Dryer Duct Cleaning

Clothes tumbling round and round in a dryer may seem harmless, but as they tumble these items are continuously contributing to a stockpile of lint and dust in the dryer's ductwork that can at any moment erupt in a blazing inferno.

For this reason dryer duct cleaning is essential.

Dryer duct cleaning is fairly simple to do and many homeowners do it themselves. Others who have dust allergies and don't want to deal with the mess will hire a duct cleaning professional to do the job for them.

Commercial and residential, professional dryer duct cleaning is fairly affordable. Usually this service ranges from about $90.00 - $150.00 depending on where you live. When compared to extent of damage a dryer duct fire can cause, this service is extremely reasonable.

Dryer ducts typically need to be cleaned about twice a year, sometimes more if your household does an excessive amount of laundry. Homeowners who choose to do dryer duct cleaning themselves can benefit from following a few simple steps to get this chore over and done with.

Do It Yourself Dryer Duct Cleaning

  • Pull your dryer out from the wall
  • Disconnect the flexible duct from the back of the dryer
  • Using a wet/dry vacuum, insert the vacuum wand as far into the duct as you can
  • Disconnect the other end of the duct and insert the vacuum wand as far as you can
  • Continue by vacuuming out the port at the rear of the dryer
  • Replace the duct to leave it as you found it

Many people do not realize how important dryer duct cleaning is until it's too late. So to prevent drying from leading to crying, look into dryer duct cleaning and protect your home and the people you love.
