply put, a harder working dryer vent runs longer to dry the clothes. The longer it runs, the more money it costs.

Alpine Duct Cleaning’s Dryer Vent Cleaning Method

Cleaning Dryer Vent San JoseWe use a professional system of tools and processes to get rid of clogs. Alpine Duct Cleaning will work to make sure that your dryer performs correctly and last longer without needing a lot of expensive repairs, and let your clothes dry sooner and more evenly while having less lint.

Alpine Duct Cleaning has experienced and qualified professionals who are available to clean your dryer system. We are thoroughly familiar with most makes and models of dryers and know how to successfully clean the duct interior components of any dryer. To be prepared for our dryer vent cleaning process, we first look for the outer dryer vent cap (that may be detached). We only use compressed air that does not damage duct work as typical brushes do! The compressed air pulls anything out that is blocking the inside vent. Our experts get into the dryer ventilation pipe’s nooks and crannies as well to reach any potential problems areas that may cause lint, and other types of particles, to quickly build up. Once the ducts are clear, we make sure to clean up any residue, and leave your dryer better off than when we arrived!

Prevent Fires & Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Every year, dryers cause over 15,000 building fires. The major reason for these fires is failing to clean and maintain the dryer vent. Once a dryer vent gets clogged, it forces your dryer to have to work even harder due to reduced or restricted airflow, and that may increase the interior temperature of the dryer, cause its thermostat to fail, use up a lot of energy, as well as reduce the lifespan of the appliance. The worst thing that can happen is your dryer will get so hot that it can cause a fire in your house or building.

It is truly beneficial to remove clogs from dryer vents once a year or so, depending on use. It decreases the chance that mold will develop, improves fire safety, and reduces utility bills. Other benefits are that it helps to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning, and preserves your clothes and reduces drying time.
