Check Cleaning Your Dryer Vent Off Of Your To-Do List

Spring is here and it’s time to tackle that to-do list. Valley Chimney can help with not only fireplace and chimney repairs and sweeps but also dryer vent cleaning! If it’s been a while since you’ve had your dryer vent inspected and freed of lint, it’s time to get that done.

It’s common to have a clogged dryer vent and you may not even know it, however, there are some warning signs to look for if you believe it needs attention. If there is mold, mildew, your dryer is overheating or there is an excess of lint, it’s time to call a Certified Dryer Exhaust Technician(C-DET), like Valley Chimney.

Manufacturers recommend the dryer vent system is cleaned and inspected once per year, however, if you’re noticing some of your clothes are coming out hotter than usual or it’s taking longer to dry your fabrics, an inspection just once a year might not be enough. The four-step process to a dryer vent cleaning is simple when done properly by a technician.

There are a few different parts of the dryer vent and exhaust that need to be cleaned, including the vent duct, pipe, and wall vent. Vent cleaning will prevent potential fires in your home, and it’ll also improve the efficiency and lifespan of your dryer.

“Valley Chimney has been servicing my home in Oswego, IL for three years now. The first year they recommended a heat reflector and different wood grill. What a difference that made! Now we actually get some heat in the room instead of just the ambiance! They also fixed some issues with brick and helped me save a few dollars by telling me how to remove the gas line correctly to convert to wood only. If you want a pro servicing your chimney, these are the guys to call.”
