Dryer Vent

It is the new year! We at King’s Cleaning Solutions have held true to our 2018 resolution and have done an even better job at customer service than before. We plan on holding onto this resolution into 2019 and beyond.

We are happy to announce we have a new service starting this month. We will be cleaning dryer vents.

So what is dryer vent cleaning, you ask? Let’s take a look!

Your home’s HVAC system pumps hot and cool air via ducts. These ducts are made of a flexible aluminum material wrapped around a spiral. This way, the duct material can twist and turn as needed. Dust and dirt can build up inside the duct system and cause serious health problems in addition to potential fire hazards. Most homes that have a washer and dryer have a smaller duct system – the dryer vent. Build-up can occur in these ducts as well, but there is the potential for a much more serious problem – a home fire.

You know what lint is. You clean your lint trap each time you use the dryer for your clothes. Lint can back up into the dryer proper, frequently because of poor ventilation and dirty ducts. Here the lint comes in contact with the heating element and ignite into a fire. The most modern and high tech dryers can catch fire, so keeping the ducts free of lint is paramount.

Those who have gas dryers stand another chance of a serious issue. Carbon Monoxide, CO, is an odorless gas that can be fatal. Even low levels of CO can cause symptoms that mimic flu and cause severe dizziness and nausea.

It is common for some municipalities to require duct cleaning on a regular basis. Many home insurance companies add this as a part to their policies and require documentation of cleaned ducts. King’s Cleaning Solutions will be glad to schedule a duct inspection and cleaning for the optimal operation of your home dryer. Even if this is not an absolute requirement, having your ducts cleaned regularly will mean a more efficient drying cycle. This saves the big three: time, money and energy.
