The Science behind Dryer Vent Cleaning:
Dryer vent cleaning is the cleaning of the shaft that expels warm air and lint from your dryer to the outside of your home or commercial setting. If this shaft is obstructed or too long, then your clothes dryer will struggle to dry clothes in a timely manner.
Are your clothes not drying in one cycle? 95% of the time your dryer vent needs to be cleaned out. Don’t rush to buy another dryer! This is very common. Let Healthy Homes save you some money here. The best way to tell if a dryer vent needs to be cleaned:
1- After a cycle of drying, the top of the dryer is very warm.
2- Dryer lint screen warnings pop up on your newer dryer.
3- Moisture builds up in your dryer.
4- Clothes take multiple cycles to get dry.
