There are several indicators that you may have a clogged or blocked dryer vent in need of cleaning:
How the Dryer Vent is Cleaned
Advanced Chimney Cleaning uses an airflow meter to test temperature and air flow before and after the cleaning. We use specialized tools designed specifically for cleaning the vent from one end to the other. We utilize a rotory brush a long, flexible rods. This brush spins via drill motor, cleaning the walls of the duct gently, yet completely. Air pressure from the inside will push the lint outdoors, where we collect and dispose of the lint. Do not be misled by the do-it-yourself kits found in big box stores.
Dryer Vent Re-routing
Advanced Chimney Cleaning offers dryer vent re-routing for customers who want to have their dryer vent exit at another part of the home for reasons such as safety concerns. For example, there are some cases where the exhaust is going into an attic, basement or crawl space due to bad design or a tear in the duct. Rerouting the dryer vent hose requires closing the previous vent opening, thus creating a new opening and moving the dryer vent pipe to the new area.
