Why Your Dryer Vent Needs a Professional

Being a homeowner can be expensive and lots of expenses just “pop up” over the years. While some are manageable, others can break the bank! As homeowners we are all on the lookout for ways to save a little bit of money, especially on home repairs and maintenance.

When it comes to dryer vent cleaning, you may have considered a DIY approach to save a few dollars, but you should know that hiring a professional technician to clean your dryer vent is not only affordable, it could help save you money.

At Lint Lizards Services we pride ourselves on providing a high-quality service at a fair price.

It might seem like a simple task, or even an inconvenience, but there’s actually a lot that goes into cleaning a dryer vent.

Often homeowners will do an incomplete job, or even make matters worse, when attempting to clean their dryer vent themselves. A complete job means cleaning out the interior of the dryer and the exhaust vent, both of which are typically packed with lint and other debris and require specialized tools.

A DIY job has the potential to pack lint tighter into the vents, rather than remove it. This not only further reduces the efficiency of your dryer, but makes it more susceptible to fires as well.

At Lint Lizards we have the tools, know-how, and experience to guarantee a job well done. Each of our crew members is a Certified Dryer Exhaust Technician recognized by the Chimney Safety Institute of America, the only nationally recognized certification of its kind.

Not too shabby.

When you hire Lint Lizards Services you can rest assured that our technicians will do a comprehensive job cleaning your dryer vent. We’ll get every nook and cranny, in the dryer port, the exhaust duct, the termination vent, and the transition duct.

We will also do a variety of diagnostic testing and measurements. This will not only demonstrate the differences in efficiency before and after the service, but can detect unseen problems that you might have missed if you did the job yourself.

It may be tempting to clean out your dryer vents on your own, but be careful not to be short-sighted. An improper cleaning could lead to appliance breakdowns and/or reduced lifespan, fire hazard, increased utility bills, long drying times, and air quality problems.
