Dryer Vent Cleaning in Tulsa
Most new models of clothes dryers now have a built in sensor letting you know when your dryer is running too hot and in need of a dryer vent cleaning. But on older models you will want to look for signs such as the clothes not getting dry enough or taking too long to dry or the dryer seems to be getting too hot. These are sure signs that your dryer vent needs a good cleaning.
If your dryer vent has been installed by your builder with the exhaust going straight through the wall to the outside, this is something easy enough to clean yourself, just simply pull the dryer out, disconnect it and use a brush to get out all the accumulated lint. Usually these types of ducting are only about a foot or less in length and very easy to clean.
If after disconnecting your dryer and you see that the dryer vent runs up a wall with the exhaust going out to the ceiling area, then this would be the time to contact a professional. These types of vents are too long to clean yourself without the proper equipment. Over time the longer dryer vents will accumulate enough lint to cause quite a blockage, making it impossible for your dryer to do its job properly.
The other concern that most homeowners are not aware of is the risk of a house fire from the overheated dryer igniting the lint. This is the main reason it is recommended to have your dryer vent cleaning performed at least once a year.

Why clean your dryer vent?
Most consumers know to clean the lint from the lint trap after each use. But most overlook the build up in the dryer vent itself. Your Dryer vent system is designed to remove moisture, lint, and heat from the home. The dryer vent should funnel any lint that builds up in the dryer outside but it is inevitable that some of the lint is going to stick to the inside lining of the ducting and over a period of time more lint clings to it and then even more and so on. This then becomes a blockage and ends up suffocating the air flow, preventing it from exhausting outside. Your dryer needs a continued air flow and circulation to be able to dry your clothes properly.
This can be very detrimental to your dryer because it needs more air, uses more electricity and also can wear your dryer out faster. Not only will you be paying more in energy costs but you will also be looking for a new dryer soon as well. As you can see, the mounting issues with dryer vents outweigh the cost of getting your dryer vent cleaned.
Our Method of Dryer Vent Cleaning
When the dryer vent cleaning tech arrives, he will remove your dryer from the wall, pull it out and access it from the back. He then cleans the dryer vent and ducting with a long handled brush rotating it around to pull out any lint, repeating the process several times. After the initial blockage has been cleared he will utilize the same high powered truck mounted vacuum brush and hose system used for their air duct cleaning service, running it through the dryer vent inside the wall from point of entrance to exit.
This system has a high rpm rotating brush which loosens dirt, lint and debris from the dryer duct while thoroughly vacuuming, trapping, and pulling the debris out to a receiving tank in the van. The back inside of the dryer is then cleaned and the dryer ducting secured back onto the dryer, all of the dirt and lent that has accumulated under the dryer over the years is then cleaned and swept before placing the dryer back to its original position.
