Count on our technicians for thorough routine dryer vent cleanings. With experienced eyes and knowledge of what to look for, we protect families across the region from devastating house fires.

A few ways you can also be proactive include:
  • Do not use the dryer without a lint filter.

  • Make sure you clean the lint filter before or after each load of laundry.

  • Remove lint that has collected around the drum.

  • Rigid or flexible metal venting material should be used to sustain proper airflow and drying time. Make sure the air exhaust vent pipe is not restricted and the outdoor vent flap will open when the dryer is operating.

  • Once a year, or more often if you notice that it is taking longer than normal for your clothes to dry, clean lint out of the vent pipe or have a dryer lint removal service do it for you.  

  • Gas dryers should be inspected by a professional to make sure that the gas line and connection are intact and free of leaks.

  • Make sure the right plug and outlet are used and that the machine is connected properly.

  • Follow the manufacturer’s operating instructions and don’t overload your dryer.

  • Turn the dryer off if you leave home or when you go to bed.
