DRYER VENT CLEANING IN STATEN ISLAND
Dryer vents with long runs often have many bends and pressurized air may not be enough to move debris out of the line. Our certified technicians will assess the situation for you with an air flow reading, develop a cleaning strategy to remove your debris, and follow up the service with another air flow reading to ensure the debris has been removed.
WHY SHOULD YOU GET YOUR DRYER VENT CLEANED
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that clothes dryers are associated with approximately 15,600 fires yearly. Fires can occur when lint builds up in the dryer or in the exhaust duct. Lint can block the flow of air, cause excessive heat build-up, and result in a fire in some dryers.
According to recent industry studies, an excessively clogged dryer vent may add an additional $18-$24 dollars to your home's energy bill. That translates to almost $300 a year in unnecessary fees. Most dryer vent cleaning bills come well below this $300 mark, so it only makes sense to follow dryer manufacturer recommendations and have the cleaning performed once a year.
