Many people feel no need to worry about lint because they clean their filter after every drying cycle. The fact is, fine particles are constantly making it through to your vents, and if those vents are clogged you put your home in a dangerous situation.
Most dryers are equipped with flaps on the vent exhaust which enables hot air to exit from the dryer while preventing cold air from entering. A stuck flap is often caused by lint build up and could make your dryer perform erratically. Call us today to have your dryer vent professionally and thoroughly cleaned 803-231-0433.
If your dryer vent is out the sidewall, it needs to be a minimum of 6 feet away from the air conditioner.
If your dryer vent is clogged, moisture can condense into pools of water in the dryer vent. It then mixes with excess lint, creating a mache that sticks to the vent walls. This not only clogs the vent further, but also creates perfect conditions for mold and mildew to grow.
Most Homes leak an average of 10-25% of their conditioned air. There are 3 types of duct leakage: Supply Leakage, Equipment Leakage, and Return Leakage. Vent Pros is able to check for your ducts for these and get them back up to standard.

According to the National Air Duct Cleaners Association, homeowners should have their air ducts cleaned every three to five years.
This should be done once every year or once you start to experience common issues such as longer drying times and indoor air temperatures rising during drying times.
