Dryer Vent Cleaning in Chicago

Many homeowners are not aware of the need for regular dryer vent cleaning, a task that is very important but often overlooked. Even if you regularly clean your dryer’s lint trap, there’s work to be done to stay safe and maximize energy efficiency. Vertical Chimney Care, a leading dryer vent cleaning company, offers quick and easy dryer duct cleaning service to homeowners in the Chicagoland area.

Why Dryer Vent Cleaning Services?

Benefits of an annual dryer vent cleaning include the following:

  • Safety: Dryers run at high temperatures and lint is extremely flammable. A backed-up dryer vent can lead to a house fire. Clogged vents can also cause the gases and carbon monoxide that should be released outside to back up into your home. If this happens, the compromised air quality may result in health problems for your family.
  • Energy Savings: Have you noticed that your dryer requires several cycles to properly dry your clothes? That occurs when the appropriate amount of hot air is not reaching your dryer due to a clogged vent. A backed-up dryer vent results in a less efficient dryer, one that takes longer to dry, uses more energy than is optimal and raises your electricity bill.
  • Longer Life: A dryer that requires multiple cycles or an excessive amount of time to dry a single load is running more than it should, which reduces its lifespan. An overworked appliance can lead to mechanical problems and breakdowns. Proper care, including regular, professional dryer vent cleaning, reduces the need for repairs and extends the lifespan of the appliance.

When to Clean Your Dryer Vent

Recognizing that you need a dryer vent cleaning is fairly easy. Some of the key signs to look for are the following:

  • Drying your clothes takes longer than 30-40 minutes.
  • Your clothes get unusually hot after you dry them.
  • The vent hood flap doesn’t open while the dryer is running.
  • A year has passed since the last cleaning or you can’t remember the last time you cleaned your dryer vent.

Choose Vertical Chimney Care

Your dryer vent may not be the first home maintenance task on your mind, but you certainly shouldn’t forget about it. Many home fires are caused by a backed-up dryer vent. Lint is highly flammable and needs only a small amount of heat buildup to ignite. If you haven’t had your dryer vent cleaned in a while and you notice that drying your clothes takes longer than usual, we have the solution.
