National dryer vent cleaning improves the safety and efficiency of your dryer installation. As a dryer vent becomes filled with lint and other debris drying time increases. It can also cause the dryer itself to overheat.
If you have noticed that your dryer is running longer than it used to, then you may need to have a National dryer vent cleaning performed. Some dryer vents are relatively short and straight and can be cleaned easily by the homeowner. Others aren’t that easy, and may require the use of special tools and equipment. National Dryer Vent Cleaning has tools specifically designed for this purpose. With these tools National dryer vent cleaning is able to do a thorough job of cleaning even the most difficult installations. While dryer vents are routinely blocked with lint, animal nesting is also another frequent cause of dryer vent blockage. Our equipment allows us to remove these blockages as well.
Another problem created by blocked dryer vents serving gas dryers is the possibility of carbon monoxide (CO) seepage into your home. If the dryer is not exhausting properly to the outdoors, CO can back up into the home.
We recommend that this type of National dryer vent cleaning be done at least every two years. If you have never had your dryer vent cleaned before, then you should definitely consider having this done. In many cases, the cost of the cleaning can be recovered over the next year by your savings in hydro alone.
