dryer, frequency of use, and the length of the vent, more frequent attention may be needed. AIRTEK cleans

dryer ducts a number of ways, including crawling the ductwork or using lint-removal equipment. The loosened lint or other debris is then extracted and removed, resulting in a cleaner, dryer environment.

A blocked vent is ultimately problematic for many reasons:

  • The accumulation of highly combustible lint and reduced exhaust airflow increases the chance of fire
  • Dryers work harder, increasing energy/utility bills and shortening the lifespan of the appliance
  • Clothes take longer to dry, resulting in wasted energy and resources
  • Potential to damage clothes
  • Triggers mechanical failures (thermostat, limit switch, damaged screen, or crushed hose)
  • Potential to cause carbon monoxide to be released (with gas dryers), which can be fatal with prolonged exposure.
