Why Should I Get My Dryer Vent Cleaned Once A Year?
It preserves the life of your dryer.
All that lint builds up in the exhaust hose that you can’t see, which slowly closes off the hose and forces the dryer to work harder.
Simply put, a harder working dryer duct runs longer to dry the clothes. The longer it runs, the more money it costs.
Prevent Dryer Fires.
If the dryer exhaust hose gets clogged up enough, it strains the dryer so much it gets hot – sometimes enough to cause a fire. See our below section for preventing dryer fires.

How do I know if my dryer vent needs to be cleaned?
Although cleaning out the lint trap is necessary and routine, it doesn’t prevent a fire from sparking inside of your dryer vent. To assist you, Alpine Dream Clean has outlined all of the things you should watch for to determine whether your dryer duct needs to be properly cleaned. You don’t want the people living in your home to be put at risk when there are things that you can do to prevent harm to your home, your
loved ones, and you.
The following are signs that you can watch out for to know when it’s time for your dryer vent to be cleaned:
- Clothes are not completely dry at the end of the drying cycle.
- After the drying cycle clothing has a strange odor.
- After the drying cycle clothes are hot to the touch.
- The vent hood flap on the dryer is not accessible while the dryer is operating.
- Your dryer vent has not been serviced for more than a year.
- There is obvious debris since of the outer opening of the dryer vent.
- Drying is taking longer (over 35-40 minutes).
- There is excess heat in the room the dryer is running in.
- There are large amounts of lint accumulated inside of the lint trap of the dryer while it is operating.
- There are noticeable signs of debris and lint particles surrounding the dryer’s lint filter.
- There is excessive odor being emitted from the dryer sheet used in the drying cycle.
Save Money On Energy Bills
The best way to reduce energy usage and ensure that your clothes dry more quickly is to clean your dryer vents. When a dryer vent is blocked it may no longer cycle to dry your clothes and may become a fire hazard. We here at Alpine Dream Clean will help you save energy and make sure your family and home are kept safe. We previously discussed that the lint screen that is inside of the dryer should be cleaned on a regular basis and your dryer vent should also be cleaned.
A dryer should be inspected and professionally cleaned at least once a year. We clear any obstructions away from the dryer vents to ensure air flows properly through the venting system. This will help to save on your energy bills.
The Dryer Vent Cleaning Method Used By Alpine Dream Clean
We utilize a professional system of processes and tools to eliminate clogs. Alpine Air Care works to ensure that your dryer performs properly and will last longer without needing to have lots of expensive repairs, to allow your clothes to dry more evenly and sooner, and have less lint on them.
Alpine Dream Clean has qualified, experienced professionals who can clean your system. We are very familiar with every model and make of dryer and know how to clean any dryer duct’s interior components successfully. To prepare for the cleaning process, we look for the outside dryer vent cap (that can be detached). Our skilled professionals will then place a long snake brush and long vacuum tube inside of the ventilation pipe in order to clean out your ventilation system. This vacuum pulls anything that is caused the inside vent to be blocked. Our experts will get into all of the nooks and crannies of the dryer’s ventilation pipe as well well in order to reach all of the potential problem areas that can cause lint, as well as other particles, build up quickly.
Prevent Fires & Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
More than 15,000 building fires are caused by dryers every year. The main reason for the fires is failing to maintain and clean the dryer vent. When a dryer vent is clogged it forces the dryer to have to work harder due to restricted or reduced airflow, and that can increase the dryer’s interior temperature, cause the thermostat to fail, use lots of energy, and reduce your appliance’s life span. In the worst case scenario, the dryer will get so hot that a fire will be caused in your house.
When clogs are removed from dryer ducts, it is very beneficial for two main reasons. It decreases utility bills, improves fire safety, and reduces the chance of mold developing. Another major benefit is that it avoids carbon monoxide poisoning, and also reduces drying time and preserves your clothing.
